Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar Popcorn

Welcome to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama + Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl to create awesome healthy recipes each week! This week’s theme is Free For All!

I almost didn’t have a recipe for Foodie Friday this week! :[ My life has been somewhat of a mess these past few weeks and I’m trying to hang onto some semblance of my sanity, so please bear with me. Simplicity makes my world go round these days, and it doesn’t get much easier than this recipe!

Remember my Vermont trip from last fall? It’s okay if you don’t. What you need to know about the trip is that although rainy, it’s absolutely gorgeous up there and I still wish we’d been able to go on that hike up Camel’s Hump Trail).

I also happened to acquire some fancy-schmancy olive oil and balsamic vinegar from Saratoga Olive Oil (more specifically, I got the Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar, Fused Whole Fruit Blood Orange Olive Oil, and Vermont Maple Balsamic Vinegar)!

I’ve been wanting to come up with recipes using all this deliciousness and finally made good on that earlier this year! I’ve also been using it as an ice cream topping. 😀 (For the record, this isn’t a sponsored post. I just wanted to share the love because this stuff is delicious. <3 )
