Sweet Popcorn

My daughter was home all weekend. When this happens I end up making some kind of sweet stuff.
Keeping the calories low, I made some white chocolate popcorn. I experimented the other day and it was win so I had to share it with her.

I popped up a mini bag of (100 calories) popcorn. Then I melted one block of white chocolate in the microwave and poured it onto the popcorn. With a spoon, I tossed and folded the popcorn until it was covered in the chocolate. It will not be completely covered but each piece will have a taste of chocolate on in. I laid it all out on some wax paper so it would cool faster. You don't have to do this step but I was in a hurry. I added some sprinkles to the top and ...

Wah Lah we had home made gourmet popcorn.

 

It was just sweet enough. I was afraid it would turn soggy, but once the chocolate cooled, the popcorn was still crunchy and fresh for....well, at least as long as it lasted.

Now if I can find the solution to make dill pickle or salt and vinegar flavored popcorn, I will not go spend 5.99 a bag for it in the gourmet shop again.

  1. I stopped by from Jack's blog to tell you how lovely I think the shrug is. Of course Sherry is an beautiful model, but truly the quality of that shrug shows.

  10. YOu are one creative lady. Sherry would love that popcorn. I am not a big sweet eater, but it did sound good. I love the action/reaction of mother and daughter. I Sherry had had a daughter I am sure they would have had the same ties.
    Sweet post (both ways)
