Chocolate Popcorn

This makes fantastic movie night munchies. It is not too sweet, but intensly chocolaty.

Chocolate Popcorn Mix

1-1/2 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup cocoa, sifted if lumpy
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Combine ingredients in a medium bowl. Store in a covered jar in the pantry for emergencies.

To prepare popcorn:

Melt 1/4 cup butter or hard margarine in the microwave. Stir in 1/4 cup chocolate popcorn mix. Drizzle over about 6 cups of popped popcorn in a large bowl. Toss to coat well.
