Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn Bark

With summer in full swing and the multiple parties and holidays coming up, I have been working on a quick and delicious treat that can be perfect for any occasion. One of my favorite snacks is popcorn and I love the many ways you can snack on it! In trail mix, with different seasonings, or as a delicious chocolate bark treat! This leads me to sharing one of my favorite recipes that is full of protein, fiber and sweetness. Dark chocolate chips+ sea salt and pepper popcorn = sweet & savory goodness. AND the peanut butter makes it twice as good!

YUM. 

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn Bark

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup popcorn (I used SkinnyPop Sea Salt and Pepper flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower kernals 
  • 1 tablespoon Sea Salt

Directions:

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine dark chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave for 1 minute, stirring at 30 seconds.
  2. On a nonstick paper (parchment paper) pour melted chocolate mixture. Evenly spread out for a 1/4 inch thickness.
  3. In a clean microwave safe bowl, add peanut butter. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Place dollops of melted peanut butter on top of melted chocolate. With a knife, slowly swirl the chocolate and peanut together, making a cool design.
  4. Sprinkle popcorn and sunflower kernals on top and place in freezer for 20-30 minutes or until solid.
  5. Break into pieces and enjoy immediately!
