black and white popcorn

popcorn4 copy
This is a super easy (and suuuuuuper addictive) substance treat that I quickly whipped up when I realized I only had a few days left to put together something small for all of the amazing  teachers in our lives. 
I thought I'd share in case you were in need of some ideas to handout to friends and neighbors.

Black and White Popcorn
makes about 5-6 cups of popcorn
I made a few batches so we had lots to share

-2 TBS coconut oil
-1 cup popcorn kernels
-6oz dark chocolate
-6oz white chocoalte
-kosher salt

Maybe you are fancy and have  popcorn popper--if so, follow the directions for that fancy machine, get your popcorn popped, and meet me in step two.

If you don't have a popcorn popper, begin here:

1. Add coconut oil to a LARGE stockpot with heat on medium. Add the kernels and give them a good shake in the pan so they are coated in oil. Put the lid on the pan, but leave it ajar so the steam can escape. After a few minutes your corn will start to POP!
Keep a close eye, er....ear on it, and when the popping slows down, take the pot off the heat so it doesn't burn.
2. Spread the popcorn out onto parchment paper.

3. Melt your white chocolate and dark chocolate using a double boiler, or microwaving in 30 second increments. 

4. Drizzle your popcorn with the white and dark chocolate.

5. Sprinkle with salt while the chocolate is still warm.

6. Let chocolate cool and set up. 

7. Package in a quick wrap of cellophane and string, or maybe you do much more adorable things and have your own adorable bags and labels and such.

8. Share with your friends.
