Mmm! Chocolate popcorn! Unless you have an obsession with chocolate it might not sound very appetizing. But when I 1st tried it I actually liked it! Here is the recipe:

6 cups popped popcorn
2 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoons milk

Melt the margarine in a saucepan on low heat. Stir in corn syrup, cocoa, and milk. Stir until blended and bubbly. Pour over popped popcorn. Stir to coat. Let it cool, then enjoy! It might help to put it in the freezer for a while too!

Would this work if chocolate syrup was substituted for powder?

EDIT: Yep, and if you're using chocolate syrup you can leave out corn syrup. *did some experimenting*

I tried it w/o the corn syrup and put on chocolate syrup. I didn't think it dried very fast. But I do think it tastes better. So here is the substitute recipe:

6 cups popped popcorn
2 tablespoons margarine
1 tablespoons milk
Chocolate Syrup

Melt the margarine in a saucepan on low heat. Stir the milk and syrup. Blend until it is all bubbly! Pour over popped popcorn. Stir to coat. Let it cool, then enjoy! It might help to put it in the freezer for a while too!

My mom suggested that you might also try baking it til it's toasty as opposed to freezing it, but I haven't tried it yet.

I used to make white chocolate popcorn for one of the chocolate shops I've worked at. Wonderful stuff!

Roast some almonds and pecans (or whatever nuts are your favourites) in the oven --- takes 10-15 mins at 375, with the nuts spread out on a cookie sheet. Stir them around every 2-3 mins, so none get overcooked. You'll know they're done when their flavour and texture start to change (they get crunchy). Allow to cool.

Make popcorn --- plain, not salted! Allow to cool.

We made our own peanut brittle at the shop as well, and added broken bits of that into the mixture as well. You could also use bits of pretzels (chocolate dipped pretzels are AWESOME) or dried apricots or cranberries.

Mix the nuts, popcorn, and other munchies together in a LARGE bowl.

Melt some white chocolate (or you could use milk or dark, if you prefer) over a double boiler.

Pour chocolate over the mixture. With a large wooden spoon or one of those flexible plastic pastry scrapers, stir everything around until it's all coated in chocolate, and then spread it all out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (or wax paper if you can't find parchment) to cool.

Sorry if these directions are a little vague in terms of quantity. I'm used to making this stuff in commercial batches, about 10 lbs at a time --- and believe me, it takes a LOT of popcorn to make 10 lbs!
