I have seen a few different recipes online for chocolate popcorn. Today we decided to try and make our own. We plan on leaving some out for Santa's reindeer on Christmas Eve, IF IT LASTS THAT LONG. This stuff is seriously delicious!!
I started with a bag of buttery popcorn and poured it into my largest mixing bowl.
We then added in marshmellows, M & Ms, and some red and green swirled chips. This recipe would be very easy to customize just by adding a few different ingredients or candy colors.
Yum! Yum! Yum! The reindeer wanted to jump in and start eatting but it was not quite finished. I also threw in a couple of stray gummy bears..
Using the 30 second method I melted about half of bag of white chocolate chips and then added it to the popcorn mixture. The chocoate wasn't a smooth as I would like, and it wasnt enough to cover all of the popcorn.
I melted about a cup of Wilton white candy melts and poured that in too.
Once I coated all of the candy and popcorn, I spread it out on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. I placed it in the fridgerator for a few minutes to harden. I then broke up the large piece into smaller pieces.
To be on the safe side, I bagged some up to save for the reindeer. I also bagged up some for Kara's friend to take home, and a few for the relatives.
