Sophisticated Sugar Series: White Chocolate Popcorn

WhiteChocolatePopcorn

Do not let the ease of this recipe deceive you! White Chocolate Popcorn has got to be one of the yummiest, easiest to munch treats I’ve ever eaten – no joke.

White Chocolate Popcorn

1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (Guittard is my personal favorite)
1/4 tsp. salt

Pop the corn in air popper (aka. no oil or butter). Meanwhile, melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave. I recommend only warming chocolate at half power, and for no more than 60 seconds at a time, stirring frequently. Once chocolate is fully melted, sprinkle in the salt and stir until mixed well.

Drizzle melted, salted chocolate over the popped corn. Carefully stir with a large spoon until the chocolate has fully covered the popcorn.

Place a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet and pour the covered popcorn out onto the wax paper. Place in a cool place or in the refrigerator until set. If left in a cool place leave over night. If placed in the refrigerator leave 15-30 minutes.

Be careful who you share with – because they will want more!
