  • Place your popcorn in a large roasting pan.
  • Now in a large saucepan combine your butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup.
  • Over medium-high heat bring this mixture to a boil. Keep it at a boil for about 5 minutes.
  • Now remove it from the heat and stir in the chocolate, vanilla salt and vanilla.
