White Chocolate Popcorn

This is such an easy snack to make and how appropriate that today is
NATIONAL POPCORN DAY! I am just loving all these fun "food" days!
Also pictured is a few Chocolate Dipped Pretzels! I made these goodie bags for my girls dance team!

White Chocolate Popcorn
from my scrapbook friend Paula

2 bags of Microwave Popcorn (with BUTTER)
1 lb of melting White Chocolate
(also a little colored melting chocolate if you wish to color it up a bit)
OPTIONAL: m&m's, pretzels, any kind of nuts, etc

Microwave both bags of popcorn, one at a time. Then lay out all the popcorn on a piece of wax paper. You need to lay out all the popcorn so that you can hand pick out each kernel that did not POP. Repeat this for the second bag. Then melt the white chocolate in the microwave (starting at 40 seconds at a time, so that is does not burn). Use an extra large bowl and mix all of the popcorn with the white chocolate. Also if you are going to add in any add-in's (ie: m&m's or nuts or pretzels) do this at this time. Mix it all together with the melted chocolate and then spread out back onto the wax paper, let set up and you are finished. (Unless you are adding in a "colored" chocolate. Like picture above "purple chocolate"; then once popcorn mixture is spread back onto your wax paper, all you need to do is melt a little bit of colored chocolate and drizzle over the top (let set and it's ready to serve)!
