Weekends are made for snacking (in my opinion)!  What better way to come together than over mouthfuls of delicious, homemade kettle corn, that is also wayyyy healthy…er than any microwave popped bag you’ve ever had.  This popcorn is so easy you’ll be asking yourself why you’ve never made your own before.  Great as a pre-going out snack to share with friends over cocktails, perfect for a movie night, and even better as a “just because” treat!  The sugar gives the outside layer of the popcorn an addictive crunch that’ll have you scooping handfuls into your mouth.  The coconut oil adds a hint of flavor that will have guests wondering what the secret ingredient is and the chocolate and sea salt are just no brainers!  It is also a fun and easy recipe that is great for kids in the kitchen, they can listen and count the pops as you shake the pot!

Kettle Corn

5 tablespoons sugar

4 tablespoons coconut oil

2/3 cups popcorn kernels

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, melted (if too thick add some coconut oil to thin)

sea salt

In a large, heavy bottomed pot, combine sugar and oil over medium heat.  Stir until oil begins to melt.  Add kernels and stir for about 3 minutes.  Cover the pot with a lid.  Using a towel or oven mitts, begin to shake and swirl the pot over the heat.  You must constantly be moving the kernels making sure not to burn the sugar or the kernels.  After a few minutes you will begin to hear sizzling and then popping!  Keep shaking until the popping starts to slow.  Remove from heat.  Lay hot popcorn out onto cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Drizzle melted chocolate all over and sprinkle with sea salt.  Refrigerate for a few minutes to harden the chocolate.  Enjoy!
