chocolate-coated popcorn

Sweet & salty gets me eveeeerytime. I love pakkorn, and I love chocolate. I also happen to love chocolate-coated popcorn! This super simple "recipe" is done within 10 minutes and is a real party-pleaser.

1 cup popcorn kernels
1 tbs canola oil
2 tbs butter
Salt to taste
2 oz semi-sweet chocolate (or mix of chocolate of choice)

1. If you are using microwave popcorn, pop popcorn and skip all the way to 3. If not, pour the canola oil in a large nonstick pot. Place 3 kernels on the bottom and cook on med-high covered until all kernels pop.

2. Once kernels pop, turn heat off, add 1 cup of kernels, top with salt & butter. Cover and count to 30. Return to med-high heat until fully popped. Remove from pot.

3. Bring a small pot of water to a simmer. 

4. Place an oven-proof bowl on pot and add chopped chocolate.

5. Continue to stir chocolate to melt evenly until smooth.

6. Put chocolate in a small ziploc bag, cut tip of a corner and squeeze to drizzle over popcorn. Stir to coat.

7. Put chocolate-coated popcorn in fridge for 10 minutes to harden before enjoying (or risk chocolatey sticky fingers)!
