½ cup unpopped popcorn kernels
1¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
½ cup light corn syrup
½ cup butter (1 stick)
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup Ghirardelli 60% cocoa chips
2 tsp coconut oil, divided


  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Pop your popcorn kernels using an air popper or microwave.
  3. In a large microwavable bowl, combine brown sugar, condensed milk, corn syrup, butter and salt.
  4. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, then stir. Repeat this 2 more times.
  5. Add baking soda and stir.
  6. Pour caramel sauce over popcorn in a large bowl and mix it all together.
  7. Pour caramel popcorn onto two baking sheets lined with parchment paper and spread evenly.
  8. Place in preheated oven and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  10. Place white chocolate chips with 1 tsp coconut oil in a small microwavable bowl and dark chocolate with 1 tsp coconut oil in another. Microwave on high for 1 minute and stir. If chocolate is not melted, microwave for an additional 15 seconds and stir again. Do this until chocolate is melted completely.
  11. Using a spoon (or put each chocolate in a small ziplock and snip the corner with scissors) drizzle the chocolate over the top of all popcorn in a striped fashion. Allow to harden.
  12. Break into pieces and serve. Store in an air tight container for up to one week.
