Different Ways To Make Popcorn

When it comes to the popcorn, I like popping mine on the stove top with a little coconut oil. But you can use any method to pop your popcorn. 

Air popper — This method is incredibly simple and low-mess. The popcorn can end up a bit less tender and you need a special piece of equipment, but it’s also a great low-fat option!

Brown paper bag — This may be the easiest option on the list! Just throw some kernels into a brown paper bag, fold down the top, and toss it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. It’s still a low fat snack, and then you can just toss the bag when you’re finished!

Stovetop popcorn — As I mentioned above, this one is my favorite. It tastes the best and only requires equipment that you already have in your kitchen.

If you use popcorn that’s flavored or seasoned (like the microwave bagged kind), I would recommend skipping the salt in this recipe. You don’t want the White Chocolate Funfetti Popcorn to be too savory!

The idea is to have just a hint of salt to offset the sweetness of the white chocolate. 

Let’s talk sprinkles next…

Best Sprinkles To Use For Funfetti Recipes

I don’t recommend colored sugars or nonpareils (the tiny little balls). But Jimmies (the long, skinny variety) or confetti sprinkles (the flat discs or shaped ones) will stick to the popcorn well.

And if you want to make a custom mix, any craft store with a cake decorating and baking section should have a variety of colors and shapes. Therefore, you can make your own mix to customize colors.

That means you can customize this popcorn for parties (click here for some football watch party inspiration) and holidays.

Green and red for Christmas, hearts for Valentine’s Day, a rainbow mix just because…the possibilities are endless!

How To Make White Chocolate Funfetti Popcorn

Place the popcorn into a large bowl and set out a large baking sheet.

In a microwaveable bowl, combine the white chocolate and butter. Microwave until smooth and completely melted, stirring every 10-15 seconds to make sure that the chocolate doesn’t burn.

Once it has completely melted, drizzle it over the popcorn in the bowl, tossing it with fork until all of it is covered.

Immediately spread it out on the baking sheet, and sprinkle with the sprinkles and salt before the chocolate has hardened.

Let the chocolate cool and harden completely, then break it up in pieces.
