Looking For An Easy Read-A-Thon Snack?

Are you in need of a midnight snack for the read-a-thon?!?! If so, I have a quick and easy one for you that is a favorite at our house. In fact, my son won it for making it to 10 books today and I am eating the leftovers as I type this. (Oh crud, now it's all over my keyboard!!!) Oh well!! Enjoy!!

White Popcorn

You simply only need 2 ingredients (or a third to spice things up a bit)!

1. One bag of white chocolate chips

2. One bag of microwaveable popcorn

Now for the directions . . .

1. Pop the bag of popcorn.

2. In a microwave, melt only 1/2 of the white chocolate chips. (That's right, you can get two batches out of that one bag!!) I recommend doing this in 15-30 second intervals.

3. Once melted, pour over the popcorn and stir thoroughly, though chunks of the melted chips make for a delightful surprise too!

4. If you so desire, add some sprinkles. We did!! In the picture below, we are sticking with the season and have orange pumpkins and black bats!

All I can say is YUM!!!!


  1. My husband was just dropping hints about popcorn (he's watching Star Wars with the kids).

    Off to see if I have any white choc bits.


  2. That sounds delicious! Happy Reading!

  3. I would never have considered that recipe. Yummy :-)

    Good luck with the last stretch of the readathon! I'm sure you'll do great :-)
