Almond bark popcorn
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 in school, I used to “volunteer” her to bring this as a party snack.
Unfortunately, I usually gave her 24 hours or less of a 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!

Tips for making white chocolate popcorn almond bark
This popcorn 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.
FAQ’s about Almond Bark Popcorn
You can use any type of popcorn that you want. I recommend the buttery and salty popcorns 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.
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 or 3 days around here so I don’t know if it would last any longer than that.
You can add in anything you want! While we’re pretty much traditionalists, and enjoy it as-is but you can add in sprinkles, chocolate chips, chopped pretzels, and even crushed cookies if you really wanted too. 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 wanted to, both are great options.
