The quest for eternal youth and beauty can really take a toll. How can one be expected to stay up all night chasing brats around Salem when you haven’t done a lick of cardio in more than 300 years?

If you find yourself in need of a snack, grab a bit of this Witch Fuel. The popcorn and nuts will give you the protein and carbs you need, and the dark chocolate will give you a zip of caffeine, making this the perfect snack for a witch on the go.

Serves: 12
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Witch Fuel Popcorn Ingredients

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
About 1 cup unpopped popcorn kernels (enough to make 7 quarts popcorn)
Salt, to taste
1 cup salted roasted cashews
1½ cups craisins (dried cranberries)
1 cup dark chocolate chips

Witch Fuel Popcorn Directions

1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large wok or saucepan over medium heat.

2. While the oil is heating, place 3 unpopped kernels of corn in the pot and cover with a lid.

3. When the kernels pop, add the rest of the popcorn kernels, place the lid back on top, and remove from the heat.

4. Holding the lid tight, gently shake the pot for about 30 seconds.

5. When the kernels start to pop, return the pot to the stove over medium heat.

6. As the kernels continue to pop, lift the pot [occasionally?] and gently shake it to keep kernels from remaining stationary on the bottom and burning.

7. When you hear fewer than three pops per second, turn off the heat, remove the pan from the stove, and keep shaking until the popping stops completely.

8. Quickly pour the popped kernels into a large bowl and salt to taste.

9. Add the almonds, cashews, craisins, and dark chocolate and stir to mix well.
