This is a "Where have you been all my life recipe??!!" So simple. So pretty. And just the right combination of salty and sweet.. We skip the butter part and opt for two large bags of buttered microwave popcorn. For a snack, party or gifts - this is an excellent combination.

This was sooo yummy! The white chocolate takes longer to firm than the milk chocolate does so make ahead. I thought next time I might toss in some mini marshmallows? Would make an excllent gift for the kids friends at Christmas!
