This is a simple recipe, as you only need 3 ingredients- popcorn, salt, and chocolate. It also looks slightly fancy, so you can bring it as a dessert-snack to a party or use it as a casual movie munchie.

Step 1: What You'll Need

-1/3 cup popcorn kernels

- Roughly 1/2 cup chocolate chips/ chocolate chunks

- Big pinch salt

- Butter (optional)

- Assorted toppings (Optional)

Btw these are my measurements, feel free to customize or change the recipe if you want.

Step 2: Pop and Salt Popcorn

You can use a bag of microwave popcorn if you want, and obviously you won't have to salt or butter, but I used an air-popped popper, so salt and butter it is!

Step 3: Melt Chocolate

You can put it in the microwave, put it into a plastic baggie and put the plastic baggie into hot (not boiling) water, or whatever way you like to melt chocolate. It just has to be melted enough to drizzle relatively easily.

Step 4: Drizzle Popcorn

You'll want to spread out the popcorn on a flat surface- I used a baking pan, but you can use a cutting board, sheet of metal, whatever, as long as it can get chocolatey. Once you melt your chocolate, you take a spoon and drizzle the melted chocolate onto the popcorn, stirring with the spoon to get even-ish coverage. You can put as much chocolate on as you want.

Step 5: Top the Pop! (corn)

If you're going to top the popcorn, you can customize like crazy-do whatever toppings you want! Be creative! Do M&Ms, Skittles, peanut butter, sprinkles, anything! Once you've done with this, you can put it into your fridge to harden the chocolate.

Step 6: Present!

Now that you have it, you can present it however you want! In little bags, in a big bowl, etc. I hope you enjoy the popcorn, and thanks for viewing my Instructable!
