Chocolate Covered Popcorn. Hmmm. I have to admit when I first considered this combination for today’s Chocolate Covered Monday, I was a little skeptical. Here’s how to make your own Chocolate Covered Popcorn.

What you’ll need: Plate covered in wax paper, popcorn (w/o butter or salt), Chocolate (any type is fine – I prefer Dark Chocolate)

Melt Chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds. Stir. Nuke again until melted. Be careful to not overheat or the Chocolate will burn and crystalize very quickly.

Place on piece of popcorn in the Chocolate. Cover completely using a spoon and lift out with a fork so the excess Chocolate can drain from the popcorn. completely using a spoon and lift out with a fork so the excess Chocolate can drain from the popcorn.

Place on wax paper. Freeze for 10 minutes or until the Chocolate is set.

Voila! Done! You’re very own Chocolate Covered Popcorn in a matter of minutes. While it’s not as good as Harry & David’s Moose Munch, it’s still pretty tasty in my opinion. Besides, it’s pretty healthy for you since it’s unbuttered and salted popcorn covered in Dark Chocolate.

Yum!
