OMG! I think I'm in chocolate heaven right now! If you like sweet and salty - this is for you! This stuff is great! 12 cups of popcorn is basically 2 bags of microwave popcorn and I used 2 cups of salted peanuts which was plenty and amounts to a small can. I used a bag of Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate chips (sorry Nestle) because I didn't want this to be overly sweet especially since it had light corn syrup. I used a large foil roasting pan for this so I could just toss it after I was done. Easy clean up!

It was OK. A change from caramel corn or peanut butter popcorn...but I would definately prefer the other flavors over this. My kids didn't even like it that much.

Wonderful! Great for those who love Chocolate and salt together. Make sure to remove the unpopped kernals before adding all the chocolate so you don't hurt yourself.

Yum!! The first batch I made, I misread the ingredient list and used 1/4 pound of butter...instead of 1/4 c! So it was a little greasy since it was twice the amount needed. Second batch was perfect and yummmmy! I think this could be called PMS Popcorn...the perfect mix of chocolate/salt/crunch! :)

Just like carmel popcorn - only chocolate flavored. I also found it to be chewy. It's a tasty treat!

Yummy! I used the Toll House Chocolate Peanut Butter Chips on my second batch... it was even better!

This popcorn was extremely easy to make. I wanted to make a double batch, but only had 1 package of milk chocolate chips on hand. I improvised and made my second batch with a bag of butterscotch morsels that I had. I mixed the chocolate and butterscotch popcorn in one bowl when it was finished baking for a colorful and very tasty treat. This was a nice change from the standard caramel corn.

This was really easy and delicious! The peanuts were a great addition. I used two bags of tender white microwave popcorn and baked it in two glass Pyrex dishes. I made this for my mom's retirement party (served in small dishes alongside party mix) and got tons of compliments. Definitely a keeper!
