How To Make Sweet & Salty St. Patrick’s Day Puffcorn

INGREDIENTS

1 bag Wilton’s white candy melts,  vanilla almond bark or white chocolate chips

One bag of puffcorn (brand of your choice, any brand will work, my favorite is Chester’s Butter Puffcorn )

Shamrock edible confetti or green Shamrock edible confetti

Parchment paper or wax paper

Puffcorn drizzle with white chocolate.

DIRECTIONS

  1. On a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper lay out puffcorn in one layer. Reynolds baking sheets work very well for this recipe. 
  2. One bag of puffcorn can be spread out over two cookie or baking sheets.
  3. Use the microwave to melt your white chocolate or white candy melts. Start with microwaving the chocolate on high in 30 second intervals and then 15 second intervals.
  4. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the puffcorn.
  5. The amount is personal preference. I find a wooden spoon works best to drizzle.
  6. Liberally sprinkle the shamrocks or jimmies over the puffcorn.
  7. Store the decorated Shamrock Puffcorn on the counter for at least 15 minutes to set or do a quick set in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  8. Slide the cookie sheet as is into the refrigerator.
  9. Once the the chocolate has set break apart the puffcorn into bite size puffs.
