InspirationMartha Stewart cocoa popcorn
To make this dairy-free, pop your popcorn in coconut oil on the stove or use a non-dairy spray or spread instead of butter.
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tsp cocoa powder
|Cocoa powder plus sugar.|
When your popcorn is done, drizzle on the butter while shaking the popcorn. Then gently shake-tap approximately one-fourth of the sugar-cocoa powder mixture over your buttered popcorn a few times, shake it up, add some more of the mixture, and keep repeating until it's generally covered.
VerdictThis made Sonny D a happy little boy!
This has a slightly bitter edge to it from the raw cocoa powder, so I would consider it something adults would generally appreciate more, but Sonny D seems to really like it. I've made it two times for him in the last couple of weeks. I like it just as it's written, but have thought that possibly using powdered sugar might disburse across the popped kernels better, similar popcorn salt's super-fine texture so it can get into every nook and cranny. Maybe we'll try that next time.
I'm more a fan of savory popcorn (I like brewer's yeast or nutritional yeast) but this is fun for some variation.
