We adapted this recipe from one on the Jolly Time Popcorn Web site ( called Glitterrazzi Popcorn. Find the edible gold dust at craft or party supply stores.


  • 1 (3.3-oz.) bag butter-flavored microwave popcorn, popped

  • 1 (12-oz.) package white chocolate morsels

How to Make It

  1. Place popcorn in a large bowl, discarding unpopped kernels. Stir in nuts and cranberries.

  2. Microwave white chocolate morsels in a 2-cup glass measuring cup at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring at 30-second intervals. Pour over popcorn mixture, stirring until evenly coated.

  3. Spread mixture in a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon. Let stand 15 minutes or until chocolate hardens. Sprinkle with gold dust. Break into pieces; serve immediately, or store in an airtight container up to 3 days.
