White Chocolate Popcorn

Sorry it's been a while since I've put anything on here ... I recently got engaged so (needless to say) things have been a bit crazy!
But thanks to our loyal contributor Tracy for sharing this recipe! This looks so yummy!Just click HERE or on the picture to get the recipe!

FYI: Whatever you do ... don't try to color the white chocolate! Tried it ... doesn't work. Use the colored chocolate candy pieces if you want some color on the popcorn!

This is such a fun idea for a treat to give teachers at the end of the year! I got the wittiest gift from one of my students this year and have to share it with you. She gave me a large Hershey's candybar with almonds and a note attached which said:

"Thank you to a teacher who is oh so 'SWEET' and just a little 'NUTTY'!
Too cute!!!
Want to share any other cute ideas you've done/gotten for a 'SWEET' Thank You?

I tried the popcorn and loved it. My kids ate it up so quick. I tried making it in 3 batchs and adding red and blue food coloring into 2 of the batches to get ready for the 4th of July. The dye made it so it wasn't as smooth and harder to spread over at the popcorn but still turned out really cute. Thanks for the idea.
