It is possible only in the case of device virtualization (e.g vss, stack). In that case both devices are actually one device. Then you can configure 2 ports from different switches into one virtual device. The first device, typically, will have port numbers 1/0/x and the second one 2/0/y, etc. In that case you assign two ports to etherchannel like you would do:

interface Po1
interface Gi1/0/49
channel-group 1 mode active
interface Gi2/0/49
channel-group 1 mode active
