White Chocolate Covered Popcorn

With Pecans and Pretzels

by Alli

I wanted to make a special treat for a meeting with a group of women and since it’s almost Valentine’s Day, I went with White Chocolate Covered Popcorn with Pecans and Pretzels.

There’s just something about the sweet, salty taste of this popcorn. Yum!

White Chocolate Covered Popcorn

I can eat popcorn every single day. I don’t, but I could.

Popcorn is even better with a few extra ingredients mixed in. The beauty of this recipe is that you can leave out the stuff you don’t like and add in the stuff you do. If you don’t like pecans, leave them out and add peanuts or walnuts.

My White Chocolate Covered Popcorn with Pecans and Pretzels also includes M&M’s. For this particular batch of popcorn, I added specially packaged Valentine’s M&M’s. They are red, pink, and white and they add a pop of color.

Funny Story: I more than doubled this recipe for my women’s group and I forgot to get extra CandyQuik. I had some semi-sweet chocolate chips, so I melted the chocolate chips for the last batch.

After drizzling the chocolate, I realized how unappetizing it looked. I’m not even going to say what this looked like. Trust me, white chocolate works best for this recipe. I left the dark chocolate batch at home.

Back in the fall, I made a similar White Chocolate Covered Popcorn, but I added Candy Corn M&M’s. This recipe is so easy to change with the seasons.

I love sweet and salty together! When I was young, all we would have for snack was popcorn. Popcorn=Inexpensive! I got tired of it for a long time, but I love it in things like this.

What a great way to combine sweet and salty. Hubby likes all of those ingredients so I bet he’d enjoy this.

My favorite chocolate to eat is white chocolate and this sounds very good. I would love to have some and enjoy it with my significant other while watching “Romeo in Love.” Sounds like a plan.
