  • 6 cups popped popcorn (you can use kettle corn but I just used plain popcorn).
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Lemon Glaze:

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 3 drops yellow food coloring


  • Pour 6 cups of popped popcorn into a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, pour white chocolate chips and microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between until smooth.
  • Pour in vegetable oil and lemon juice and mix until combined to make mixture smoother, and easier to pour.
  • Pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn and mix in carefully so the white chocolate evenly covers the popcorn.
  • Spread the chocolate covered popcorn out on a piece of parchment paper or aluminum foil until chocolate hardens.
  • In a clean medium sized bowl, melt the butter until it is almost complete liquid.
  • Add the milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar.
  • Mix until it creates a thick glaze.
  • Add the lemon extract and food coloring.
  • Mix until it is fully combined and the flavor and color is all mixed together.
  • For a brighter yellow glaze, you can add a few more drops of food coloring.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the white chocolate hardened popcorn.
  • Let the glaze harden and enjoy!
