Fun, chocolaty twist on popcorn!
Recipe makes one medium bowl of popcorn.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 110g (1/2 cup) popcorn kernels
  • 2 TBSPs coconut oil
  • 270g white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • orange food coloring (I use Wilton’s)
  • Halloween sprinkles (like these)

Instructions

  1. Line a baking pan, the kind that fits into your fridge, with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place 4 kernels and 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a large pot, cover it with a lid. (I use an enamel pot with a glass lid.) Set over medium-high heat. Once the kernels pop, quickly lift the lid and toss in the rest of the kernels. Shake the pot to evenly distribute the kernels, wait for them to pop.
  3. Once they begin popping, shake the pot occasionally, until the popping slows down to about 3 seconds between each pop. Immediately remove the pot from heat, remove the lid and transfer popcorn into a large bowl. Remove any kernels that have not popped.
  4. In a heatproof bowl, placed over a pot of simmering water, melt the chocolate. If the water starts to boil too hard, remove the pot from heat for a minute, then put it back on. Stir occasionally with a spatula.
  5. Remove bowl from heat when most of the chocolate is melted. Let it melt completely then add food coloring, as much as you want to get the intensity of the color you’re looking for. If the chocolate isn’t very pourable, add some coconut oil to thin it out.
  6. Pour 1/2 of the chocolate over popcorn and stir with a spatula until all popcorn is coated. Transfer popcorn to the baking pan, in a single layer. Drizzle with more chocolate, then sprinkle with sprinkles.
  7. Place in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. Once chocolate has hardened, remove pan from the fridge and transfer popcorn to a large bowl. Break any popcorn clusters created by the chocolate.
  8. Serve. Keep leftover popcorn covered with plastic wrap and in the fridge for up to three days.

Notes

QUICK TIP: If you don’t have popcorn kernels or don’t want to make popcorn at home, you can easily buy unsalted popcorn at the store and simply do the chocolate part at home.
