Everyday Inspirations


~ day 6: food ~


A couple of years ago Angie and I started a white chocolate popcorn holiday tradition. I'm not exactly sure why we picked white chocolate popcorn, but it stuck. We are addicted to the sweet treat and make it every December.

This popcorn recipe is easy and makes a great holiday gift. I decided to jazz it up a bit for 12 Days of Holiday DIY by also adding a drizzle of milk chocolate and breaking up pretzels over the top. The result? A double chocolate masterpiece with bits of crunchy, salty pretzels in every mouthful. Make a big batch and deliver it to your friends or neighbors on an icy day.

Double Chocolate & Pretzel Popcorn
(for approximately 4-6 servings)
1/2 cup unpopped popcorn
1/2 cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate bar
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bar
Handful of pretzels
Salt, as needed (remember, the pretzels are already salty!)

Prepare fresh popcorn with an air popper or on the stove. Spread popcorn on cookie sheets (this ensures even coverage). Melt white chocolate and drizzle over the popcorn. Mix, and let it set while you melt the milk chocolate. Drizzle melted milk chocolate over the popcorn. Crumble pretzels over the top. Mix. Add a dash of salt if needed. Package, and share the love.

Is it wrong of me if I want to sprinkle cocoa over top too? =D

@Teri: You should definitely try it. It's delicious. The white chocolate isn't overpoweringly sweet. It works well with the popcorn. :) And thank you for the nice picture comment. The mug pic ended up being a happy surprise after a bunch of bowl takes that were just blah.

@Marquaaaa: There is NEVER anything wrong with wanting to add extra cocoa. Well done, sir. Well done. :)
