Used this with Carmel popcorn #57591. Awesome recipe.

Have not accomplished this successfully yet, but a comment may save some other's attempts. I used already popped corn, in a bag from Bed, Bath, and Beyond -- where 3 people stopped to tell me what wonderful popcorn it was ! (What I ate plain IS tasty !!) I used bittersweet chocolate bits, which sort of just clumped up after nuking. I asked the chef, who said be very attentive to the melting -- chips should retain their shape but be easily stirred to melted. I think bittersweet may act differently than milk chocolate. Second important thing to watch -- recipe says "CARAMEL" popped corn -- the BB&B was not. I believe the hard shell keeps the corn from becoming soggy. By the time my chocolate had hardened, the corn was no longer crisp. I am not giving up !! The Moose Munch website says Target carries it -- but not in MY hometown !! Next time I will use the specified ingredients BEFORE making any changes ! Thanks for your help, Luvs2Cook.
