When snack time (aka the best time of the day) rolls around, these are the kind of thoughts that go through our mind.

  1. YESSSSSS finally an excuse to eat outside of meal time.
  2. Totally craving something salty right now.
  3. But ughhh I would kill for something sweet, too.
  4. And oh! Smoky. Definitely smoky.
  5. But I should probably try to get in a superfood, right?

We thought chocolate couldn’t get any better. We were wrong.

  • 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt, divided


  1. Place popcorn in a large bowl. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set both aside.

  4. Spread chocolate-covered popcorn onto lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining sea salt.
  5. Let sit at room temperature until chocolate has hardened, 45 minutes – 1 hour.

4. Salted Caramel Popcorn
