These yummy chocolate-coated popcorn treats are easy to put together and will be a real hit with the kids.

Line a square baking tin (20-30 cm) with baking paper.

1. Heat a splash of oil in a large saucepan and, when hot, stir in the popcorn. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook over medium-low heat, shaking the saucepan now and then, until all the kernels have popped.

2. Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate with the butter, golden syrup, ground cinnamon and salt in a bowl over a pot of simmering water. Stir to mix well.

3. Toss the popcorn with the melted chocolate mixture and tip into the prepared baking tin. Using the back of a spoon, press the mixture firmly into the tin. Chill for 1 hour to set.

4. Turn out onto a board and remove the paper. Melt the white chocolate and, using a teaspoon, drizzle the chocolate all over the top. Chill until set.

5. Using a large sharp serrated knife, cut into squares.
