White Chocolate Turtle Popcorn
60 grinds of Baker’s Secret Spice Blend
2 Tbsp. Salted Caramel Sugar
10 oz. White chocolate wafers (not white chocolate chips)
3 cups of mini pretzels
6 cups of popped naturally flavored popcorn
1 ½ cups honey roasted peanuts
Parchment paper for drying
Melt the white chocolate wafers slowly in a double boiler over low heat, about 10-15 minutes. Break the pretzels into smaller pieces, lightly crushed. Pop your popcorn and pour the popcorn into a large bowl. Make sure you do not have any un-popped kernels. Add the peanuts and the pretzel pieces. Add the Baker’s Secret Spice Blend to the melted chocolate. Pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn mixture; use a spoon or your fingers to mix thoroughly. Lay the popcorn mixture in a 9×13 pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with the salted caramel sugar. Chill for 30 minutes and enjoy. Makes about 10 servings.
