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!


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


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



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.

  6. Popcorn is my FAV and this looks delish!

  7. I don’t see the photo of the paper bag. Is the paper bag a good ole school paper lunch bag or something larger? I plan to make for my daughter’s bday party which will have 6 little girls and their mothers. Just trying to sort out how much of each ingredient to purchase. Thanks!

  8. can I make this 4 days in advance for my lil girl bday party

  9. How soon in advance can I make these? Is 5 days too early if I keep them in a large tightly-sealed ziplock bag?

  10. How do you get your white chocolate not to melt? and how do you stop your popcorn from go soggy?
    I tried your recipe and my popcorn wasn’t crunchy

  11. What you mean not to melt? The popcorn will become not soggy but a bit chewy. When you mix it in with the warm chocolate is losses a bit of the crunchiness but it is still good in my book. If you like just wait a little bit to cool the chocolate for a few minutes, 10 maybe, before mixing so it does not get so soggy. Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Chocolate is one of the most enjoyable and effective ways to medicate.Full Melt chocolates are organic fair trade premier brand of medicated chocolate bars.

  13. I am curious why you use 2 different forms of white chocolate. Why not just use 10 oz. of the bar or 10 oz. of chips?

  14. So do not waste extra time and browse more bellow about how to download this hack tool.

  15. How long does this last I was wanting to make it for my wedding Could I make it in the Saturday and would it last till Monday without going soggy? 

  16. Do you use plain white popcorn or butter popcorn? And would just microwavable bags of popcorn work?

  17. Thank you for sharing the recipe.  It’s delicious and a big hit I add pecans, pecan pieces with the popcorn and cover it all with the chocolate. My only problem with it…….it’s hard to stop eating it. Sooo good!!

  18. Using this for my brother’s shower. Making it teal and purple instead however since that’s the color scheme for the party as the mother requested.

  19. Okay guys just an fyi don’t put your hands in the chocolate and start mixing directly after you’ve pouring it out. I burnt the crap out of my fingers. Also Ghiralldi melting chips work very well

  20. Why is the popcorn mixture still sticky??? I thought it would be firm.

  21. Can I  use a popcorn maker instead? 

  22. No oil at all with the popcorn? Just the popcorn in the bag?
