White Chocolate Popcorn
- 2 bags microwave popcorn (I've used 94% fat-free microwave butter popcorn) or 6-7 cups plain popped popcorn-no butter needed)
- 1 (12 oz.) pkg. white chocolate chips OR 12 oz. white almond bark
- 3/4 c. (more or less) honey roasted peanuts OR your favorite kind of nuts (either one kind or mix them up-I usually buy the regular size can and use just about all of it)
- 1 (6 oz.) pkg. dried cranberries
Pop the popcorn in the microwave according to package directions, or use regular popcorn and pop it on the stove in a little oil (air popped works too), as long as you 6-7 cups of popped corn. Pick out all the unpopped kernels. (I spread the popped corn on 15x10 inch baking sheet and pick through it.)
Place the popped corn in a LARGE bowl. Add nuts and cranberries; toss together to mix. You need a REALLY big bowl to mix this in.
Place the white chocolate chips in a large glass measuring cup or glass bowl, then put it in a microwave on 50% power for 40 seconds. Remove from microwave; stir. If not completely melted, return to microwave and repeat the process JUST until the chips are melted and creamy.
Pour melted white chocolate over the popcorn mixture; toss to coat. Spread mixture onto trays; allow to dry.
Break large chunks apart. Store in an airtight container.
