1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 cup popcorn kernels 

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips, melted over a double boiler 

1 bag candy-coated chocolate candies, such as M&M's (about 2 ounces)

1 box nonpareil candies (about 3 ounces)

1 box mint chocolate candies, such as Junior Mints (about 3.5 ounces)


  1. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the vegetable oil and popcorn kernels and cover the pot. Cook, shaking the pan every so often, until all the kernels have popped, about 5 minutes.
  2. Drizzle the popcorn with the melted butter and sprinkle with the salt; toss lightly. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the melted chocolate, then sprinkle the candy-coated chocolate candies, nonpareils and mint chocolate candies over the top. Let sit for 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
