Chocolate Popcorn

For those of you who are single this valentines day like I am you, you probably want some easy to munch chocolate treat but nothing too hard to make or too high in calories or designed for multiple people. The answer is Chocolate Popcorn.
You need
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
2oz chocolate
salt to taste
Mix ins to taste I frequently use things like craisins, almonds, caramel bits, mini marshmallows, ect

popped with mix ins
Put the 1/4 cup popcorn kernels into your hot air popcorn popper and pop them. While that is popping melt the 2oz of chocolate in a double boiler, metal bowl over pan of water, or microwave until just melted. Add the mix ins to the popped popcorn ( I used craisins and almonds in this example). Then drizzle the popcorn with the chocolate while stirring constantly. Make sure to pull from the way bottom to the top not just around and around. Keep stirring until fully coated and the chocolate has begun to set again. Add a shake or two of salt if desired. Somehow all popcorn needs a slight bit of salt to my taste.
