Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Popcorn

Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Popcorn

After an indulgent holiday season (a.k.a one too many Christmas cookies…) Ian and I dove into an eight week fitness challenge. Sadly, it runs over Valentine’s Day and the typical box of chocolates after a candlelight dinner will have to be skipped.

However, I read between the challenge guidelines and noticed that two things are approved in moderation – popcorn and dark chocolate. So I give you a health conscious Valentine’s Day dessert option – Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Popcorn! It’s the perfect combination, sweet and salty. Plus, you won’t have to feel guilty afterwards. I would say this is a major win, win!
