Almond Joy Flavored Popcorn

Sometimes I need a little evening pick me up. This almond joy inspired popcorn is a fairly healthy recipe that does just that. This light light as air snack is hardly over the top, as the popcorn recipe produces subtle flavors of coconut and chocolate. Which foods do you look to when you crave a healthy treat?

Ingredients for almond joy popcorn:
*Yields about 3 cups of popcorn
1 tbsp of virgin coconut oil, melted
1/8 of a cup of popcorn kernels
1 tsp of coconut butter, melted (I used Earth Balance’s coconut spread)
1 1/2 tsp of coconut sugar
1 tbsp of melted vegan dark chocolate
1 tbsp of cacao nibs
1/8 cup of slivered almonds
Method: 
1- Melt the coconut oil in a large frying pan or sauce pan. When the coconut oil is melted add 2-3 kernels to the pan.
2- When the kernels begin to pop, add the rest of the kernels. Keep the pan moving as the popcorn pops.
3- When the corn is done popping, take it off the heat. Pour it into a medium sized bowl and pour over the melted coconut butter. Then sprinkle the coconut sugar on the popcorn and stir.
4- Drizzle the melted chocolate on and spread the slivered almonds and cacao nibs over the top. Then stir once more and serve.

  1. Wow. Yum. Where do you think of this stuff? I love your taste so much. We should have a virtual meal together! 🙂 Or virtual dessert, since we’re both sweet tooths. I still want to make those coconut bars…

  2. Hi! I really enjoy your blog. I’ve nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award. Check out the link http://greenbeekitchen.wordpress.com/2013/04/14/versatile-blogger-nomination/
    Congratulations 🙂

  3. This sounds amazing. I’ve got all the ingredients except coconut butter – what is that? Is it like a nut butter? Might I substitute almond or peanut or hazelnut butter?
    Can’t wait to try this!

    • It is like a coconut flavored butter. I used earth balance coconut spread, if you don’t have that maybe you could sub coconut oil or butter with a bit of coconut extract. I bet it’d be good with the nut butter too – you can’t go wrong with coconut, almonds, and chocolate 🙂 Let me know how it turns out if you make it!
