Easy Holiday Popcorn

For that quick snack that will delight everyone at the holidays, try Easy Holiday Popcorn. The beauty of this popcorn is that it’s 3 ingredients, it only takes 5 minutes to prep and it is so pretty and tasty. The kids will love it and so will the adults at the gathering!

Easy step #1: Buy your favorite brand of caramel popcorn and put it on a sheet pan lined with parchment. I love Trader Joe’s caramel corn, but Popcornopolis and Creators are great options if you can find them. Usually I like to make my own, but I’m all about quick and easy, especially when there is so much going on!
Easy step #2: Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave. No need to pull out the double boiler. Simply put the white chocolate chips into a microwaveable bowl and zap them for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between until they are melted and smooth (usually 60 seconds).
Easy step #3: Drizzle the white chocolate all over the popcorn and then toss the popcorn so that you coat it. It doesn’t have to be drenched in the white chocolate, just enough that it touches each piece of popcorn.
Easy step #4: Sprinkle sparkly non-pareils all over. Now, here’s where you can have some fun. When it’s Christmas, use green, red and white. July 4th calls for blue, red and white. Chanukah demands turquoise, navy and white sprinkles. See where I’m headed? Sometimes the sparkly non-pareils are hard to find, so click here for a link that will get you to the ones that I used.
Easy step #5: Let sit for a bit to the white chocolate to set.
Easy step #6: Eat!!!
