   12      cups          popcorn -- popped
    1      cup           unsalted peanuts
    1      cup           sugar
      2/3  cup           corn syrup
    2      tablespoons   butter
    6      ounces        semisweet chocolate
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
 
 Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
 
 Spray a large, shallow roasting pan with vegetable spray.  Mix popcorn and 
 peanuts in roasting pan.
 
 In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, cook corn syrup, sugar and margarine over 
 medium heat, until the mixture boils, stirring constantly.  Stir in 
 chocolate and continue to cook for 5 minutes or until the chocolate is 
 completely melted and the mixture has thickened.  Remove from heat and 
 stir in vanilla.  Pour over popcorn and peanuts; stir to coat well.
 
 Bake for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.  Pour onto foil and let cool.  
 Store in tightly covered containers.
