Recipe: White Chocolate Popcorn

This recipe for White Chocolate Popcorn… barely qualifies to be called a recipe…. two simple ingredients… white chocolate and popcorn… now you can’t get any easier than that.

The other day I told you how my boss… the No-Bake Kinda Guy won the Bake-Off at work with a simple no-bake recipe…. well… as I wrote that post I got to thinking about all the people I worked with for years and all the delicious food days we had… and how many terrific recipes I had gotten over the years … some of them had regular spots on the “buffet table”…. one in particular was something a supervisor always brought in around Halloween and Christmas… White Chocolate Popcorn… she kept telling me… this is so easy… and it is!

She’d bring in a huge bowl and a scoop… and we’d start in the morning and scoop all day… well.. if it lasted that long.. the stuff is positively addicting.

This is perfect for all kinds of get-togethers and parties… something a bit salty and sweet.


Use non-stick foil to line your baking sheets… this way it won’t stick to the pan when cooling.

This starts out extremely sticky.. but after cooling they aren’t sticky. If some clump together just separate them with a spoon.

You can add other things to this…. pretzels, nuts, mini M&Ms, or dried fruit….. add the additions after the popcorn has cooled and no longer sticky.

If you’re making this for a party… nuts probably are not the best choice for an addition because of possible food allergies.

If you have trouble melting the white chocolate to a smooth creamy consistency… add 1-2 tablespoons of shortening and stir until smooth enough to coat the popcorn.

Use a large bowl… you will need it.

I hope you enjoy this delicious snack!

Recipe: White Chocolate Popcorn

All you need:

5 cups of popcorn
1 cup white chocolate chips
1-2 tablespoons shortening (optional – see tips)

All you have to do:

Line a large baking sheet with non-stick foil and set aside.

Melt the white chocolate chips according to package instructions. Stir until creamy.

Place the popcorn in a very large bowl. Using a spoon, drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn…. Some will come out in a dollop…. that’s okay… use a large spoon to mix the chocolate and the popcorn, coating them as you stir.

When the popcorn and chocolate is well mixed… turn out onto the prepared baking sheets.

Allow to cool …. about an hour. Serve in a bowl or store in an airtight container at room temperature.
