Snickers Popcorn


This delicious snack is a huge winner with both grown-ups and kids. We’ve made it before, and we made it again (did we want to perfect the recipe?? Or did we simply want an excuse to eat it again?).

This is a great snack option, as it really hits that sweet spot but still offers some good nutrition. Popcorn itself is a great source of fibre which helps to keep you regular and regulate blood sugar spikes. Coconut oil and peanut butter both contain healthy fats which help to keep you feeling satisfied for longer. Peanut butter also provides a source of protein.  We’ve also included our Berry Choc Chunk which provides some chocolatey goodness and a good source of calcium.

 

This recipe makes enough for about 6 people. We recommend a serving size of about 2 cups per person (we thought this serving size was a good balance of being conscientious (it is a decadent treat after all) but also real… because let’s be honest, who only has a few pieces of popcorn and then stops?! When you’re in, you’re in!). 


Ingredients

1/2 cup peanut butter

Products

1/2 cup The Wholefood Pantry Maple Syrup

1 tbsp The Wholefood Pantry Coconut Oil 

2 heaped dessert spoons of Berry Choc Chunk

2/3 cup The Wholefood Pantry Popping Corn 


1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees.

2. Make the popcorn according to packet instructions and then place in a bowl.

3. Melt peanut butter on a gentle heat, then pour into a bowl along with maple syrup and melted coconut oil. Stir to combine.

4. Add the Berry Choc Chunk and stir through to combine and make the snickers sauce.

5. Pour the sauce over the popcorn and stir through to ensure all the popcorn  is covered. Pour out onto a baking tray and place on the bottom rack of the oven for 10 minutes.

6. Keep an eye on it as it can burn easily.

7. Remove from the oven and let cool and harden on the tray. Transfer into an airtight container...or eat all at once!
