White Chocolate popcorn


Popping your own popcorn could not be easier. You just need the pop corn kernels, a paper bag and 3-4 minutes of your time……THAT IS IT!! You don’t need to buy none of those unhealthy versions out there….trust me….this is way better.

My daughter’s birthday its just around the corner so I am figuring out what sort of treats to make for the kids. The theme is of course pink so the cake and some of the goodies I want to make are going to be pink.

I think I will probably make some sugar cookies and some pink chocolate covered pretzels…will see.

These chocolate pop corn its just AWESOME. It is not going to be the last time I make this, for sure, since it is so good and super easy to make.

Anyhow, this is really good. You can even try it with dark chocolate or any other chocolate of your choice. You could even get more creative and add some other things to the mix….why not!

Enjoy!!



I used the white chocolate baking bar plus some white chocolate chips for the melted chocolate. On the right picture you can see that all you need to pop corn is the actual kernels and a paper bag…… SO SO EASY!

The left picture is right after getting the pop corn out of the microwave. The right picture is right after mixing in the melted white chocolate into the pop corn.

You could make the pop corn what ever color you prefer.

White Chocolate popcorn

Yield: 6 servings

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

1/2 cup pop corn kernels, unpopped
4 oz white chocolate baking bar, I used Ghirardelli
6 oz white chocolate chips,  I used Ghriardelli brand
1 drop pink food coloring, optional

 

Directions:

In a paper bag, like in the picture, place popcorn kernels and fold top of the bag twice.

Place it in the microwave and set to high for 3 to 3 and half minutes. Listen carefully for when kernels stop popping. As soon as the popping stops, take the bag out of the microwave. (Mine took about 3 minutes 15 seconds, my microwave is not to powerful).

Place popcorn in a baking sheet and lay flat to cool.

On a double boiler melt chocolate. When the chocolate is melted add 1 drop of food coloring and mix through. Pour chocolate over the popcorn and with your clean hands mix chocolate through.

Set aside until chocolate sets and serve.

  1. Friend, do you believe I’ve never made granolas before? What a type of food blogger I am?!! I love yours especially it looks so easy to make and looks very flavourful too ;-)
    ps: I love that you aded all these tutorial photos. It helps a lot! Have a lovely Sunday! 

  2. Homemade granola is the BEST, isn’t it? I must make a batch soon. This looks fantastic!

  3. I will pick up ingredients this week :-)

  4. I love making my own granola but have never made this version before. I’m sure it would be a huge hit in my family and as gifts to friends. I’m curious though instead of pouring it into a bowl after the first 30 minutes and then redistributing it onto sheet pans to bake again, couldn’t you just mix each sheet pan with a spatula and then continue baking? That’s what I do with my granola, although I’m sure each recipe differs.

    • You totally could but bc my baking pans are so full with it stirring it will make a mess since a lot of it would overflow as I stir. It is easier for me to just place it all back into the big bowl and then distribute it back again in the baking pans :-) Thanks for stopping by.
