Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Popcorn

This is not so much a recipe but more of a serving suggestion. In our house a good movie isn’t complete without a snack. Our usual at home Friday night cinema snack normally consists of guacamole, hummus and lots of crunchy veggies or a huge bowl of cherries & a glass of red wine. However since I became pregnant the red wine has been shelved and only popcorn will do.

Ingredients –

1/3 of a cup of popcorn kernels

2-3 squares of good quality 90% dark choc

A good pinch of sea salt flakes

Method –

  1. Place your popcorn kernels in a heavy bottom pan and turn on to a medium heat (don’t forget to put the lid on)
  2. I don’t like to use oil in my popcorn which means I need to keep a close eye on the pan to make sure the kernels don’t burn or stick. To do this I take the pan off the heat every few minutes and shake the kernels around
  3. Once the popping sound stops it’s your cue to take your pan off the heat
  4. On a flat surface place a large sheet of greaseproof paper and tip out your popcorn to cool
  5. Over a gentle heat and in a bain- marie melt your chocolate
  6. Once melted use a spoon to drizzle your cooled corn with your chocolate – al la Jackson Pollock
  7. Sprinkle with salt while your choc is still wet and then leave to cool
  8. Enjoy with your movie of choice.
