National Popcorn Day!
Popcorn is one of my all-time favorite party foods. There is just so much you can do with it. I like to season it with different spices or even herbs. Rosemary-Sea Salt is one of my favorite combos. For something over the top and decadent, try this one. White and dark chocolate. Salt. Popcorn. What's not to love?

DOUBLE DRIZZLE KETTLE CORN
¼ cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup popcorn kernels
3 tablespoons sugar
1 ½ teaspoons Kosher salt
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. Hold the lid down with a potholder and shake the pot over the heat until the popping begins. Shake vigorously 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 kernels.
Melt the chocolate separately in a heatproof 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 to serve. You can store it in an airtight container in a cool spot for up to a week.
