Raw Chocolate Popcorn Cakes
October 5, 2016
Popping your own popcorn is a really fun activity but it lacks chocolate, don’t you think?! Add some CHOC to your popcorn with these Raw Chocolate Popcorn Cakes.
- Prep: 25 mins
- Cooking Pan,
- Metal Whisk,
- Pan with lid,
- Standard Baking Cases
1If you have a pan with a glass lid then this is extra fun because you get to see all of the popping action but, whatever pan you choose, make sure that has a well fitting lid or your popcorn will be popping all over the kitchen!
2First make the popcorn: Put a large pan on a medium-high heat and add the cooking oil and popcorn kernels. Give the kernels a stir to coat them in the oil and then place the lid on the pan and wait for popping!
3When there has been no popping sounds for 20 seconds, turn off the heat and transfer the popcorn to a large mixing bowl.
4Now it’s time to make the chocolate… Melt the cacao butter gently in a bowl over a pan of water on a low heat.
5Once the cacao butter has melted add 3 tablespoons of cacao powder and sweeten with 5 tablespoons of Sweet Freedom. Add your vanilla bean extract and mix well with a balloon whisk.
6Remove from the heat and pour the chocolate mixture over the popped popcorn. Gently mix with a wooden spoon until all of the popcorn is coated in chocolate.
7Spoon the chocolatey popcorn into the baking cases and place them in the fridge for about 10 minutes to set (lick the spoon while you wait!). Now all that’s left to do is eat and enjoy!
