from A Cozy Kitchen
My dad always gets tons of flavored popcorn from his clients for Christmas, so for that reason fancy popcorn has a Christmas-y feeling to it. The chocolate covered popcorn is always my favorite, and it is so easy to make. I combined this with a batch of caramel popcorn to take to a party and it was a hit. This stuff is seriously addictive.
1 cup popcorn kernels (unpopped)
2 Tbsp butter
12 oz (350 g) chocolate
salt to taste
Make popcorn using a pot, or whirly pop or air pop machine.
Using a double boiler (or a glass bowl over boiling water) mix together the butter, chocolate, and milk. Stir until melted and smooth.
Pour the chocolate over the popcorn and stir with a wooden spoon until popcorn is fairly evenly covered, then spread out on a baking sheet or some waxed paper and sprinkle with salt.
Let cool for 3-4 hours for the chocolate to harden (can also put in the fridge or freezer to speed cooling process)
