Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup brown rice syrup
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 4 cups LesserEvil Dark Chocolate Himalayan Pink Salt Popcorn
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips + 1 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  • Line an 8x8 dish with parchment paper.
  • In a food processor, pulse 1 cup of popcorn at a time until it is broken down into smaller pieces.
  • Once all 4 cups are complete, add them to a large mixing bowl.
  • Combine the coconut oil and brown rice syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a slow boil and let it boil for 1 minute (it should get a little thicker).
  • Remove from heat and let stand for one minute. You don’t want to let it sit for any longer because the mixture will start to thicken and harden!
  • Pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir until all of the popcorn is evenly coated.
  • Scoop the popcorn mixture into the lined baking dish and evenly distribute. 
  • Use another piece of parchment paper and place it on the top so you can press down on the mixture to make sure it is packed in. The harder you press down on it and the more packed in it is, the less crumbly they will be!
  • In a microwave safe dish, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in increments of 30 seconds, until the chocolate is melted.
  • Using a spoon, drizzle the chocolate over the top of the popcorn mixture.
  • Place the whole dish into the fridge and let it cool for 45 minutes – 1 hour. 
  • When ready to serve, remove the dish from the fridge and let them sit until they reach room temperature. Then slice into squares and serve!
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge
