If you are trying to lose pregnancy weight by following a healthy eating plan, you will love this sweet and salty treat.
Our Salted Dark Chocolate Popcorn recipe is perfect as an after dinner treat, and works well too as a mid-afternoon treat for the whole family.
Be sure to use some good quality dark chocolate for this recipe (at least 70% cocoa) as it is much better for you.
With just 25g of chocolate per serving, you can enjoy a sweet treat while still being focused on healthy eating.

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (or you could use olive oil or grapeseed oil)
  • 1/3 cup raw popcorn kernels
  • 100g good quality dark chocolate
  • ½ tsp salt (use more or less salt to taste)
  • Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan with a lid over medium heat.
  • When the oil is warm, pour in the kernels and place the lid on.
  • Shake to ensure the oil covers each kernel.
  • Once the popping has slowed right down, remove from the heat.
  • Place popcorn into a large baking tray (with sides) that is covered in baking paper.
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl on med/high, checking regularly so that it doesn’t burn.
  • It is ready when you can stir it and it is quite runny.
  • Pour chocolate over the popcorn and toss to coat.
  • Add the salt to taste and allow the chocolate to harden up on the popcorn at room temperature for around an hour.
  • If serving to kids it’s a great idea to place some cupcake liners into a muffin tray and fill those with popcorn before allowing it to come to room temperature.
  • Otherwise, once hardened slightly, place in a giant bowl to share, or 4 smaller bowls for some portion controlled fun.
