vegan Peanut butter and chocolate popcorn bars

These bars are so easy to make and you can just make loads and keep them in the freezer for summer treats.

Also I think peanut butter, chocolate and popcorn is such an iconic combination.

Peanut butter, dark chocolate and popcorn bars

What you’ll need:

¾ cup                                    coconut oil

2 TBS                                     light brown sugar (you can also use coconut sugar or liquid sweetener like agave)

1 cup                                    peanut butter

1 tsp                                     vanilla essence

2 heaped cups                   popped popcorn (I used IMBO popcorn kernels)

80 g                                      dark chocolate

Fine salt

Peanut butter, chocolate and popcorn bars

How to do it:

  1. In a baking tin, a smallish one (the one I used was a square cake tin 15 x 15 cm), line the bottom with nonstick paper and spray a little bit of non-stick spray around the sides.
  2. In a saucepan, melt the coconut oil with the sugar or sweetener. Keep stirring until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Add the peanut butter, a pinch of salt and vanilla essence and using a hand whisk, stir until it’s smooth.
  4. Pour the peanut butter mixture into the lined pan. Add as much popcorn as you like, pushing it down so it’s embedded in the mixture.
  5. Sprinkle with a little fine salt and place in the freezer for about and hour.
  6. After the hour, temper your chocolate. You can use a double boiler or melt in the microwave in 15 second increments.
  7. When your chocolate is smooth and has no lumps, drizzle over the popcorn mix.
  8. Place back in the freezer for another hour or so. Remove and cut into desired size pieces.
  9. These are best kept in the freezer. Perfect for summer.
