Naughty Popcorn

Having a child with diabetes sets a natural break on the amount of sweets we got in our cupboards.
This house is a "Haribo" free zone (Candy free!).

That doesn't mean we don't like a bit of a treat.
So here is some pimped popcorn.
Goes well with a good DVD on a rainy afternoon.

Antony Worrall Thompson has done quite a few good cookbooks for diabetics. And this recipe has been pimped from one of his books.

Naughty Popcorn

  • 1/4 cup (50 gr) Popcorn
  • 25 gr Dark high quality chocolate, I choose a dairy free version.
  • 1 tbsp Honey or "Sweet Freedom" syrup
  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds
Put 1 tsp coconut oil into a wok or large pan. Put on high heat
Add popcorn - lid on and get popping. Shake the wok regularly, not to get black popcorn!
After 3- 5 min when all corns has popped. Turn of the heat.
Now add chocolate, honey and sesame seeds. lid on again and give it a good shaking.
Let the heat of the popcorn do the work. Pour into portion glasses and enjoy!

If you are not in the mood for sweet popcorn, try adding some vanilla salt (pure vanilla powder and salt),
NOT vanilla sugar! That is so good too!
