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.

How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 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.

Step 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.

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.

I made this as a surprise for my three girls and their friends, and they loved it. The gold dust makes it magic. Will make again for them on another (surprise) special occasion.

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.

I would like to make this for Christmas. Could anyone tell me what "gold dust" is and where do I buy it? This sounds so good and I think would be great as a gift.
