Winter White-Chocolate Salty-Sweet Popcorn

Winter White-Chocolate Salty-Sweet Popcorn
I first made this recipe for a twin-mom convention and everyone went crazy for the salty-sweet, addictiveness of this. It is just popcorn, white chocolate, crushed corn-chips, and candy (you can mix this part up!). Done. Salty and sweet. Very easy and delicious. It is a favorite of my kids, when it’s made in it’s purest form: with M&M’s. I am totally okay with that. But for the holidays, I think we need green and red m&ms…and in this case I used the Mint M&M’s. Well. m&m's for sweet and salty popcorn

Pop the popcorn, melt the chocolate, crush the chips, add the candy. Let’s do this.

There are lots of variations of this recipe, bu the one I base mine on is from Your Homebased Mom:

Winter White-Chocolate Salty-Sweet Popcorn

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

I love to make a big bowl of this "special" popcorn for the kids when they have a movie-night- It is easy,and a special change from our normal snacking~


  • 8 cups popped corn
  • 6 oz. white chocolate chips
  • 2 big handfuls of crushed corn chips (like Fritos or Bugles, not tortilla!)
  • 1 cup red and green M&Ms candies, regular or mint flavored.


Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Set aside.

In an oversized bowl, mix your popcorn and crushed chips.

Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe dish until soft, and stir until smooth (Mine takes 2-3 minutes on 50%power, stirring half-way).

Pour the chocolate over the popcorn and mix with a rubber spatula.

Add the M&M's.

Spread in an even layer on the baking sheet and let sit until it hardens (usually 30 minutes).

Break into chunks and serve!


Change up the colors of the M&M's for the holiday: Blue for Hanukkah, or green for St.Patrick's Day- kind of a little treat!
