DOUBLE DRIZZLE KETTLE CORN

¼ cup vegetable oil

¾ cup popcorn kernels

3 tablespoons sugar

1 ½ teaspoons Kosher salt

Parchment paper

½ cup bittersweet chocolate chips

½ cup white chocolate chips

In a large pot or stock pot with a lid, heat the vegetable oil over medium high heat. Add the popcorn. When the oil begins to hiss, sprinkle the sugar over the kernels. Cover with the lid.

When the popping starts, hold the lid with a pot holder and shake the pot over the heat until the popping begins to slow down. It goes from popped to burnt very quickly.

Remove from the heat; toss with the salt.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Spread the popcorn out onto the pans, being careful not to overlap the popped kernels.

Melt the chocolate separately in a heat-proof bowl over a double boiler. Stir frequently and keep the heat low because the chocolate will burn easily.

Dip a fork in the chocolate and drizzle it over the popcorn. Do the same with the white chocolate. Allow to set until dry. Break into pieces and store.

*For those who don't want to make this stovetop version,

This could be a good "Black Swam" themed Oscar food with the white and dark chocolate!

I've never made popcorn on the stove, but I did buy some popcorn kernels a few months ago to give it a shot. Maybe I'll get brave this weekend!

They say that stove-top popcorn stays fresher than microwave popcorn when kept in an airtight container.

I think I'll try this recipe too!
