Chocolate Popcorn


I ran across this recipe here.  It wasn't a bad little snackums, but it was missing something...maybe some brown sugar in the syrup.  A fun treat to make...who can resist chocolate covered popcorn?


Chocolate Popcorn

12 cups popped popcorn (2 bags microwave popcorn)
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup butter
12oz milk chocolate chips
12oz salted peanuts

Spread popcorn across baking sheets.  Top with salted peanuts.  In a saucepan combine corn syrup, and milk chocolate.  Cook, stirring constantly, until boils.  Spread over top of popcorn and nuts.  Stir to coat.  Bake at 300 for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring often.  Cool before breaking into pieces and packing away.
