White Chocolate Confetti Popcorn

Confetti Popcorn

Hi Glitter Girls, Adrianna of A Cozy Kitchen here! This past New Year’s, I was at a party when I spotted the cutest, girliest popcorn I’d ever laid eyes on: White Chocolate Confetti Popcorn. I’m typically not a fan of white chocolate; since it contains no cacao nibs, it’s usually too sweet for my taste and lacks the flavor I love in a good, quality dark chocolate. In this scenario, however, I think it works wonderfully! The sweetness is offset by a few dashes of salt, and coated on crunchy popcorn with pastel-colored sprinkles, it makes for a fun, cutesy snack that I hope you’ll enjoy!

Recipe:
-1/2 tablespoon canola oil
-1/2 cup popcorn kernels
-Salt
-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).

    Probably too sweet for my own taste (even though I prefer sugar popcorn over salted), I think this looks so cute and would be amazing for a girls night.

    This popcorn is so pretty! I could definitely see myself making it just for how cute it is, though I’m sure with white chocolate it also tastes spectacular :)

    Used this recipe for a Superbowl party, using appropriate team colored sprinkles, and it was a COMPLETE success! My only recommendation would be to melt the chocolate like one normally would–in the microwave on a med-high at 30 second intervals while stirring in between each 30 second round. Wish I could have taken a picture of how mine turned out, but it was all gone before I knew it :)

    How long will this keep?? I’m throwing a sprinkle themed baby shower and would love to make this but will need to make it a day ahead. Will it get soft if I do that??
