Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
  2. Mix together the sugar, corn syrup, butter, cocoa powder, and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat until the mixture is smooth and begins to simmer. Place the popcorn into a very large bowl, mix with the almonds, and then pour the chocolate syrup over the mixture. Stir until all the popcorn and almonds are coated. Spread the chocolate popcorn out onto several large baking sheets in a single layer.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until thoroughly dry, about 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes or so to dry all sides of the popped corn. Allow to cool on the sheet, then transfer into sealed containers.

I made the recipe as written. This was easy as can be to make and I like the almonds. Flavorwise, it was a nice light taste, one of those things that the more you eat the more you taste it. I might make extra coating as it did not make as much as I liked. I am planning to make this as gifts this Christmas.

This was so simple to put together and was perfectly coated and crunchy. I didn't think it had a strong chocolate flavor. I thought it was very good, but, my husband thought it was bitter - probably from the use of the cocoa powder.
