We adapted this recipe from one on the Jolly Time Popcorn Web site (www.jollytime.com) 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 cup salted mixed nuts
1 cup dried cranberries
1 (12-oz.) package white chocolate morsels
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Edible gold dust
How to Make It
Place popcorn in a large bowl, discarding unpopped kernels. Stir in nuts and cranberries.
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.
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.
Ok so a few things, first his recipe is kind of a pain in the ass because it is so messy.
I dont know how these people mixed all of these ingredients in one bowl.
I mixed the dry ingredients and then spread them on a cookie sheet.
DO NOT MELT THE CHOCOLATE IN THE MICROWAVE!
It will be dry and will eventually burn!
Melt it on the stove w a tbsp of water.
I tried this recipe with milk choc and with white.
Both were good, but I mean who loves white chocolate?
Also the cinnamon is a nice touch but a tsp is too much.
Trust me, half the cinnamon.
Overall very good tasting but a pain in the ass.
This popcorn was great! I made it for my kids special treat in thier lunch box and they loved it. It was very quick to put together. I left out the nuts since my kids do not like them. This will definetly be a keeper.
I made this as part of my Christmas goody bag in 2008. The gold dust (found at cake decorating stores) is very expensive and has questionable health issues, so I omitted it. The cinnamon is a must. My friends LOVED this and clamored for the recipe. It will be part of my family's Christmas traditions from here on.
