2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons grey salt

1-ounce bittersweet chocolate


1/4 cup olive oil

  1. Heat a 10-inch saute pan over medium-high heat on stovetop. Tilt the pan away from you, then add the butter. As you tilt the pan back, the butter will begin to brown. Add salt into the butter, then pour it over the popcorn. Mix well. With a grater, zest the skin of 1 orange, about 2 tablespoons and the chocolate over the popcorn and mix.
