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
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!!
