Chocolate & Coconut Popcorn
 
Chocolate & Coconut Popcorn
Ingredients
  • 1 cup of unpopped popcorn
  • 2 tsp of coconut oil, divided
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (your choice: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate)
  • ½ cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ cup toasted coconut flakes
  • ½ tsp sea salt to taste
Instructions
  1. If you're going to toast your coconut flakes, start with that by putting ½ cup of sweetened coconut flakes in a thin layer on a baking sheet and baking them at 350 for 7-12 minutes or until browned to your liking.
  2. Next, put 1½ tsp of coconut oil in the bottom of your popcorn popping pan and melt.
  3. Add three kernels of popcorn and once all 3 pop, pour the rest of your unpopped popcorn into the pan and continue to shake (or stir the handle if you're using a popcorn maker) until the popping slows. Remove from heat.
  4. Next, use the double boiler method to melt your chocolate with ½ tsp of coconut oil (to make it drizzle better).
  5. Then spread your popcorn out on a layer of wax paper on a baking pan and drizzle with chocolate, sprinkle with coconut flakes, and add a dash of sea salt.
  6. Let the chocolate harden, then add to bowls and enjoy!

Chocolate Coconut Popcorn // Salty CanaryI opted for using milk chocolate (I’m not a dark chocolate fan) and both toasted and regular sweetened coconut flakes to add some crunch and some chewiness along with some sea salt. I’m usually NOT a huge fan of the salty/sweet mix, but this is GOOD! Chocolate Coconut Popcorn // Salty Canary
