All the rage–these days, and for good reason. Incredibly simple. Dang yummy. Perfect for your New Year celebration.
White Chocolate Popcorn
4 c. popped popcorn
1 Tbsp. Crisco Shortening
1 cup dry roasted peanuts, M&Ms, raisins, pecans, pretzels –or any combination you’d like
You can pop the corn yourself or buy the bagged kind–either way is fine. However–please, please pour the popped corn in a large bowl and shake it around–to get the un-popped kernels and the “Old Maids” to sink to the bottom. Then, lift the whole, popped corn out and set in another big bowl. Throw away all the nasty little tooth breakers. Seriously, they don’t get to be part of our adventure. Now, then–with that said…
Melt the Crisco and white chocolate together. Pour the mixture over the popped corn mixture and thoroughly coat all the pieces. Spread on waxed papered cookie sheets to set. Store in tightly covered container.
Nibble until 2010…and beyond.
