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

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.

White Chocolate Popcorn


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).

I'll be making this to take to the couch. Sounds delish!

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 :-)

I love reading your daily blogs. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful information you have.

Merry Christmas!

Sounds good to ME!!!

Have a Great Holiday ..

My granddaughters will love this with the sprinkles! Thank you for all your wonderful ideas! Have a very merry Christmas!

Sounds good and so simple. I'll be trying this one!

my wife drizzles homemade chocolate over trays of popped corn.everybody can't seem to get enough of it.

This is perfect for me to make and give out to my neighbors, i try to make them something every year but I need something quick and easy I can do and this fits the bill. Thanks Lisa!!

yum! bookmarked that! thank you.

I read your posts all the time! So fun and lots of great info and wit. :)

....and this is why I love Snack Girl!..Happy Holidays

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I will be doing this TONIGHT! Perfect solution for last-minute gifts!!

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?!?

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!

Great! Thank you!!

Thanks!!! I love this and need it today!! I'm glad you did this, not Milo!! Lol

One word.....YUM!

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!
