White Chocolate Popcorn

White Chocolate Popcorn
Ok, so as I am writing this lovely post 
in the wee small hours of the morning, or the dark hours of late late night time…however you prefer to see it.
It has occurred to me that the last three posts have
all included some kind of chocolate.
Alright, they have included A LOT of chocolate.
White, dark, and milk have all been represented.
 Should I apologize for this kind of behavior?
Maybe only to my hips….
Isn’t it Halloween soon or something?
Don’t we all have chocolate on the mind!
Maybe just those of us burning the midnight oil, 
typing and writing about chocolate.
White, dark and milk.
Delicious  in each form.
This wonderful White Chocolate Popcorn is very easy to make.
It doesn’t need to bake.
Like a fancy cake.
Boy, I wish I were awake……

See you back here tomorrow for something without sugar and chocolate.
It’s really good.
It has bread.
And cheese…..
You can eat it while you make this popcorn!

White Chocolate Popcorn
Time: 20 minutes + 30 minutes to set up
Yield: about 12 servings
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!
2 bags microwave popcorn
2  12 oz packages white chocolate chips
1 T shortening
1 C  m and m’s
1 C peanuts (I used honey roasted)
1. Pop you popcorn according to package directions.
2. Put your white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat it for 30 seconds and then stir. Repeat until it is all melted. Don’t get it too hot! If you don’t heat it slowly….it can burn. Oh, that would be one sad day. Burned white chocolate. What a shame.
3. Add the shortening to your melted chocolate. Stir until melted.
4. Place your pop corn in two large bowls. It’s easier to get all of the goodies incorporated if you use two bowls instead of one.
5. Pour the white chocolate over the popcorn. Stir it all around to incorporate.
6. Add the m and m’s and the peanuts and stir so they get all stuck in the white chocolate as well.
7. Lay the chocolate covered popcorn on two large cookie sheets that are lined with wax paper.
8. After the chocolate has set (about 30 minutes) break it into chucks and eat it up!
Or, bag some up and give it to a friend!

    Okay, have I told you how much I love you, lately?
    I have been looking for this recipe for weeks! I want to make bags of yummy popcorn with two movie tickets(to our local dollar theater) tied to the bag with Christmas ribbon for my kids to give their friends for Christmas! You are a life saver! Thank you!

    I am making this same thing for Christmas presents for the neighbors, but instead of the M&M's and peanuts, I will sprinkle finely crushed canycanes on top of the chocolate….it's delcious!!!! It's not overbearing with peppermint. (You could add the extract to the melted chocolate for those that love a strong peppermint taste though…)
    I love seeing recipes Jamie! Thank you for taking the time to share them with us!

    My daughter can't wait to get her braces off so we can make and eat some of this white chocolate popcorn together. And this is a great gift idea!

    I love to add marshmallows and pretzels to the mix too! One of my favorites! And so addictive…

    Just made a batch…delish! I agree it would make a great gift, too. Would it need airtight packaging? Also, has anybody kept this popcorn around long enough to know how long it keeps once it's made?

    You would need to pack it in an air tight container. As for how well it keeps, I'm not sure! Seems to get eaten pretty fast! Good luck. Let me know if you try it and how it keeps.

      hahaha. take the skin off. that makes me laugh. that’s the best part all deep fried and calorie-packed gondeoss. i tried to force the 2(and a half year old) to eat fish tacos(which yes i know sounds slightly wrong). I even put it in a muffin tray! no go.

    It's really good if you drizzle milk/dark chocolate over it. Yumm!
