Spock-Corn: White Chocolate Popcorn

This combo of sweet, salty, crunchy, and creamy is logically quite delicious.  It tastes so good, a Vulcan could almost get emotional.
Of course, you could leave out the food coloring and sub the chocolate Vs with M&Ms (peanut butter candies would be outstanding).  Readings indicate, the results would be just as yummy.
So, boldly try something you've not tried before.  And, of course, live long and prosper!

White Chocolate Popcorn
Adapted from Taste of Home

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate, chopped or chips OR chocolate candies
12 cups popped popcorn (I used 2/3 cups kernels, 2 tbsp canola oil, 1/2 tsp salt)
6 oz white chocolate, chopped or chips
Oil based or powdered food coloring (optional)

1.  If using candies, measure and set aside.  If making chocolate Vs, continue with this step.  Heat the semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave, stopping to stir often, until just melted & smooth.  Place the chocolate in a piping bag or a plastic bag with the tip snipped off.  Pipe Vs onto waxed or parchment paper.  Let set (chill for a quicker set).

2.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Spread the popcorn in an even layer on the sheet.

3.  Microwave the white chocolate for 30 seconds, stop, and stir.  Microwave for 15 seconds, stop & stir, repeat until smooth.  If desired, stir in food coloring until smooth and even.

5.  Pour the white chocolate over the popcorn.  Toss gently to coat as evenly as possible.  Salt to taste.  Allow the white chocolate to set completely (chill for a quicker set).

6.  Mix in the candies or Vs.  Pour into a bowl.  Serve!
