White Chocolate Popcorn with M&M’s

I wanted to share with you a simple and delicious Christmas treat that is easy to make and fun to share.


Some people call it “snow”, but I call it “popcorn drizzled with white chocolate and some m&m;’s on top”.

Mom said someone brought it to her at work last Christmas and she didn’t eat it right away because she thought it was just popcorn. But when she finally took a bite and tasted the delicious white chocolate, she said she didn’t stop until she ate the whole bag! Then she called me on the phone and said, “Traci, you’ve got to make this!” So, I did.

I agreed that it was dee-li-cious!

Here are the ingredients:

2 bags of natural popcorn (no butter)

1 bag of white chocolate chips

1 bag of Christmas (green and red) M&M;’s


Step 1: Pop two bags of popcorn.

Step 2: Cover your work space with wax paper and lay the popcorn in a single layer. (I made this step up. I didn’t like mixing it in a bowl.)


Step 3: Melt chocolate chips in the microwave. (Follow directions on bag.)



Step 4: Lick spoon to make sure the chocolate tastes good. This is a very important step!

Step 5: Drizzle the melted chocolate over the popcorn. I just use my spoon for this step.


Can you say, “Oh my goodness?!”


Step 6: Let the melted chocolate cool and harden.

Step 7: Add the M&M;’s and toss!



Step 8: Bag it!



I got those cute Santa bags on clearance last year.

Step 9: Tie them up and add a tag.


Step 10: Share it!

These make great gifts for teachers, neighbors, or your church family.

This recipe makes about 6 or 7 bags. And it cost me about $6.oo to make. Last year I made them for my sons’ PE and music teachers, librarian, office staff, and custodians. I think they enjoy being recognized too, even if it is with something little.

If you wanted to make this for a Christmas party, or just for you and your kids to munch on one night while watching Christmas movies, you can just put it all in a big, cute, Christmas bowl and let everyone dig in! Kids really love this! Who am I kiddin’? Adults love it too!

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Linking this recipe to my sister’s Christmas Recipe Linky Party!



  1. Hi Traci
    Great recipe thank you for sharing it!!!
    I am glad that you told us to lick the spoon because after all we need to be sure we are not giving out something yucky LOL

  2. I LOVE this stuff, but I usually add a few handfuls of cashews for the "adults"!!

    It's also fun to add some peppermint extract to your white chocolate, then sprinkle crushed candycanes on top. Add a chocolate drizzle for some peppermint bark popcorn…SO tasty!!!

  3. This looks so yummy! We don't own a microwave, so I'd have to do it the old fashioned way, but it still doesn't look too difficult :)

    Thanks for sharing the recipe…

  4. That will definitely be made at our house–very soon! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I found your blog via another blog via another blog and boy am I glad. I will be back to visit often!

  5. I made this tonight to give to my neighbor and my mail lady. I used almond bark instead of the white chocolate chips and it melted so easily and smoothly compared to the white chocolate chips. And the almond bark is not nearly as sweet as the white chocolate. Thanks so much for sharing!! :o)

  6. A gal brought something similar to work, back when I was a sales trainer (before kids)–I don't remember hers having m & m's though–

    I'm so sorry I haven't been by for a while. Google has had my blog so messed up that I have spent hours daily trying to get it fixed and they have no idea how to help.
    I have missed coming by and keeping up with you.
    I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas. Give those boys an extra hug.

  7. Just have to say I have made this unbelievably easy and yummy recipe several times already…it's wildly addictive and extremely popular with my friends and family…thank you! (Now if I could just stop eating it myself!)

  8. Thanks, Tracy, for this recipe. I did make it before Christmas and we all loved it. It actually never made it off the waxed paper that it was hardening on. We started munching on it and just kept right on until it was all gone. I just bought more popcorn and two more bags of white chocolate to make more for a News Years Day football party we are going to. Thanks again. Happy New Year to you and your family.
