Striped Chocolate Popcorn

By Nicole Martin in Food

Ingredients:

• 12 cups popped popcorn

• 2 cups mini or large round pretzels

• 1 cup pecan halves, toasted

• ¼ cup butter, melted

• 4 oz. white chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped

• 2 oz. milk chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine the popcorn, pretzels and pecans. Drizzle with butter and toss, set aside.

In a microwave, melt white chocolate at 70% power for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave at additional 10-20 second intervals, stirring until smooth.

Drizzle over popcorn mixture, toss to coat. Spread on baking sheets lined with wax paper. Melt milk chocolate, stir until smooth. Drizzle over popcorn mixture. (Use an icing bag and small round tip if you want perfect drizzling!)

Let stand until chocolate is set. Store in an airtight container or in the freezer to keep it fresh.
