  1. Melt the sugar, double cream and butter in a small saucepan over a medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Once the sugar has dissolved, increase the heat slightly and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the sea salt and remove the pan from the heat.
  2. Put the popcorn in a heatproof bowl and pour over the caramel. Stir well, so that all the popcorn is coated.
  3. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of just simmering water. Drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn and mix to combine.
  4. Line a tray with nonstick baking paper. Using a dessert spoon, put 12 small spoonfuls of the mixture onto the tray. Leave to set in the fridge for around 2 hours.

Tip: Whizz any leftover salted popcorn and use instead of breadcrumbs as a coating for chicken or fish.
