Servings 8 people
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1/4 cup hazelnuts chopped
- 1 candy cane chopped
Add 3 tbsp coconut oil to a large saucepan and bring to medium-high heat. Add 3-4 kernels, cover with a lid and wait for each to pop. Then add the remaining kernels and cover again. Let kernels pop, occasionally shaking the pot by gently moving it back and forth over the burner to encourage more popping. When you can no longer hear popping remove from heat and transfer popcorn to a bowl.
Add 2 inches water to a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Place a large glass bowl on top (making sure the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water). Break chocolate into chunks and add to glass bowl with 1 tsp coconut oil. Let melt, stirring occasionally until smooth.
Line a 7x7 baking dish with parchment paper. When chocolate is melted pour into the baking dish. Sprinkle with popcorn, chopped hazelnuts and candy cane. Freeze for 1 hour, or until solid.
Once solid, break chocolate into rough chunks to make "bark" like pieces.
Popcorn Candy Cane Bark will keep for one week. Store in the the fridge.
