A few weekends ago, the girls and I visited a new popcorn shop in town. Totally yummy. 200 flavors, but pretty pricy. Thank goodness Pinterest led me to Eat Good 4 Life! Miryam featured her own white chocolate popcorn recipe and I tried it out today.

This just couldn’t be any easier. Pop over to Eat Good 4 Life for the recipe.

I was trying out the recipe in advance for the girls’ birthday party. As simple as this seemed, I’ve learned (the hard way of course!) to test everything in advance that I can.

So today I learned:

  1. I just used 6 oz. of Hershey’s white chocolate chips and that was plenty of chocolate for my taste.
  2. Four drops of yellow food coloring is not enough to make the popcorn noticeably yellow. I may just have to live with this.
  3. I can use a much larger container — about half of my popcorn is still on my cookie sheet.
  4. I’d line my cookie sheet next time for easier clean up.
  5. The girls have declared this “really good” so it’s on the menu for our party.

I’m going to let the popcorn stay in my apothecary jar overnight to see if I can make it the day before the party without it going stale.

Since I already had food coloring and popcorn on hand, my only cost was the chocolate chips, so for about $2.50, I have an easy and inexpensive party treat. (How many times have I written “easy” in this post? If it’s easy, I’m a fan!)
