This sweet and salty popcorn recipe is made using white chocolate. It makes the perfect movie night snack, party favor, or Christmas gift!
16 c. popped popcorn (3 bags of microwave popcorn)
24 oz. white almond bark or white melting chips
candy safe food coloring
On a work surface, arrange a large bowl, small microwave safe bowl and a large area for parchment or wax paper.
In the small bowl, microwave half of the almond bark or white melting chips in 30 second intervals, until melted and smooth.
In the large bowl, place 8 c. (1-1/2 bags) of the popped popcorn. Make sure there are no unpopped kernels. Pour half of the melted white chocolate over the popcorn and mix well. Then pour in the rest and mix again, making sure each kernel is coated evenly.
Spread the popcorn on the parchment in a single layer and while it is still wet, top with sprinkles or other toppings of your choice.
If using candy safe food color, reserve 2 TB of melted almond bark for every color you choose. Mix to get the colors and shades you want (red and blue+yellow to get the above), and place in a disposable pastry bag. Cut the tip and immediately start drizzling over the popcorn. Repeat with each color.
Repeat the same process with the rest of the popcorn and almond bark and let sit for about 5-10 minutes, until hardened.
Using a butter knife or your hands, break apart the popcorn into individual kernels or bite size sections and store at room temperature.
The ingredient sizes are an estimate as package sizes can vary – anything around the amounts listed is fine.
16 c. popped popcorn is the equivalent of 3 bags of microwave popcorn.
I use butter popcorn in this recipe – it makes it extra sweet and salty!
