White Chocolate Popcorn Recipe

How to make White Chocolate PopcornWe love making fun treats at our house that don’t take a lot of work. From cake mix cookies, to simple cake recipes… life needs to be fun. However, it also has to be quick and frugal. 😉

This White Chocolate Popcorn recipe is exactly that! I used white chocolate chips instead of almond bark. We can get white chocolate chips cheaper right now because of our coupons and the after season sales. However, Almond bark rarely goes on sale. I also used just half a package of white Chocolate chips instead of a whole package. I find that my kids like it better if they popcorn is just drizzled with the chocolate instead of covered in it.

Step 2 melt the chocolateYou just need a bag of popcorn and then a half a bag of white chocolate chips. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave at 30 second intervals. Make sure you mix inbetween. It took one and half minutes for mine to melt.

Now you have to act quick.

step 3 - drizzle chocolate on the popcorn

Spread the popcorn on a cookie sheet. I suggest lining the pan with parchment paper. Then take a fork or a spoon and drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn.

Step 4 - Sprinkle with favorite sprinklesQuickly top with your favorite sprinkles.  Since Valentines Day is just around the corner we did pink and red sprinkles.

Obviously you can do any other colors depending on the celebration:

  • Valentine’s Day – pink and red sprinkles
  • Father’s day – blue sprinkles
  • St. Patrick’s Day – green sprinkles
  • Wedding anniversary – you could you sprinkles that matches the colors of your wedding. How cute!
  • Thanksgiving – orange sprinkles
  • Halloween – Orange and black sprinkles

As you can see… this is a fun treat for any holiday! Or…. just for fun!

Since Love is in the air, we called this BE MINE popcorn. 😉 The kids loved it. So you are probably wondering..

How much did this quick treat cost us?

I got my bagged popcorn on sale for $.50 (3 bags) which means one bag cost me $.17. I got the white chocolate cost me $1 for the bag, so I only used $.50 worth. My total cost was under $1! Talk about a great treat for the family without spending a ton of money!

    Yum! This looks great. My husband loves flavored popcorns but if you buy them already flavored they can get so pricey so quickly. I’ll have to try my hand at doing it myself :)
