  4. In a small saucepan combine chocolate, shortening, ancho chile pepper, coffee powder, and cinnamon. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  5. Drizzle chocolate mixture over popcorn mixture; if desired, toss gently to coat. Let stand at room temperature or in the refrigerator until set. Break mixture into clusters. Spoon into gift container.
