Chocolate Caramel Popcorn

This was another goodie that I made this Sunday in honor of the Oscar's - you can't watch a show about the movies without some popcorn!  Since this is a night where Hollywood gets dressed up - I decided to dress up my popcorn!  This isn't my favorite caramel corn recipe - I wish that this had a LOT more caramel, but it was still yummy!  This was an easier caramel corn recipe that was perfect since I decided to make it about an hour before we left for to go watch the Oscars.

Chocolate Caramel Popcorn
Recipe from The Craving Chronicles

1/2 cup popcorn kernels
15 unwrapped caramels
3 Tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 Tablespoon butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 Tablespoon butter

Pop popcorn in air-popper, place in large bowl.

Add caramels, heavy cream and 1/2 Tablespoon butter in saucepan over low heat.  Stir frequently until caramel is melted.   Drizzle popcorn with caramel mixture and stir to coat evenly.  Scatter popcorn on baking sheet lined with waxed paper.

Melt chocolate chips and remaining butter in double boiler.  Drizzle over popcorn.

Let sit at room temperature for at least an hour until chocolate hardens.
