Chocolate Covered Popcorn: National Popcorn Day

Today is National Popcorn Day. I saw lots of Chocolate Covered Popcorn at the Winter Fancy Food Show, and I'll be doing a round-up of some great brands soon. In the meantime, Chocolate Covered Popcorn is simple to make. You can use dark or white chocolate--or both-- to drizzle over your air-popped Popcorn. Key: Drizzle sparingly on the popcorn.


1. Make a bag of popcorn (buttered or plain) and pop it according to the directions. (airpopping!)
2 Put the popped popcorn into a large bowl or a flat baking pan (for more even distribution).
3 Melt some dark or white chocolate or both (in separate bowls)  in the top of a double boiler (or in the microwave).
4. Drizzle the chocolate on the popcorn. You can always add more chocolate, but you can't remove it, so use it sparingly.
