White Chocolate Popcorn

I made this recipe with my little boy last night. He loves to help his mom in the kitchen. I also really enjoy having him by my side. It is fun to have some mother son bounding time! I wanted to give this recipe a try and thought it would be a wonderful recipe to
get my little boy in the kitchen, but also to satisfy my craving for something sweet! I love that this recipe calls for ingredients that you have on hand in your pantry: popcorn, shortening and two bags of white chocolate chips. The only other additional ingredients that you may have to pick up are peanuts and m&m's. This recipe is an easy one to make. It takes a total of 45 minutes from start to finish before you can start enjoy this yummy popcorn but it is worth the wait!! This recipe is a wonderful one to make for a party, or to surprise a neighbor.

White Chocolate Popcorn
adapted from the kitchen of "Jamie cooks it up!"

2 bags of Microwave Popcorn
2 bags of White Chocolate Chips
1 T. Shortening
1 c. M&M's
1 c. Nuts, (peanuts, cashews work great too!)

Pop your popcorn according to package directions. Put your white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds and stir until melted. Make sure you heat chocolate in 30 second increments, you dont want to take the chance and burn your chocolate.Once your chocolate is melted, add shortening and mix with chocolate until it melts in with chocolate.
Place your popcorn in a really large bowl, pour warmed chocolate over popcorn. Stir until popcorn is coated with the chocolate. Add your m&m's and nuts and stir until well combined. Spread coated popcorn onto 2 cookie sheets lined with wax paper. spread evenly. Let cool for 30 minutes or until set. After 30 minutes, break into pieces and enjoy or package up in cute packages and surprise a friend or neighbor with a sweet treat!
