Sweet and Salty White Chocolate Popcorn Recipe

I have come to the conclusion that calories just don’t count during the holidays and that it’s okay to wear maternity pants for the next month or so, even if you aren’t pregnant.

I just have absolutely NO control when it comes to all these Christmas goodies.

So, if you can’t beat them, join them. I am just going to enjoy all these treats and spend January making up for it.

My family loves to watch Christmas movies every weekend- all the classics, Hallmark Christmas specials, kids’ Christmas shows – I love them all.


Popcorn is one of my favorite things to eat ever! Ever since I was a kid I’ve been loving popcorn of all flavors (like my buffalo wing popcorn)!

Of course you can’t go wrong with butter and salt, but who says you can’t mix it up with fun flavors every now and then?

When I first tasted white chocolate covered popcorn I couldn’t believe how good it was. Okay, maybe I could- it is popcorn after all!

You get the sweet combo of white and milk chocolate along with a satisfying crunch from the popcorn. Oh yeah!

And this recipe is just the foundation for all types of amazing chocolate popcorn. I mean you could add a little salt, for some sweet and salty action, or add your favorite candy crushed up (m&m’s anyone?) or sprinkles! I love sprinkles!

Another great thing about this recipe is that you can add a little food coloring to the white chocolate and make it any color you want! Just mix a few drops in after you’ve melted the white chocolate and then add it to the popcorn.

Instant holiday popcorn! Add green for St. Patrick ’s Day, or red for Valentine’s Day. Endless possibilities!

This recipe is so easy you will wonder why you’ve never made it before.

How to make chocolate drizzled popcorn:

  • Melt the chocolate
  • Mix the white chocolate with the popcorn
  • Then drizzle the milk chocolate over it.
  • Refrigerate and then eat it up! Or try to stop eating it in my case!

It is seriously some of the best white chocolate drizzled popcorn ever!

White and Dark Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn

You're either going to love me or hate me for this. But it's high time I documented how to make white and dark chocolate drizzled popcorn, since we've been helplessly addicted to Mom's version for years.

Mom always makes a big batch for us to take to Connecticut when we visit for the holidays, and I have to laugh at how this treat turns out to be more popular than all the elaborate Christmas cookies.

I mean, it's popcorn. With dark and white chocolate drizzled over it in melty ribbons. Salty and sweet. crunchy. OMG.

Where is it? What do you mean, it's all gone.

The second time we brought this to Connecticut, we were still setting down our luggage in the kitchen when someone snatched the popcorn bag. The kids got into it before I could even take off my shoes.

I don't think there was any left by Christmas Day.

So, you can see where I'm coming from. I had to make this popcorn, since I think it's perfect for Halloween.

Of course, I had to scrutinize the ingredients first. Mom said she uses microwave popcorn and drives to a specialty shop to buy a certain brand of candy melts.

But I wanted to skip the partially hydrogenated stuff and save myself an extra trip, so I decided to go with popcorn made on the stove and Ghirardelli white chocolate and semisweet chocolate chips from the grocery store. (I have no affiliation with Ghirardelli.)

We were really happy with the results!

But. besides a stovetop recipe, I'm providing instructions for an easy dorm-room version for my favorite girl and her friends.

How to Make Key Lime Popcorn

The ingredients are pretty simple.

Popcorn. I prefer to use popcorn done in the air popper but you can also use microwave popcorn. You need about 16 cups of popped corn.

White Chocolate. You can use white chocolate chips, almond bark (found in the baking aisle) or vanilla melts. I actually prefer the melts as they melt easier and smoother.

Graham Crackers. You can use graham cracker crumbs but I prefer broken up graham crackers so I have bigger pieces of cracker.

Lime oil, extract and zest. We are also big essential oil users at our house so anytime I make a lime favored recipe I always add in a few drops of lime essential oil. It just makes that lime flavor even better. If you don’t have lime essential oil you can use lime extract or lime zest.

Please NOTE: Not all essential oils are safe for internal use. Doterra essential oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade and can be ingested. I do not recommend the use of any other type of essential oil in this recipe.

  • Melt Chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler.
  • Pour melted chocolate over popcorn. Stir to coat and then spread on a parchment paper baking sheet or counter.

  • While it is still wet sprinkle your crushed graham cracker crumbs over the top.
  • Melt the remaining chocolate, add some green food coloring and drizzle over the popcorn.
  • Allow to set up.

Once it is set up you can then break it up into pieces and enjoy!

With Key Lime Popcorn I can have my citrus and chocolate fix taken care of all at the same time.

What Substitutions Can I Make To This Christmas Popcorn?

Get creative! If you’re not a fan of dark chocolate, swap it out for milk chocolate. If you can find colored white chocolate baking chips, use those for an even more festive popcorn snack!


White Chocolate Popcorn Variations

Grinch Popcorn. Use Wilton green melts to give the popcorn a green color and then add in either red hots or red M & M’s for a fun “Grinch themed” popcorn.

Fall Popcorn. Add in fall colored M & M’s or Sixlet candies instead of the red and green.

Melted Snowman Popcorn. Add in mini Reese’s Peanut Butter cups for the snowman’s hat and some googly eyes. The pretzel sticks make the perfect snowman arms.

White chocolate m&m popcorn :: friday night movie snack!

friday nights at our house are usually pretty low key and are spent relaxing and spending time together as a family after a long work/school week. most weeks it involves playing outside with dad (or inside, during the winter months), making homemade pizza, and watching either a sports game or a movie on tv. i always prefer to stay at home where it’s ok to stay in my pjs and where we can choose and make our own treats for movie night. one thing both the adults *and* the kids in our family like to snack on is popcorn (who doesn’t?!), and when we’re not eating homemade caramel popcorn, or candy cane popcorn around the holidays, we like to make this white chocolate-coated smorgasbord of a popcorn bowl that has just about everything you could want to satisfy your sweet (and salty!) tooth.

it really could not be easier to make. and, you can always add more or less of any of these add-ins, or you could throw in whatever other candy you think would taste great and make you smile while you’re kicking back and enjoying your family movie night.

start with popcorn – you can air pop some popcorn kernels, or you can use a bag or two of microwave popcorn. if you use the microwave kind, just make sure it’s not the super-loaded-with-a-crazy-ton-of-drippy-butter variety. there are lots out there that are very simply and lightly salted and i think they work best for this.

the other thing you’ll need is a bag (or two – depending on how much you’re making!) of good quality white chocolate chips.

other than that, we like to add in pretzel sticks, m&ms, peanuts, and mini marshmallows.

grab the biggest bowl you’ve got and get everything in there, except for the white chocolate chips – they’ll come into play in just a second. our kids love throwing in however much they like of each add-in…that is, whatever they haven’t already eaten.

now’s the time to grab your white chocolate chips and put them in a microwave-safe bowl. the thing about melting chocolate is that if you over do it it will totally sieze up on you and you won’t be able to melt it down again at all. so when melting in the microwave i always do 30-second intervals. after each interval i stir the chocolate to see how it’s doing and to circulate it around so there aren’t any “hot spots.” if there is still a significant amount of chocolate unmelted i put it in for another 30 seconds, and so on, until there are only a few unmelted chunks left.

you can see in the picture below that there are still a few pieces of unmelted chocolate, but because the rest of the chocolate is so warm those little pieces will melt when i stir it. putting it in the microwave for any more time at this point would be a mistake!

this white chocolate is going to be the “sweet” that coats all the mostly “salty” ingredients in our popcorn bowl.

so just drizzle it on top (a glorious sight)…

and then quickly and gently stir everything together in the big bowl, adding more chocolate, as needed (or wanted!), before spreading everything into a single layer on parchment-lined baking sheets to cool and set for a little while.

and if you can refrain from eating it all before it totally sets, congratulations! if you have any left for movie night, put a whole bunch into individual bowls for everyone, get in your pjs, and curl up with a blanket for a fun family movie night!

here’s the “recipe” – if you can call it that. though like i said above, add however much of whatever you want…play with it! have fun!


  • 3 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/3 cup fresh popcorn kernels
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick Gourmet Roasted Saigon Cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream

Step 1

1. Heat oil in Dutch oven or large pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 popcorn kernel to test if hot enough, once kernel pops add remaining kernels and close pot with lid. Cook until popping stops about 1- 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and drizzle with melted butter. Stir to coat all pieces. Place sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and stir to combine, sprinkle over buttered popcorn, stirring to coat all pieces. Pour onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.

2. Melt chocolate chips and heavy cream in double boiler until melted and smooth. Drizzle over popcorn and let harden, about 20-30 minutes. Transfer to bags or little popcorn boxes.


How to Make Candy Corn Popcorn

  • Pop 16 cups of popcorn and place in a large bowl. Be sure and remove any of the unpopped kernels.
  • Melt your white chocolate in the microwave or on the stove top and pour over popcorn, stirring to coat evenly.
  • Spread popcorn mixture onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet and sprinkle with candy corn, peanuts and marshmallows. Be sure add the candy right away before the chocolate starts to set up. The chocolate acts as glue to hold the candy on.

    Melt orange melts and or chocolate melts or chips and put each one into a ziploc bag. Using a freezer bag versus a storage bag is preferred. They are heavier and the chocolate will be warm. Clip off the corner of the bag and drizzle chocolate over popcorn. Be generous as the chocolate helps hold the candy and nuts down.

Or you can just use a fork too.

Allow the chocolate to set and harden up and then break the candy corn popcorn apart into pieces.

You are going to love the sweet and salty combination of this popcorn and it’s pretty cute too!

Warning though – it can be a bit addictive. Once you start eating it, it is hard to stop.
