Popcorn is fast becoming a popular alternative to crisps as a healthy snack and here at ShoreBeing we’re big fans! One of our favourites is this crunchy, sweet chocolate orange popcorn, an amazing antidote for when those sweet cravings appear. I recently made ‘make your own popcorn’ kits an alternative to party bags at my sons birthday so people could enjoy it fresh when they got home.
We hope you love it as much as we do so get in touch on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
*Just a quick note on the popping corn itself – where possible buy organic popcorn as you avoid pesticides, insecticides – a whole bunch of nasties you don’t want to be eating.
Chocolate Orange Popcorn
2 tbsp organic popping corn*
1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp cacao/cocoa
1 tbsp raw honey
1/2 tsp orange extract
1. Heat 1/2 tbsp of the coconut oil in a saucepan on a gentle to medium heat, add the corn and put the lid on. Turn the heat off once the popping has stopped.
2. Whilst the corn is popping, place the rest of the ingredients in a large saucepan and warm until combined, stirring continuously.
3. Pour the popped corn into the cacao mix and coat thoroughly.
4. Spread the popcorn in one layer on a baking tray and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes for crunchy delicious popcorn!
