Chocolate Orange Popcorn Bites by Joe Wicks

Chocolate Orange Popcorn Bites by Joe Wicks

"I really love making these with the kids. It’s a messy business with lots of melted chocolate on noses and plenty of spoon licking going on, but it’s so much fun."

"Beware – these bites are so incredibly moreish, you’ll probably end up eating the whole batch in one sitting."

Makes 12

Ingredients  

  • 45g salted popcorn
  • 30g wholegrain puffed rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
  • 80g runny honey
  • 75g smooth almond butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 50g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), chopped
  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tbsp chopped pistachios, to decorate (optional)

 

Method

Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper cases.
Place the popcorn and puffed rice into a large bowl.
Heat the honey in a small saucepan over a high heat until it starts to bubble. Reduce the heat to low and lit bubble away for 1-2 minutes until slightly darkened and fragrant.

Stir in the almond butter, coconut oil and chocolate until melted, then remove from the heat.

Set ½ teaspoon of the orange zest aside for garnish and stir the rest into the melted chocolate mixture.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the popcorn and puffed rice. Use two spoons to toss the mixture together until everything is coated.
Divide the mixture between the lined muffin cups. Sprinkle with the remaining orange zest and the pistachios, if using.

Leave to set at room temperature before eating. They will keep for about 2-3 days in an airtight container.
