Hot Chocolate Popcorn

Hot Chocolate Popcorn Recipe l

I hope you all had a great Christmas with family and friends! I have enjoyed unplugging the last few days to spend time with my family. It’s nice to just sit around and relax without thinking about what needs to be done next.

Of course, even when you’re relaxing, you still need to eat!

Since you don’t want to miss out on any of the action, the quick prep for this popcorn is just what you need.

Hot Chocolate Popcorn Recipe l

The recipe is really simple. Plain popcorn is coated with white chocolate and tossed with hot chocolate powder. Chocolate chips and mini marshmallows are tossed in for a more authentic hot chocolate flavor.

Wait a few minutes for the chocolate coating to harden and you have a big bowl of popcorn ready to eat!

I love any sort of dressed up popcorn and i looooove hot cocoa (I drank it almost every single day last fall/winter when I was pregnant, and still love it) so this popcorn is totally my type of treat. NOM!
