I eat this popcorn as I type this post. Fistfuls.

Just recently popcorn has become a really BIG hit with me. Past few years I kinda gave up on it. No gnarly breakup or anything, I simply had no craving for it. Well that has changed my friends.

Might have something to do with the fact that now I pop it stove top in oil. The paper bag microwave version is great for fat-free flair, but popping in oil adds so much flavor. Oh boy!

This sweet & crunchy treat is perfect for your sweet Valentine…or for any time at all.

Happy Valentine's Day! MarlaMeridith.com

If you love sweeter popcorn you can try my Maple Pumpkin Spice Popcorn and for savory/salty cravings try Lemon Pepper Popcorn.

I bet if you serve this to your sweetheart they will be smitten with you this Valentine’s Day. This treat is not sugary and will not turn your sweetie into a sugar crashin’ fool.

Pop this corn in sunflower or unrefined coconut oil.

Toss with some toasted coconut flake, chocolate chips sea salt and vanilla stevia drops.

Some happy crunch I tell ya! Make sure you get some popcorn, coconut and chocolate in every bite.

    I LOVE popcorn . . . and my new addiction is using coconut oil to drizzle over top. Yum. I can only imagine how great adding a bit of chocolate would be!!

    We got so much popcorn for Christmas from my husbands’ parents – so we can have cozy movie date nights every weekend, but I need something more than the plain old butter and salt – this is fantastic Marla! I’m a choco/coconut fiend and the maple pumpkin spice version – umm, hello I’m a goner!!

    About 3 yrs ago I posted chocolate coconut oil popcorn. Hideous photos but popcorn sprayed with coconut oil cooking spray and doused in vegan chocolate protein powder and choc chips. I dont eat too much protein powder anymore but that popcorn was like candy. I love the looks of yours!

    I love popcorn popped in coconut oil. My husband says he doesn’t feel the need to pour melted butter on top of it either. Thanks for the add-ins ideas.

    Love this post! Looks so inviting!

    We pop popcorn at least 2 times a week around here. Always on the stovetop with oil. Everybody loves it with a mist of good olive oil (I buy the refillable sprayer and add my own oil to avoid preservatives) and salt. I love it with cracked pepper and nutritional yeast too and a little extra olive oil.

    xo, Andrea
