  • 4 tablespoons tablespoons butter, plus more for baking sheet
  • 10 cups plain unsalted popped popcorn (from 1/2 cup kernels or a 3.3-ounce bag microwave popcorn)
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Butter a large rimmed baking sheet, set aside. Place popcorn in a large bowl and said aside.
  • In a small saucepan, bring butter, sugar, and 2 tablespoons water to a boil, stirring constantly. Working quickly, drizzle popcorn with sugar syrup, and toss to coat.
  • Spread popcorn evenly on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Bake, tossing occasionally, until golden and shiny, about 40 minutes. Transfer hot popcorn to parchment-paper-lined baking sheet; let cool.
  • Once popcorn is cooled, melt the chocolate. Place semi sweet chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on half power for 2 minutes. Stir, then return to microwave and heat for another 20 seconds at a time, stirring between each, until smooth. Drizzle over popcorn. Repeat process with white chocolate. Allow to cool until chocolate is hardened. Store in airtight container.
