Chocolate Covered Popcorn Recipe
1/4 cups popcorn kernels
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
5 ounces red melting chocolate
5 ounces green melting chocolate
Pop kernels with vegetable oil in a popcorn popper or on the stove top. This should yield about 4-6 cups of popped popcorn. Transfer hot popcorn evenly onto two cookie sheets lined with wax paper in a single layer. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
Melt the red and green melting chocolate in two separate bowls per package directions. Using a spoon for each color, drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn. Once the chocolate is set break the popcorn into pieces.
1) If you don’t want to pop your own popcorn, use plain popped lightly salted popcorn.
2) Use any colored chocolate for any holiday you are celebrating.
