Makes 10 Servings
Pop the corn and remove the unpopped kernels. Place into a large mixing bowl. Mix the Maltitol, syrup and vinegar together in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil on medium heat, stirring constantly to a temperature of 240°(soft ball). Immediately turn off heat and add the butter. Stir until blended and then pour over the popcorn. Using a long handled wooden spoon, quickly toss the popcorn with the hot mixture. You have to work fast before the candy sets up and be careful not to touch the hot mixture.
After the corn is well coated, spread the popcorn on a buttered baking pan and allow to completely cool.Separate the popcorn into pieces or clumps using your hands coated in a little butter.
Take the ChocoPerfection bars and break into several pieces. Place in a microwave safe glass dish and microwave until melted, heating for 30 second increments at a time and stirring when necessary. When chocolate is completely melted, using a spoon, drizzle chocolate over the popcorn and allow to cool.
