1/2 cup unsalted butter

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup corn syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking soda

3/4 cup milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips



Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Pour popcorn and kettle chips into an extra large mixing bowl and set aside. Melt butter in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup and bring to a boil stirring constantly. Allow to boil 5 minutes without stirring then immediately remove from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda until well combined . Immediately drizzle mixture over popcorn and toss to evenly coat. Spread onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone liner and bake in preheated oven 1 hour, removing from oven and tossing every 15 minutes. If using sprinkles immediately add sprinkles once the 1 hour is up. Cool at room temperature. Place chocolate chips in a small mixing bowl. Heat in microwave on 50% power in 30 second increments, stirring well between intervals, until melted and smooth. Transfer to a small resealable bag, seal bag and cut a tiny tip from the corner and drizzle chocolate evenly over popcorn. Allow chocolate to set at room temperature or in refrigerator, then break popcorn into pieces. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
