Chocolate popcorn

Movie time is 4:00 at our house. This is one of our favorite movie time snacks as of late- chocolate popcorn. I pop the popcorn in a big pot on the stove, then pour the chocolate sauce over the top. We eat it with big spoons since it pretty sticky. Corryn almost managed to make it her first food a couple of days ago when she rather adeptly reached out, grabbed a handful and had it to her mouth faster than I could intervene. She knew she needed to get it to her mouth, but wasn't sure what to do from there, giving me time to act before it made actually into her mouth. :)

Anyway, chocolate popcorn:
1/2 -2/3 cup unpopped popcorn

Approx 1/3 c Blackstrap molassess
Some margarine (no butter due to the Corryn's dairy issues)
Cocoa powder

Heat together- I do it in the microwave for speed.

It's really good without being overly sweet plus has iron, calcium and potassium from the molassess, which alleviates some of the guilt :)
