This Nutella Popcorn is the perfect movie night snack. You won't be able to resist eating this sweet and salty treat.
Last week my husband asked me to make a sweet popcorn munch for one of his church meetings. He knows I love making popcorn munches.
I'm sure you have noticed how obsessed with fun popcorn I have become. Have you seen this Reese's Popcorn, this Coffee Toffee Popcorn, and this S'mores Popcorn. Yeah, I love creating (and eating) fun new popcorn.
I decided to cover this popcorn with a healthy coating of white chocolate and Nutella and some salt.
I couldn't stop eating handfuls of this while it was in our kitchen. Something kept drawing me back to the bowl for more and more. And for research purposes, I just kept munching. This Nutella Popcorn is magical I tell you!
I love a good sweet and salty treat, and this popcorn has both covered. The salt helps balance out the super sweet coating and M&M candies. I love how the candy gave it a fun and bright pop of color. This would be the perfect snack for watching the Oscars this weekend. You might want to make a double batch if you have anyone else watching with you. I know we will be munching the night away.
This popcorn would also make a great St. Patrick's day treat.
Yes, I know Valentine's just ended, but I was over the pink and red, so of course I thought of the next holiday. The best thing with this popcorn is that you can tint that extra drizzle of chocolate any color for any holiday. The M&M's can be changed out for the different holidays too. I just happen to love those plain mini M&M's...and it's what I had in the cupboard that day.
If you are giving this away for St. Patty's Day, place it in clear plastic bags or jars and tie with a ribbon or some green twine. Thank you Pick Your Plum for keeping me supplied with fun twine colors.
Game nights and marathon movies are the perfect excuse for making this big batch of Nutella Popcorn. Really it is a good snack any day or time of the week.

Refrigerate for 3-5 days? Or is that just the shelf life after made?
You only need to refrigerate this for 5 minutes to set the chocolate. I usually store ours in a ziplock bag on the counter for a few days. It never lasts very long though!
This recipe sound really good. I have a question. What is Candi Qui. Is it like white chocolate or almond bark? Thanks!
It is a brand of melting chocolate. You can buy it at Walmart and most grocery stores in the baking aisle.
How do you manage to stay so slim while baking all this yummy goodness? I need to know!!!
I still have this sitting in front of me to make LOL - one more question. Do you use the M&M baking pieces?? Or actually M&M's?? Does it matter? I have no idea what the difference is.
For these I used the smaller baking M&M's, but you could use any size. Chocolate is chocolate 🙂
Oh yeah, now that I've actually read the recipe -- it doesn't go in the oven hahaaaaa. One more question then I promise I will make it & leave you along -- is CandiQuik just the melting candies, like Wilton's?? I think I only have white chocolate chips -- would those work?
Yes, CandiQuik is a melting chocolate. You could use the white chocolate chips too, they just don't set quite as hard as the melting chocolate. It will be ok though! I hope you like the popcorn!!!
This looks fab - going to have to have a go at making it, the boys will love it

You need to start a "gourmet-popcorn-of-the-month-club" or something like that. I'm going to the store later and I think white chocolate, popcorn and mini M&M's just appeared on my shopping list!
