Everyone needs a little treat they can pull together without thinking. Tomorrow is William’s Valentine’s party and we needed a sweet treat for his teachers. Several years ago my Aunt Loree entered this tasty sweet into our family’s recipe box. The truth is that White Chocolate Popcorn is extremely addictive. I believe it is necessary to sample to make sure your batch is perfect! Hopefully these bags of popcorn will last until tomorrow morning! -AF
White Chocolate Popcorn
2 bags microwave popcorn (My sister and I swear by the natural pop, no butter)
1 pkg. white almond bark
*bonus- colored Wilton Candy Melts
Pop popcorn according to package directions. Place in a very large bowl.* Remove all unpopped kernels.
Melt almond bark in microwave. When completely melted, pour over popcorn. Toss to coat evenly and then spread popcorn on wax paper.
Here’s the bonus: if you want to add a splash of color, melt 6 candy melts and drizzle over coated popcorn. Add red for Valentine’s, green for St. Patty’s Day, etc.
Let cool completely. Add some flair with almonds, M&Ms, pecans, etc, if you are feeling it. Store in an airtight container.
Great for little gift bags. Pour popcorn into clear cellophane bags and top with a coordinating bow.
*I use a plastic cake carrier. Pop the lid on and you can shake the popcorn and almond bark for the best coating.
