Key Lime White Chocolate Popcorn

I will pick a citrus flavor over chocolate any day!  Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate  but I love citrus a bit more. But when I can have my citrus flavor with chocolate that is even better.  Today’s recipe for Key Lime White Chocolate Popcorn makes it so I don’t have to choose!

Key Lime White Chocolate Popcorn

The ingredients are pretty simple.  Popcorn is essential.  I like to pop mine in the air popper but you can also use microwave popcorn.  You need about 16 cups of popped corn.  You can use white chocolate chips or the vanilla melts.  I actually prefer the melts as they melt easier and smoother.  I used some crushed up graham cracker crumbs and some lime zest.  We are also big essential oil users at our house so anytime I make a lime favored recipe I always add in a few drops of lime essential oil.  It just makes that lime flavor even better.  If you are interested in purchasing a bottle of lime essential oil just email me at yourhomebasedmom@gmail.com and I’ll send you the info. Without the essential oil your lime flavor is provided by the lime zest. Cost:  $20.00 which includes shipping  Please NOTE:  Not all essential oils are safe for internal use.  Doterra essential oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade and can be ingested.  I do not recommend the use of any other type of essential oil in this recipe.

I melt my chocolate in the microwave and then pour it over the popcorn, stirring to coat.  I then spread it onto a wax paper covered baking sheet.

While it is still wet sprinkle your crushed graham cracker crumbs over the top.  Then melt the remaining chocolate, add some green food coloring and drizzle over the popcorn.  Allow to set up.

    This recipe sounds very good. However as a Certified Aromatherapist I would suggest you not use the essential oil. Ingesting essential oils can cause many problems unless you are taking them under the care of a doctor. Aromatherapists in the U.S. do not recommend ingesting essential oils.
