Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • ½ cup Yellow Popcorn Kernels, organic if possible
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 10 ounces White Chocolate
  • sprinkles

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large dutch oven with a lid, add the popcorn kernels and put the lid on.
    Put the heat to medium high
    Shake the pan occasionally to avoid burning
  • When the popping sounds stop for about 10 seconds, remove from the heat and put the popcorn on large baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  • In a double boiler, melt the white chocolate on medium high heat, stirring until smooth.
    Pour the melted chocolate in even ribbons up and down the pan, then use clean hands to gently toss the corn and chocolate to evenly coat.
    Let cool for a few minutes, then add sprinkles, if desired. Note: Don't add the sprinkles until the chocolate sets up a bit, otherwise it'll slide right off!
  • Refrigerate for 15 minutes to help the chocolate set up.
    Break apart with your hands and serve.

Notes

  • Don't add the sprinkles until the chocolate sets up a bit, otherwise they'll slide right off!
  • When the popping sounds stop for about 10 seconds, remove from the heat and put the popcorn on large baking sheet lined with parchment paper
