Salted Dark Chocolate Popcorn - You Totally Got This - Quick & Easy Recipe

Salted Dark Chocolate Popcorn

  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 6 serves 1x


Be warned. This super easy sweet and salty treat is totally addictive and so easy to make it’s dangerous.


  • ¼ cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 100g dark chocolate 85% cacao or above (dairy free)
  • Sea salt


  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the popcorn kernels, cover the pot, and cook until popped, shaking occasionally for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the pot from heat.
  • While the popcorn is cooking, use your hands to break the chocolate into small pieces and transfer to a microwave proof jug or bowl. Heat the chocolate on high for one minute and stir. Repeat in 10 second bursts until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Pour the chocolate over the popcorn and stir until the popcorn is coated.
  • Finish by sprinkling liberally with salt. Give the popcorn another big mix.
  • Leave in the bowl in a cool dry place for 30 minutes or until the chocolate has set. Store in an airtight container.


If you want to make this easy recipe even easier, use an air popper to cook the popcorn or start with a bag of air popped popcorn from the supermarket. Plus, did you know you can pop popcorn in the microwave? You can! Find out how to do it here.
