Cranberry Popcorn Crunch Recipe

Tiny, tart, and crimson-hued, cranberries have a lot to boast about. Most importantly, though, are their powerful health benefits.

Cranberries are known to play a role in preventing urinary tract infections, reducing the risk of gum disease, and protecting against a range of other diseases and cancers. Need more convincing? Cranberries can potentially prevent ulcers, and they contain hippuric acid, which has natural antibiotic ingredients. We think it’s time to start popping at least a few cranberries per day into your diet. Check out one of our favorite recipes here.

    This fun, simple treat is a healthy choice for both kids and adults.


    • 10 cups

      lightly salted popcorn

    • 2 cups

      semi-sweet real chocolate chips (12 ounce bag)

    • 1 ½ cups

      dried cranberries


    • Spread popcorn out on a large rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle evenly with 1/2 of the dried cranberries.

    • Melt the chocolate chips by either the stovetop or microwave. 

    • Once chocolate is fully melted, transfer to a large heavy duty freezer bag that has been opened and set into a small bowl for support. Seal bag and carefully snip off a small part of one corner with scissors. Working quickly, squeeze chocolate over popcorn and cranberries. 

    • Sprinkle remaining 1/2 of dried cranberries on the warm chocolate and popcorn. 

    • Let cool and chocolate will harden. Break into large or small chunks and store in an airtight container or sealed bag for up to two days.
