1 3.5-ounce bag microwave popcorn
1 cup chocolate chips

Place popcorn bag in microwave oven and cook according to package directions. While popcorn is cooking, line a large baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.

Add the chocolate chips and heavy cream to a medium bowl over simmering water; stir together until melted.

Pour the popcorn onto the baking sheet in a single layer. Using a tablespoon, drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn, covering well. Press the chopped cherries and pecans onto the chocolate.
