Now, warm 1/2 – the entire bag of the orange chocolate button melts in a bowl; depending on how much you want to use.

Repeat the process for the orange chocolate as you did the green – using the same care not to burn.

Drizzle, with a spoon, the melted orange chocolate, over the top of the green coated popcorn in a random pattern.

Allow this to set up completely.

    Yum, yum! I’ve never seen green or orange chocolate before! Does it taste like reg milk chocolate or has it’s own taste like white chocolate does? I’ll have to check and see if my local grocer carry that kind of chocolate!
