With white chocolate and pretzels, this popcorn is the perfect sweet-and-salty snack!
5 cups popped popcorn*
1–2 cups mini pretzels
1 cup M&Ms
12 oz white chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening or coconut oil
Cover a cookie sheet with waxed or parchment paper and spread the popcorn.
Drop the pretzels evenly over the popcorn.
Sprinkle the M&Ms next.
Microwave the white chocolate chips and shortening in a bowl for about 1 minute. Stir, then microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring well each time, until the chocolate is completely melted. Or melt on low heat over the stove, stirring regularly.
Drizzle half the chocolate over the popcorn mixture.
Gently stir the popcorn a bit, spread again, and drizzle the remaining white chocolate.
Serve immediately for a deliciously warm snack. Or let it sit out for about an hour to dry. (It’s less messy when the chocolate cools.)
*Note: plain popcorn works better than buttery popcorn for this recipe.
