White Chocolate Popcorn

Start with popped popcorn, your favorite brand, about 3.3 oz bags. I buy the Nestle white chocolate morsels. I was once tempted to make it with the much less expensive generic store brand and it never did set up unless I kept it in the fridge and was a gooey mess while eating. My advice is, wait until the good stuff goes on sale and then stock up!

Remove the unpopped kernels. They get disguised once the white chocolate goes on and HURT YOUR TEETH! (This was from ONE bag!)

Okay, the back of the bag has melting directions but I will post them here anyway. Put 1 cup of white chocolate morsels [morsel is such a funny word to me :)] (per bag of popped popcorn) in a microwave safe container and heat in microwave for 1 minute at 70% power. The morsels will mostly retain their shape. Stir. If they need 10 or so more seconds, go ahead. (Mine did.)

If you want color, add a few drops BEFORE melting in the microwave.

Melted chocolate will still be a little bit thick. That's okay as long as the chips are melted and are stirred smooth. Pour/scoop onto popcorn.

Stir, stir, stir, stir, more stirring, stir...stir. Still stir...ya get the point. Just mix very well (kinda gently) until there are no large lumps of chocolate and the popcorn looks evenly coated.

Pour out onto tray to set. Takes maybe 20 minutes. Use that time to MAKE MORE!!!!!! Store in airtight container or plastic bags, or your tummy. (That's where we keep ours.) °Ü°
