Give Chex Mix the Santa boot this holiday season! Chocolate Mint Party Popcorn Mix is the new mix in town! Something the whole family will love! Thanks Lauren (a.k.a. @blissfullylively) for this delicious and festive creation. 


Ingredients:

1/3 cup popcorn kernels
3 tbsp coconut oil (to mix with cooked popcorn)
Sea salt to taste
1/2 bag dark chocolate morsels, melted (to be used to drizzle over popcorn)
1 tbsp coconut oil (to mix w/ chocolate)
1/2  cup of craisins
1/2 cup of peanuts
1/2 cup of pretzels
1/2 cup of dark chocolate morsels, melted (to be used to coat the Peanuts & craisins)
1/4 cup white chocolate, melted (to be used to coat the pretzels)  (vegan variety - or create your own)

Recipe:

  1. Add 2 Tbsp of coconut oil to pot on medium high heat, allow oil to melt.
  2. Add 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels to pot and cover, remove from heat for 30 seconds.
  3. Place pot back on heat allowing kernels to pop, once you hear the kernels begin to pop start gently shaking the covered pot.While doing this keep lid slightly agar allowing steam to release (this makes popcorn crispier).
  4. Pour into medium sized bowl and season with sea salt to taste.
  5. Add 1/2 bag of dark chocolate to small bowl and heat in microwave for 30 seconds 3 times string each time allowing chocolate to melt. After third time add in 1 tbsp of coconut oil and mix together.
  6. Lay popcorn out on to baking sheet. Take a spoon and drizzle the chocolate mixture over the popcorn (this is not a science just drizzle how ever much you would like).
  7. Allow chocolate to harden (wait 10-15 minutes).
  8. While chocolate is hardening on popcorn melt 1/2 cup of dark chocolate in same bowl as above.
  9. Once melted pour Peanuts and raisins into mixture. Make sure all are coated. Sift out and place on plate covered with parchment paper to harden.
  10. In a separate small bowl melt white chocolate using the method above.
  11. Once melted pour 1/2 cup of pretzels in to the white chocolate. Thoroughly coat pretzels, sift out and place on plate covered in parchment paper to harden.
  12. Once chocolate has hardened on popcorn, peanuts, pretzels & crasins mix all together in large bowl.
  13. Chop up 4 Mint Squares into bite sized pieces and top popcorn with pieces.
  14. Mix to combine.
  15. ENJOY!
