Festive White Chocolate Popcorn

No matter what your plans are, this white chocolate popcorn with a bit of a winter edge is sure to add some festive spirit to your day. Steeple Market is ready and waiting with everything you need to get started!

How to Make White Chocolate Popcorn

Step One: Pop some popcorn.

You need 7 cups of popped popcorn to make this white chocolate popcorn. I personally like to use air popped popcorn because it remains crispy once coated in white chocolate and there is no oil flavor in this sweet popcorn.

I do not recommend using buttered popcorn to make this white chocolate popcorn as the butter can make the popcorn lose some structure and won’t be as crispy.

Hot Tip: Remove all of the un-popped kernels. You don’t want to have your friends biting into hard un-popped kernels so be sure to remove them.

Pour the white chocolate or confectionery coating over top of the popcorn and toss to coat.

Hot Tip: Just toss until coated. Do not continue to stir before adding the candy or sprinkles as the chocolate will begin to harden.  

Once the popcorn is coated in chocolate, pour out onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and spread into an even layer. 

This is Where Things Get Creative

Once you sprinkle your toppings, tap the tray a few times to make sure the candies and sprinkles stick to the wet popcorn.

Refrigerate for about 10 minutes until the white chocolate hardens.

Remove and break the white chocolate covered popcorn into smaller chunks.

Some of the sprinkles and snowflake candies will fall off, but that’s ok! Now you can sample your yummy snack ahead of time.
