I’d originally posted this for Halloween, but the same treat works just as well for other holidays. For Christmas, I’ve tried and thoroughly enjoyed the same recipe with candy-cane bits instead of reeses pieces. My coworker said White Chocolate Popcorn sounds disgusting, but if you like caramel corn or anything like it, you should give this easy trick a try. A neighborhood ghoul first introduced me to this recipe. It’s extremely easy, taking about 10 minutes prep time for a batch big enough for any party.
You’ll need –
3 bags of Microwave Popcorn (plain, white butter, or butter flavored is fine)
1 bag of Nestle White Chocolate Morsels (I tried walmart brand once with this, and it was kinda gross)
1 bag of Reeses Pieces Mini (For baking)
Make the popcorn and transfer it from one large bowl, sifting out the unpopped / hard kernels
Put the chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 10-20 seconds, stir, and repeat, until the chocolate is smooth. Don’t leave it in for more than 20 seconds at a time or it might scorch.
Pour the chocolate over the popcorn, stir until the popcorn is pretty well coated. Add the peanut butter pieces and stir again.
Put the popcorn in pans too cool off. If you let it harden in a big pan, it’ll get stuck like that and be harder to share with your friends. Which may or may not be a bad thing, depending on how you look at it.
Enjoy – and enjoy your Halloween! (Or Christmas, or Family Home Evening, or Tuesday .. you get the idea!)
