More Bark- so good and so easy... Popcorn and Peanut Bark

I love popcorn, and peanuts and chocolate... This treat doesn't get much better- it's a heavenly combination.

To make one pound.

12    oz bittersweet chocolate (preferably about 66% cocoa)
3     cups freshly popped popcorn
1/2  cup salted peanuts
Pinch of kosher salt

Line a baking sheet with a nonstick liner.

Melt the chocolate in a large heatproof bowl set over simmering water, stirring until the chocolate is melted and smooth, about four minutes.  Remove the bowl from the heat and add the popcorn, peanuts and salt.  Fold the mixture until the popcorn and peanuts are evenly coated with the chocolate.

Scrape the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread into a thin layer.

Refrigerate for about 30 minutes, or until cold and firm.  Break into small clusters and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days.
