Popcorn & Quinoa Chocolate Clusters

This is one of the recipes which they turn out to be a complete surprise. I was planning something totally different and then I remember i had some popcorn in my cupboard so I spontaneously decided to add them on and the result is super crunchy and a bit chewy at the same time incredibly chocolately clusters! These are possibly the best movie snack or whenever you crave something sweet to munch on. They are ridiculously easy to make and they are store in the fridge for few weeks.

Ingredients:

80gr of good quality dark chocolate – I have used 2 bars of Goodio Pure Nacional
1/2 cup of quinoa puffs (if you can’t find them you can sub them for rice puffs)
1/2 cup of popcorns – I have used salty as I love the contrast between sweet and salty
12 dates pitted
2 tablespoons of goji berries (you can also use raisins)
2 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey
1/3 cup of walnuts (almonds will work as well)

Place the chocolate in a double boiler and let it melt gently on a low/ medium heat. Once melted add the maple syrup. While the chocolate is melting place the dates into a food processor and blitz until they become very small pieces. Roughly chop the walnuts.

Add the chopped dates and walnuts to the bowl with the melted chocolate. Also add in all the reaming ingredients, popcorn, quinoa puffs and goji berries. Give it a really good mis sp everything is coated in the chocolate.
Line a baking tray with some parchment paper and with a spatula spread the chocolate mixture until it’s evenly distributed. Place the tray in the freezer for 1/2 hour until the chocolate is solid. Break it down with your hands in generous size clusters. Enjoy! I store any leftovers in a jar in the fridge.
