I love freshly made popcorn. There are many variations and one I particularly enjoy is this salted chocolate version. I make it so the chocolate can be tasted but the popcorn is not thickly coated. You could add more chocolate bits for a greater chocolate hit .



Bowl of chocolate popcorn

Preparation Time 5 minutes
Cooking Time 5 minutes
Makes 4 cups.

Ingredients
1 tablespoon oil
3 tablespoons popping corn
2 tablespoons dark chocolate bits
teaspoon salt

Method
Pour oil into a large saucepan and heat over medium heat.
When oil is hot, drop in a corn kernel. When it pops the oil is hot enough.
Add rest of corn kernels



Ingredients

Put on lid.
Gently shake saucepan side to side to spread the kernels
Holding lid on shake the saucepan every 30 seconds.
When popping ceases, remove saucepan from the heat..



Freshly popped corn

Add dark chocolate bits and salt straight away while saucepan is hot.
Stir chocolate bits and salt through the popcorn.
There should be enough heat to melt the bits but if there isn't, carefully return the saucepan to a very low heat for a few seconds and stir constantly so the chocolate melts but doesn't burn.



Freshly popped corn

Tip popcorn into a large bowl or divide between smaller bowls to serve.

I like it! A question... I am too afraid to pop my own with hot oil. I use a microwave. How could I make this recipe using a microwave? Thank you!
I haven't tried this out because I don't have chocolate chips in the pantry at the moment but I think it would work. Put the chocolate chips in a metal bowl that will conduct heat well. The bowl needs to be big enough for the popped popcorn. Put this bowl over a container of very hot water to melt the chocolate bits. Stir gently to aid melting process. Once the bits are melted, add the popcorn and stir to distribute the melted chocolate. Sprinkle the salt on top and stir gently. You may need to do the popcorn in 2 or 3 batches and you might need more than the 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips suggested in the recipe. Hope this works.
What if I popped popcorn in the microwave. Set aside. Melt chocolate chips in microwave. Pour melted chocolate over popped popcorn. Sprinkle with salt. Would this be good?
That should work well, just as long as the chocolate doesn't get scorched.
