Chocolate Covered Popcorn

I made two batches out of a HUGE bag of Skinny Pop popcorn from Costco and still had tons of popcorn leftover (the bag is so big, you could probably use it as a magic carpet sled afterwards). Batch one was straightforward classic, super decadent chocolate covered popcorn. The second batch was a combination of popcorn and mini marshmallows drizzled with white and milk chocolate.
