I know, this just looks like a bowl of popcorn with some pastel colored M&M’s in it. But there is a little added twist of deliciousness.
The popcorn is from Orville Redenbacher. It’ is one of their Natural microwave popcorns that is Lime & Salt flavor. I love it. Not sure I’ll ever be able to eat popcorn without lime flavor in it again. ;)
After also recently finding White Chocolate M&M’s, I started thinking about how good white chocolate and lime would be together.
So this is actually not really a recipe, but an idea I carried out. Try it—I thought I’d just have a few bites and let the kids eat the rest. And I ended up eating the whole thing! Shhh. No, those microwaveable bags of popcorn are the smaller individual sizes.
I popped a bag of the delicious lime and salt popcorn and melted around 2 ounces of white chocolate (Lindt is the best!). I pour the melted white chocolate over the popcorn and stirred it to coat all of it evenly. I then put it in the fridge to harden up for a few minutes. Although it was just fine and tasted great still “wet”! Then for kicks, I sprinkled some of the White Chocolate M&M’s in with the popcorn. Those M&M’s are good, white chocolate is actually not my preferred kind of chocolate (dark, Baby!), but now and then it’s a fun little sweet treat.
White Chocolate and Lime are a match made in heaven!
