Allison: White Chocolate and Candy Cane Popcorn

Hello again!  Just dropping in for a quick post.  I just decided to make some goodies on a whim.  Not really a good idea if you're home all day, and trying to lose baby weight.  Hmm...  But I have to share this treat with you!  I made this last year too, and it is so addictive:  White Chocolate and Candy Cane Popcorn.

Here's what you need:

*white chocolate chips
*candy canes

Pretty tricky, huh?  I don't exactly have the amounts, as I kind of eye-balled it.  Remember how I'm always talking about how lazy I am?  Well, I cheated and used microwave popcorn bags, and made the whole process that much easier.  The funny thing, is that both times I've made this, I've only had the single-serving-sized bags of the Orville Redenbacher's Kettle Corn (the low-fat/calorie kind).  It still worked great, and even added a little more flavor.  I think I used three bags (after burning one).

I then used a double broiler to melt about 1/2 a bag of white chocolate chips.  Once that was done, I poured the chocolate over the popcorn in a large bowl and used a rubber spatula to mix it together.

To allow the chocolate to cool, I poured it onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.  Finally, while the chocolate was still melted, I sprinkled crushed candy canes over the top.  I always have crushed candy canes in my pantry.  Never know when you'll need it!

Lastly, give it away quick, before you end up eating it all yourself.  I think the whole process took maybe 20 minutes (and that was with some snacking).  Enjoy!!



  1. LOVE this stuff!!! You got me hooked last year! We made a Chex Mix version to give to our friends this year. Because I needed so much white chocolate, I used Wilton Fondue White Chocolate Melting Wafers that I got at JoAnn's for 50% off plus a 10% customer appreciation coupon. (I like the taste of regular white chocolate chips better because they're thicker, but it really worked out for the big batch we made.)

    Then we mixed them with Rice Chex and poured crushed candy canes and powdered sugar on it. Yummmm. Thanks for sharing, Allison!

  2. Oh man... that sounds amazing! I just realized that I forgot popcorn at the store to make more. Maybe it's a good thing. :)
