Recipe by wyojess
READY IN: 2hrs 30mins




  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  • Place the popped corn in the largest baking pan you have (might have to do it in 2 batches if you only have a 9x13). You need to be able to stir the popcorn!
  • Melt butter in a very large saucepan (see step 6).
  • Add brown sugar and corn syrup. Stirring CONSTANTLY, bring to a boil and boil 5 minute.
  • Add peanuts (if desired).
  • Add soda (will foam up, so be ready).
  • Pour caramel over popcorn and mix well.
  • Bake popcorn one hour, stirring every 10-15 minute.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely. You'll have to stir it every once in a while so it doesn't stick together.
  • Spray a cookie sheet with oil or cover with parchment paper.
  • Melt half of chocolate per package directions (you can melt more when you need it).
  • Dip popcorn pieces in chocolate and place chocolate-covered popcorn pieces individually on the cookie sheet so they can set up.
  • Popcorn can be stored at room temp or in the refrigerator. Just keep cool so it doesn't melt.
