White Chocolate Popcorn

I first must say that I am loving the fall colors. I think I have accepted the fact that it is fall and that winter is coming. I do love fall. I think I would love fall even more if it wasn't followed by freezingness. Oh well I love fall. I love the trees changing colors. I love that it is cold at night, and the crispness in the air. We live in an area that we have lots of mountains near us and we get to watch all the trees and mountains turn bright red, orange, and yellow.  What more do you need on a beautiful autumn day than some nice white chocolate popcorn? Ok ok I know that this might not go together like one would hope, but when is a bad time for white chocolate popcorn? I had this popcorn years ago at a friend's aunt's house and it was better than any white chocolate popcorn I had ever had. When she told me how simple it is, and the one secret that makes it awesome...I was sold. I have made this several times throughout the years and love it every time. The funny thing is that I'm not a huge fan of white chocolate. I actually don't like to eat this popcorn until the chocolate has hardened onto the popcorn. The combination of the white chocolate and the salty butteryness of the popcorn blend together to give it the flavor that I love. If you are thinking about skimping on the buttery popcorn think again. You will just have to trust me when I tell you that it makes it awesome. Try it and you will be sold!

White Chocolate Popcorn

2 bags buttery microwave popcorn (buttery or extra buttery preferably)
12oz white chocolate

Place white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals stirring chocolate after each 30 seconds until white chocolate is all melted and smooth. Set aside. Pop microwave popcorn per box instructions. Place popped popcorn in a large bowl being careful to remove any un-popped popcorn kernels. Pour melted white chocolate over popped popcorn. Stir popcorn until white chocolate is evenly dispersed throughout the popcorn and coats every kernel. Keep stirring for a few minutes to make sure everything is well coated and mixed. Allow to cool and chocolate will harden on popcorn. Enjoy.
