Sweet and Salty White Chocolate Popcorn

by 101570747 | | 0 comments

On Wednesday night the Rodéo girls took a trip to Movie Tavern to see a Christmas movie and grab some snacks. Did you really see a movie if you didn't get popcorn?! Inspired by our trip, we decided to put our own spin on popcorn. The result was delicious. It was too good to keep to ourselves, so we decided to package it up and give it to friends for the holidays! What better way to say Happy Holidays than with a dessert disguised as a snack? 

We kept a bowl of this popcorn on the counter at the store and had to refill it constantly! A few people coined this popcorn "Christmas crack." We couldn't stop eating it!! 

What you'll need...

2 bags of popped popcorn (We used the Cooking Light pre-popped salted popcorn)

1/2 to 1 bag of pretzel sticks 

1 package of candy coating white chocolate (or almond bark if you prefer)

1 bag christmas M&M's  

Red, green and white sprinkles

Bowl, Spatula, Wax Paper

 

How you'll do it… 

Mix your popcorn and pretzels in a large bowl. Melt your white chocolate in the microwave at 30 second intervals until its all melted. Pour melted chocolate over popcorn and pretzels. Stir to coat all the popcorn. The goal is to lightly cover all the pieces with the white chocolate. While still warm, add the M&Ms and sprinkles so that they stick. Then spread the mixture out on wax paper to dry. Once dry, you can break it up into pieces. At this point you either commit to packaging it up for family and friends or just abandon the good intentions and eat it yourself. 

This popcorn recipe is really more of a loose guideline. Once you know the process you can change out the ingredients or amounts to whatever your heart desires. (Trust us, you can't mess this stuff up.) You could swap out the M&Ms and sprinkles for dark chocolate and peppermint pieces or throw in some Reese's candy and salted peanuts. The combinations are limitless. Enjoy it! We sure did.
