Monday's Menu Highlight

Confession: I. love. candy. 

This fact, as you may guess, is pretty upsetting when it comes to eating healthy and lowering my cholesterol. I've been trying to find ways to satisfy my sweet tooth without making terrible choices. I found something that works pretty well for me, and I'm pretty obsessed with it right now.


But not just popcorn. Popcorn + Chocolate (because chocolate makes everything 100 times better, obviously).

So here's the deal. I use my small/medium sized pot and cover the bottom in olive oil. Then I pour enough popcorn kernels to almost cover the bottom; pop until the popping is about once every 5 seconds. Pour it in a bowl, add two tablespoons of mini chocolate chips and a little salt. The chocolate gets all melted and amazing... 
Seriously, I am in love with this combo. And it really does satisfy my sweet tooth without throwing my whole calorie-counting day into a tailspin.

Anyway, there you have it. My latest obsession. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love homemade popcorn. Even homemade caramel popcorn. It's super easy. All you do is use corn syrup, sugar, and popcorn. done!
