XOXO: White Chocolate Popcorn

If you’ve hung out on Pinterest for a while you may have seen chocolate popcorn pop up somewhere. In fact, it is a really popular pin for Valentine’s Day!

I thought that I would attempt to make my very own chocolate popcorn because it looked super easy and, days after looking at pictures, I was craving it pretty bad.

Here is my attempt…

White Chocolate Popcorn

It really doesn’t look too bad. Like chocolate bark, the messier it is the more artistic it looks (well, that’s what I like to tell myself).


  • Cadbury Dream White Chocolate (1 slab)
  • Plain Popcorn (a few handfuls)
  • Pink or Red Food Colouring
  • Sprinkles


  1. Pop the popcorn and leave it to cool. I think that it is better if everything is room temperature before assembling.
  2. Melt the whole slab of white chocolate in the microwave (be careful not to burn it here) and allow it to cool for a short while.
  3. Transfer a few teaspoons of the melted white chocolate to a separate bowl and mix in a little bit of the food colouring.
  4. Spread the popcorn out on a sheet pan and pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn.
  5. Using a spatula or some spoons, carefully toss the popcorn so that it is all coated with the chocolate, ensuring that the mixture is still spread out on the sheet pan.
  6. Immediately sprinkle your decorations over the mixture and drizzle the colourful chocolate over the entire mixture.
  7. Leave it aside to cool before transferring it to a container.

This popcorn was as good as what I imagined it to be and everyone really enjoyed it!

(Also, if you were wondering, I bought a pack of those popcorn containers from China Town.)

Have you attempted this recipe before? What is your favourite snack to make?
