12 Days of Easy Sweets
Many of you may have this recipe: but, if you don’t, you should. I bet that you will love it as much as I do. My friend uses 2 bags of microwave popcorn, but the frugal side of me said that I should use regular air-popped popcorn, so I set out to see how much of that would equal 2 bags of microwave popcorn. It turns out that 1/4 c. popcorn, popped in an air popper, makes the same amount of popped popcorn as 2 bags of microwave popcorn and with less unpopped kernels. So use either microwave popcorn or air popped popcorn in this recipe.
This makes a great quick and easy gift to put in a plastic bag and tie up with a ribbon
Snow Covered Popcorn
1/4 c. popcorn, popped in an air popper or 2 bags microwave popcorn, popped
2 squares vanilla flavored almond bark
1 T. vegetable oil (I added this)
Place popped popcorn in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Combine almond bark squares and vegetable oil in a glass measuring cup or other microwave safe container. Microwave at 50% power for 1 minute, remove from microwave and stir. Continue to microwave at 50% power in 15 to 20 second intervals, stirring each time, until mixture is completely smooth. Pour over popcorn, mixing quickly with a rubber spatula until all the popcorn is coated. Turn out onto a cookie sheet and allow coating to set. Enjoy and try not to eat it all yourself.
