Christmas Treat ~ Paint Can Idea!

It may seem a bit early to post about CHRISTMAS but it is just around the corner!
Last year I made lots of these and filled them with WHITE CHOCOLATE POPCORN to put inside! (Line the paint can with wax paper). The recipe is soooo easy and your family & friends will think it is gourmet popcorn! Recipe below.

I bought new, unused paint cans at Lowe's, assorted Christmas ribbon, red craft paint, retro graphics, and scrapbooking adhesive. Make some yourself!

Easy as pie and it will be a big gift receiving favorite! Add a cute tag and hugs & kisses!
Candy Cane ribbon for a sweet touch.
White Chocolate Popcorn

6 ounces of Nestle WHITE chocolate chips
2 (3 ½ ounce bags of microwave popcorn

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. (Watch closely if you use the microwave).
Microwave 2 bags of popcorn or pop about 7 ounces of popcorn.
In a large tub (or 2 large bowls) drizzle melted white chocolate over popcorn. Mix and fluff as you go. You’re looking for a light coat of chocolate on the popcorn-too much will make the popcorn soggy and spongy.
Let the popcorn cool in the refrigerator until chocolate hardens.

Yes! It is easy and yummy! I promise! Enjoy! xox
