  4. After the chocolate chips and butter have completely melted, add olive oil and vanilla to melted chocolate. Mix together then remove from heat. 
  5. Pour melted chocolate over popcorn.Using a spatula, coat the popcorn with the melted chocolate. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips and peanuts over popcorn and place in oven for 10 minutes.
