  2. Into a small saucepan on low heat, place all ingredients except for the popcorn
  3. Use a whisk to stir the ingredients until melted and well combined. Remove from heat
  4. In a big bowl, place popcorn and pour over the chocolate mixture. Combine really well (stir for at least two minutes)
  5. Spread equal amounts of the coated popcorn onto baking trays lined with baking paper. Make sure it is only an even single layer
