Freeze-dried strawberries give this yummy popcorn loads of flavor, and the white chocolate provides the perfect creamy pairing.
Yield: Serves 4-6
1/4 cup freeze-dried strawberries
6 cups popped popcorn
1 cup white chocolate chips, melted
- In small food processor or spice grinder, pulse freeze-dried strawberries until finely ground.
- Place popcorn in large bowl. Drizzle melted chocolate over top; toss until well coated. Sprinkle evenly with ground freeze-dried strawberries; toss until well coated.
- Scrape onto large parchment paper–lined baking sheet, spreading into even layer.

To melt chocolate, place chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water, stirring for 3 to 5 minutes or until smooth.
To melt chocolate in the microwave, place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup. Microwave on Medium, stirring every 30 seconds, for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth and melted.
