Confetti popcorn is fun as a party food or as a snack. This recipe is great because even younger kids can help prepare it; there aren't too many elements that can only be done by adults.

The white chocolate makes the popcorn sweet but not cloyingly so. It's a nice alternative to caramel popcorn if you and the kids still want something sweet. This snack is better suited to winter; hot weather and chocolate will lead to many sticky and messy hands if you're serving it up in summer.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes (plus time to let the chocolate set)
Makes: 1 large bowl of popcorn

Ingredients
1/4 cup of popcorn (unpopped or pre-made)
5 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 bag of white chocolate melts
Hundreds and thousands or sprinkles

Method
If you're using popping corn instead of the pre-made stuff, prepare using the instructions on the packet. Often this involves using about 5 tablespoons of vegetable oil to 1/4 cup of popcorn. Head the oil, and use one kernel to test if it's hot enough. If it pops you're ready to go. Use a tea towel to hold on to the handles and lid of your pot and give it a shake occasionally to make sure nothing burns.

Transfer the popcorn to a bowl or tray. Using a large but shallow tray is best because it allows you to spread the chocolate and 100s and 1000s evenly through the popcorn.

Melt your chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 20 or 30 second intervals. Stir each time. Once the chocolate is smooth, pour it evenly over popcorn.

Once you've stirred the chocolate though, sprinkle 100s and 1000s over the popcorn. Stir it through and then repeat, making sure you don't have layers of popcorn underneath left unsprinkled.

Leave the chocolate to set completely and then break up the popcorn and serve it in a large bowl or in individual popcorn containers.

Making confetti popcorn is even a way to do some fun learning. Take a look at how the corn kernels go from a little seed to popcorn when they're heated in the saucepan, or how the chocolate becomes a liquid once it's melted in the microwave.
