Pop the popcorn.
Place the popped popcorn in a large bowl. Set aside.
Put the unwrapped caramel candies and butter in a medium-sized saucepan; cook over medium-low heat and stir until melted and smooth.
Remove from heat and pour over popcorn.
Mix until all the popcorn is well coated. Let stand for a couple of minutes to cool.
In the meantime prepare your chocolate chips by melting them either in the microwave or over a double broiler. Melt until smooth.
Grease your hands with butter and shape the popcorn into the size of a softball.
Stick a popsicle stick in each popcorn ball and dip each popcorn ball into melted chocolate, then roll in sprinkles.
Place on waxed paper until chocolate is set.
