No Time to Bake Cookies? White Chocolate Popcorn Saves the Day

White Chocolate Popcorn

December 17, 2014   26 Comments

I am sure you have plenty of time on your hands right now. I can tell because so many of you are taking the time to read Snack Girl.


December is my worst month and no one reads what I have to say. I could just let my dog type – sjjekdiguhe- THANK YOU, MILO! – and be done.

I am a persistent person so I don’t hide in a hole. I think (deeply) about the type of assistance I can provide.

Here is my answer to: “Bring a holiday dish to FILL IN THE BLANK (school, work, church, your gym…)”

White chocolate popcorn!!! Take 2 minutes to pop the corn - another minute to melt the white chocolate - mix them together – toss them in a container and everyone will think you are the BEST.

Four minutes later you are out the door.

You can use a bag of popcorn that you pop in a microwave. Avoid the “butter” flavored ones. Or you can pop it yourself on the stove or in a microwave in a paper bag.

Give it a try (and let me know if you like it).

White Chocolate Popcorn Recipe

This sounds wonderfully easy, and delicious. Best of all, if I skip the colored sprinkles, my little one can eat it with Trader joe's chocolate chips! (We can't do artificial colors in our house :-)

Quick (silly) question: If popping on the stove, do you add salt? Wondering if the little bit of salt would make the sweet even better?!?

on December 17, 2014

This is freaking brilliant. All those little gifts I need to give to the mailman, trash guy, neighbors, teachers...DONE! Thank you!

@Melissa - yes, a little bit of salt would be super yummy. I should have included that in the recipe.
Thanks for your question!

I am an x owner of a cookie company and I will say that White Chocolate is not chocolate and its not good for you. Full of stuff thats not chocolate. That's why it melts so easily. I say use REAL Chocolate! Tastes better and MUCH better for you!

Thanks! I needed a very quick treat for my dieting friends!
