White Chocolate Caramel Corn is a must-make for the fall. I’ve been making similar versions of this popcorn for years, but today is extra special because I used two delicious bars of Lindt CLASSIC RECIPE white chocolate for melting over the caramel corn; it really put this version over the top. White chocolate caramel corn is one of my all time favorite treats. It’s easy to make, it’s perfect for parties and gatherings because it makes a nice big batch, it’s pretty inexpensive, and it also makes a simple gift for giving.
This post is part of #Chocotoberfest! Did you see the Oatmeal Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe I posted yesterday? Not only is that recipe a keeper, but you can enter to win a chocolate prize pack worth over $350. I donated a gathering apron from my Etsy shop too, so pop on over to enter to win!
If you are in the mood for a little extra “Fall” in this white chocolate caramel corn, you can add a teaspoon of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to the caramel before you add it to the popcorn. It’s excellent this way!
When it comes to melting the chocolate, I highly recommend going through the effort to melt it slowly using a double boiler. You can pop it in the microwave, but if you are like me, you may end up scorching the chocolate which makes it thick, grainy, and impossible to drizzle and use. There’s no sense in taking such risks when you are using Lindt chocolate. Lindt sent me a few bars of white, milk, and dark chocolate and they have been SO fun to have in the house. I melted one of the dark bars into my triple chocolate brownies and it was perfection.
Lindt is also my chocolate of choice when I’m sending fun mail to girlfriends. I adore snail mail and try to make up “I’m thinking of you” packages once a month to pop in the mail. Lindt bars come in fun flavors and are always a welcome treat. I was pretty excited to get to work with Lindt today, and I hope to make this sweet collaboration a long term gig!
