The ingredient list for making White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn is super short. You’ll need popcorn (stovetop, microwave, or pre-popped), white chocolate chips, coconut oil, butter, salt, and red and green sugar.

What’s that? You’d like to use microwave popcorn instead of popping your own on the stovetop so the kiddos can easily help in making this White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn for their family and friends? DO IT!!!

White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn will be delicious no matter what kind of popcorn you use. Just make sure to have plenty of it, because it’s quite addictive once you start munching, and you’re going to want to keep some for yourself as well as making it for gifts.

Trust me when I tell you that Santa himself would be thrilled to find a bowl of this White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn waiting for him on the hearth when he stops in on Christmas Eve to deliver packages. It’s a nice change of pace from cookies, and has that salty-sweet bite everyone loves! Even reindeer!

Let’s start making White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn. Ready? Let’s get popping!

In a large stockpot over medium/high heat, melt 2 tablespoons coconut oil. Add 1¼ cups popcorn kernels to the pot and still well to coat each kernel with the oil. Cover the pot.

Watch and listen to the pot closely until the popping has slowed considerably and the pot us full with popped corn. Remove the pot from the heat source immediately. Pour 4 tablespoons of melted butter over the popped corn along with 2 teaspoons kosher salt. Place the cover back on the pot and shake vigorously to distribute the butter and salt evenly throughout the popcorn.

If using microwave or pre-popped popcorn START HERE.  In a medium microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Microwave on medium power, stirring occasionally until the white chocolate is smooth and completely melted. Pour the melted white chocolate over the popped popcorn.

Stir well to combine. Spread the chocolate covered popcorn evenly on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with baking spray. Sprinkle the colored red and green sugar liberally over the popcorn and allow to dry completely. *Note – this white chocolate popcorn is also wonderful for Hanukkah by swapping out the red and green sugar with blue sanding sugar. Once dried, the popcorn may be packaged for gift giving or munched on immediately! 😉
