Servings
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels (makes 10 cups popped)
  • 1/2 cup Cholaca baking wafers
  • 2-5 tbsp sugar of choice
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil
  • Himalayan sea salt to taste
Instructions
  1. In a double boiler melt the baking wafers.
  2. While wafters are melting pop your popcorn. I use an air popper– if you don’t have one I would strongly recommend one. I use mine constantly!
  3. When the pure cacao is melted, stir in coconut oil (to help with viscosity), and sugar to taste. I would start with 1-2 tablespoons and add in sugar until you like the sweetness. Remember that this will be paired with sea salt to you don’t have to be over generous!
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and transfer the now-popped popcorn into an even layer.
  5. Using a spoon or a label, drip the melted chocolate mixture over the popcorn using as much or as little as you’d like. Pure cacao does give quite the energy kick, so I mix chocolate covered popcorn with plain popcorn so I don’t get hyper!
  6. While liquid is still wet sprinkle with sea salt.
  7. Pop the entire tray into the freezer for about 5 minutes or until liquid has hardened, break apart with your fingers, and enjoy!
