I found this recipe on Erincooks.com and wanted to share it with you all. I think this will be a great snack item for my recently decided princess theme for Princess Peyton’s birthday party.

Side note- I find it mildly amusing that Peyton could probably care less about this party and come the 28th will probably only care about whether or not she gets cake. Hey–at least i get to have fun

Inspired by Jenny Ryan’s post on Craftzine.com (Many thanks to Pam for sending me the link).

Popcorn
Vegetable Oil or Olive Oil
Kosher Salt
8 ounces of good White Chocolate
Red Food Coloring

Pop a batch of popcorn. The stove top method is best, but you could also use microwave popcorn if you must — just try to avoid the flavored kind. Either way you will need approximately 8 cups of popcorn. (Erin’s Note: I love my Whirley-Pop. You may want to consider purchasing one. I personally will never go back to the traditional pot shaking method ever again).

Spread the popcorn over a baking sheet lined with a silpat or wax paper. Pick out any unpopped kernels — you don’t want anyone to break a tooth!

Melt 8 ounces of white chocolate until smooth. You can use a double-boiler to melt the chocolate, or put it in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time on medium power, stirring after each round. Once the chocolate is smooth, add a few drops of food coloring, and stir to blend.

Use a spoon to drizzle the melted chocolate across the popcorn. Mix the popcorn around with the spoon to evenly distribute the chocolate. Then place the baking sheet in the refridgerator for 20 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden. Finally, serve and enjoy!
