- 2 tsp vegetable oil
- 100g popping corn
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 65g dried cherries, chopped
Preheat the oven to 180C, fan oven 160C, gas mark 4. Put 14 paper bun cases into bun trays.
Heat the vegetable oil in a large heavy-based saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Add the popping corn, put the lid on and shake the pan to coat the kernels in the oil. Put the pan over a medium-high heat. The kernels will begin to pop, and when they do, carefully shake the pan occasionally.
When the popping subsides, remove from the heat. Cool for 5 minutes.
Whisk the egg whites and cocoa powder together in a large bowl. Stir in the cooled popcorn and dried cherries. Share the mixture between the bun cases, then bake for 8 to 10 minutes until set. Cool.
