sorry I've been a tad quiet on the blogging front lately. there's really been not that much happening, just life as usual, not that I'm complaining, I like calm and simple. I'm going to a 21st birthday this weekend with a 'thrift shop' theme, so i'll be donning a fur jacket and velvet slacks. i'll be sure to share a few snaps with you.
a spot of baking here this afternoon with a new recipe to try. though no need to turn the oven on for this one.
it's a nutty honey popcorn slice, based on this recipe by secret squirrel food.
popcorn is a go-to snack in our home. it's cheap, healthy and quick to prepare.
I pop my corn in a large saucepan with a lid. I add two dessert spoons of coconut oil to the pan and heat. I then pop in half a cup of corn over a medium/high heat and allow it to pop away until the popping slows right down. there's always a few kernels of un-popped corn but it yields over 8 cups of popped corn.
this slice made a delicious, guilt-free afternoon tea sweet treat.
4 cups of popcorn
1/2 cup nut butter or tahini
2 tablespoons honey
dark chocolate (optional)
mix the nut butter and honey in a large bowl. add the popcorn and stir to coat.
press into a square cake tin that has been lightly greased.
melt the dark chocolate and drizzle over the top.
place in the fridge to harden and slice into squares.
this slice has a lovely caramel flavour and it's hard to stop at just one piece.
have you had any success with new recipes?
