Recipe Book: White Chocolate Confetti Popcorn
When ever you can, always try something new, like this delicious white chocolate popcorn! It’s a great little snack to serve up at parties (we made it for our launch party) and it looks pretty too.
1/2 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
6 ounces white chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup confetti sprinkles
1. In a medium saucepan, pour in canola oil and heat over medium-heat. When oil is hot, add popcorn kernels, making sure all the kernels are touching the bottom of the pan. Cover with a lid and wait until you hear kernels start to pop. Once they commence, grab the pan; while simultaneously holding down the lid, give it a good shake. Return pan to the stove and repeat a few times. This will ensure that all of the kernels pop. When popcorn is done, turn off heat, transfer to a medium bowl, and add a few pinches of salt.
2. Add about 1-inch of water to a double boiler (or a saucepan with a metal bowl nestled atop). Note: Be sure your bowl is completely dry. Heat over medium-low, watching the chocolate the entire time. White chocolate has a lower melting point, so it can seize easily. When chocolate is melted, stir until smooth.
3. In a few batches, pour chocolate over popcorn, mixing gently to coat each kernel lightly.
4. Evenly spread popcorn onto a baking sheet and add confetti sprinkles. Let popcorn sit for 3-4 hours (or until dry).
