Sweet & Salty White Chocolate Popcorn

posted by on 11/30/2014

We love popcorn around here. I make it on the stove just like your ancestors because we don’t own a microwave.


Tip: Use coconut oil and add sea salt. So good.

I wanted to put together a quick, holiday snack for the kids that they could enjoy while we were decorating the tree and watching The Nightmare Before Christmas via Netflix. I love that movie as much as I love popcorn and that’s a lot.

I popped some corn, melted some white chocolate chips, threw some other stuff in it and the kids thought I was the genius popcorn leader of Christmas Town.


This is so easy that I feel like I’m insulting you by typing these directions. Pop a bunch of popcorn and spread it out on a cookie sheet. Melt half a bag of white chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave and drizzle it over the popcorn. Mine didn’t really “drizzle” as so much “glob”, but that’s ok, you can kind of toss it together with a spatula and it still works. I added about a cup of trail mix that contained peanuts, chocolate candies, chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. I did pick the raisins out from the trail mix because my kids think raisins are a lie and won’t eat them. I also added holiday sprinkles to really blow my kids’ minds.


I’m not sure how often I would make this because we could not. stop. eating. it. Popcorn and chocolate, these are a few of our favorite things, but not raisins.

 I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team, which means I am going to watch all of the things.

The sweetest little boy in the whole word turns seven today. I’m going to need everyone to vote for Troy stat because it is currently snowing and -1 outside.

Happy birthday to my big boy.
