This almond bark-covered popcorn is a delicious blend of sweet and salty. With just two simple ingredients you can have this treat ready to eat in just minutes!
We love this popcorn with almond bark and I'm sure you will too. It's such an incredible salty-sweet flavor combination and crunch. Perfect for any time of the year and always gives a great twist to movie night.
My mom has been making this almond bark popcorn recipe for as long as I can remember. Back in elementary school, when homemade foods were allowed, I would "volunteer" her to bring this as a party snack.
Unfortunately, I usually gave her a 24-hour heads-up notice. But, because this recipe is so simple, cheap, and easy to make, there wasn't as much of a complaint about serving this to the kids as it could have been.
Of course, now that I'm an adult, I know how to make it myself and I can enjoy it whenever the mood strikes. There's one perk of being an adult for ya!
🍯 Why This Recipe Works
- It's easy to make. With just a microwave and a few minutes on the clock, you can have this recipe prepped and waiting to be eaten in almost no time at all.
- It's versatile. You can add in anything you want, and it will still taste great! Sprinkles, M&Ms, cookie pieces, etc.
- You can make it in advance. Prep it the same day or up to the day before and enjoy it later. My kids actually love eating this popcorn for days (or until the bag is empty.)
Almond bark- You will want to use some white chocolate almond bark, any brand works fine!
Popcorn- I recommend using butter flavored popcorn. The saltier and more butter flavor there is, the better. The contrast is wonderful!
For specific ingredients and measurements, please see the recipe card below.
Step 1: Make your microwave popcorn according to package directions and remove the unpopped kernels.
Step 2: In a small microwave-safe bowl melt your almond bark in 30-second bursts, stirring between each until it's smooth. Alternatively, you can melt the bar on a small skillet or in a pot.
Step 3: Lay popped popcorn on a wax paper lined baking sheet.
Step 4: Drizzle the melted almond bark over the top. Toss well to combine and coat evenly.
Step 5: Add sprinkles or add-ins of choice, if desired.
Let set and then break apart before serving. Enjoy!
🍴 Recipe Tips
This white chocolate popcorn almond bark is really easy to make, but there are a few tips to keep in mind.
If you plan on making more than 1 bag's worth of popcorn you might want to invest in a larger bowl. My mom actually has a huge Tupperware bowl with a lid (I'm almost positive it could fit a small turkey in there!) We only use it when we make this almond bark popcorn and potato salad. #Priorities
This popcorn recipe will be messy, there's no way around that. You can toss the melted white chocolate over the popcorn with your hands (after letting it cool down for a minute so you don't burn yourself) or you can toss it together like a salad with large spoons.
Eating it as-is as soon as it's mixed is perfectly fine, but it will be messy. Making it and then giving the chocolate a chance to solidify is a better way to enjoy the popcorn without the sticky mess.
It can last up to a few days before becoming stale and chewy assuming that you keep it stored correctly. We have never had this popcorn almond bark snack mix last more than 3 days around here so I don't know if it would last any longer than that.
You can use any type of popcorn that you want. I recommend the buttery and salty popcorn because it gives a great salty-sweet flavor that can't be beaten. I've used homemade popcorn, kettle version, and even unsalted popcorn before, but the butter ones are where it's at.
You can add anything you want! While we're pretty much traditionalists and enjoy it as-is you can add in sprinkles, chocolate chips, chopped pretzels, and even crushed cookies if you really want to. It's so good no matter what you do.
Once your popcorn and chocolate have cooled and solidified, keep it in an airtight-covered container until you're ready to eat it. You can keep it in a Tupperware-style container or in a Ziploc bag if you want to. Both are great options.
