It’s SUMMERTIME!!!! The best season of all, because let’s be honest, family vacations, time by the pool, ice cream cones and picnics at the park are the best. Prepaid Visa® RushCard and Visa Clear Prepaid are sponsoring today’s updated post as we talk about some other fantastic reasons I LOVE Summer!
My favorite holiday of the year is 4th of July. I know, not Christmas. How dare I?! But seriously, I love the memories, carnivals, BBQs and parades all coming to a close with a big firework show. How do you beat that?! Well today I’m sharing a perfect treat that you can take with you to a neighborhood BBQ or even in a plastic snackbag to munch on at the fireworks. It’s the perfect combination of salty, sweet and citrus all rolled into fabulous treat. It’s the best lemon popcorn recipe EVER!
Amazing Lemon White Chocolate Popcorn
2 bags of microwave popcorn
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1 large lemon
Pop both bags of microwave popcorn, and put into a LARGE mixing bowl (make sure there’s still room to mix) after removing as many unpopped kernels as you can.
Slowly melt the white chocolate chips at 30 second increments in the microwave, and at half power. Stir in between each increment until fully melted and smooth.
Pour 1/2 of the chocolate over the popcorn and stir well. Then pour the other half and continue to stir until all kernels are covered.
Pour out onto parchment paper and lay the popcorn out into a single layer.
Zest the lemon before slicing it open (you’ll need about 2-3 Tablespoons). Immediately put 1/2 of the zest over the top of the popcorn while the chocolate is still wet. Mix/turn over the popcorn and sprinkle the remaining zest over the popcorn. Then squeeze 1/2 of the lemon onto the popcorn immediately.
Let the popcorn sit and “harden” for about an hour, and then mix/break it up. Squeeze the remaining 1/2 of the lemon onto the popcorn again. Let finish drying/hardening and serve.
Store in an airtight container, but popcorn is best eaten by 24-48 hours after making it.
Not only can you take this to the neighborhood BBQ, but it can also be a fabulous road trip snack. Make it ahead of time, throw it in a bag and take it in the car with you!
