Chocolate Caramel Popcorn Bark

This is such a yummy treat!  It's a fun snack for company or just a day you feel like something sweet.  My kids and I loved this little treat.  It is crispy crunchy and chocolatey...mmmmm!

1/2 c. coarsely chopped almonds
6 c. plain popped popcorn
1/2 c. packed brown sugaar
4 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp light corn syrup
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 lb. semi-sweet chocolate

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Spread the almonds on a cookie sheet and bake 5-7 minutes until fragrant.  Cool.  Reduce temp to 250.  Spread the popcorn and almonds together on the baking sheet.

In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup.  Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.  Remove from heat and add the baking soda and vanilla.  Pour over the popcorn and almonds, stirring to coat.  Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.  Let cool, then crush slightly.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.  Melt the chocolate and pour onto the foil-lined pan.  Top with the popcorn mixture, lightly pressing it into the melted chocolate to make sure it sticks.  Refrigerate 2-3 hours until set.  Break into pieces and store in the refrigerator.
