White Chocolate Popcorn


This is a treat that I definitely should NOT know about! 

1) Because it's so delish and,
 2) because it's super easy so I can make it whenever I want! 
(....and that's not always a good thing.)

It's not like this is a secret recipe, it's just popcorn and white chocolate, but let me tell you what.  It makes me a happy girl!

If you need a quick gift or a fast treat... maybe a little reward for having done all the laundry? What the heck...moms have to take care of themselves first before they can give their all to their family.  
I am a FIRM BELIEVER in that!
Emotional health is just as important in my opinion, as physical health!
Ask my sweet husband.  :)

So... if you've finished your laundry, 
 vacuumed the ground-in fishy crackers from the car,
or just need a little pick me up,
(ok, or a gift, if you're more disciplined than I am)

White Chocolate Popcorn 

printable recipe


8 cups popped popcorn
11 oz bag Ghirardelli white chocolate chips
sea salt

1.  Pour chips into a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave at 50% power for 1 minute.  Take out and stir.  Microwave again for 20 seconds, take out and stir.  Continue until most but not all of the chocolate is melted, then stir until the remaining chips have melted.  
2.  Have half of the popcorn in a bowl and pour some of the white chocolate over, stir to combine.  Add the rest of the popcorn, cover with the last of the chocolate and stir until the popcorn is completely covered.   Spread popcorn onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper and sprinkle with sea salt.  Allow to harden, or place it in the freezer for a few minutes. 

*Optional: may drizzle with melted semi sweet chips, or consider add ins like cranberries, M&M's, sprinkles, nuts, etc.
