White Chocolate Popcorn

I watch my granddaughter Toni, a day each week while her parents attend college.  Her favorite thing to do is to play outside but, when it is cold and rainy, I try to find indoor activities to keep her occupied.  Today we made White Chocolate Popcorn.  This recipe is quick and easy and makes a tasty snack for an active preschooler!

You will only need 2 ingredients to make it:

ingredients

Microwave popcorn and white almond bark.  I like to use the plain white popcorn, that is lightly salted but, is not coated with butter.

To make about a quart of popcorn, pop one bag of the popcorn and pour onto a large pan or cookie sheet.  Be sure to pick out any unpopped kernels.

Next, melt 3 squares of the almond bark in microwave safe bowl.

I like to microwave it for 60 seconds on high, remove from microwave, and stir.

Then return to microwave and cook for 20 more seconds on high.  Stir until it is completely melted.   At this point if your almond bark still has large chunks, microwave on high at 20 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until it is completely melted.

Now you are ready to pour the chocolate over the popcorn.

Stir the popcorn until all kernels are evenly coated.

Now pour the popcorn onto a large sheet of waxed paper and allow to dry.

After the popcorn is dry, break into pieces if they are stuck together.

I let my granddaughter, Toni, help me break up the pieces and put them into an airtight container for storage.

Toni liked helping, but she loved eating the popcorn!

This also makes a nice gift if you know someone who needs a little cheering up!

  1. Per Alton Brown (TV chef), you should close the bag with TWO stplaes, five inches apart from each other. No, the microwave will not explode, and the bag won’t catch fire. I’ve done it, it works great!
