For the Love of Chocolate (Chocolate Popcorn)

Difficulty: Easy

Recipe Ingredients:

1/3 cup popping corn
1 Tablespoon popping oil
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup light or dark corn syrup
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cooking Instructions:

Put popping oil and popping corn into popper. Fasten lid securely. Use medium-high heat. Popping should start in about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat when popping almost stops.

In a saucepan over medium/high heat, heat the sugar, corn syrup, and butter. Stir constantly; bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips and vanilla. Continue to stir until chips melt. Pour chocolate mixture into the Sweet & Easy over the popcorn, close lid, and stir to coat well.

Pour mixture into a large baking pan. Bake for 1 hour at 200 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring occasionally. Cool and separate on parchment paper. Store in tightly covered containers.
