White Chocolate Frito Popcorn

With rainbows and gold on my mind, I’ve been thinking of things that are worth their weight in gold from my own life experiences:

1) Diapers on a 5 hour airplane flight. (Not for me…for my baby :))
2) An Ipod with more than two songs on it while running a marathon. ABBA, I can never listen to you again. Sorry.
3) A babysitter that is young enough to text but mature enough to know that cake isn’t actually considered dinner for kids AND letting my kids play with my bras and throw them around the house isn’t gonna win brownie points with me.

From your experience, what is worth its weight in gold?
I know I’ve been on a popcorn kick lately but THIS popcorn has FRITO’S in it!! The salty/sweet combo is killer. You can customize it for every holiday. You can usually find bags of green M&Ms at Target but I just had the regular bag so I let my little munchkins pick out all of the green M&Ms with their freshly washed hands (germaphobe here). I made this for game night and the Denneys and McMullins gave it the stamp of approval.
White Chocolate Frito Popcorn
Prep Time
21 hrs 59 mins
Cook Time
21 hrs 59 mins
  • 8 cups of popped popcorn
  • 1 lb. 16 ounces white chocolate or almond bark
  • 2 cups Frito's crushed
  • M&M’s
  1. Pop corn according to package directions. I used 2 bags of microwave popcorn. Put popped corn and crushed Fritos into a large bowl. Make sure to get all of the unpopped kernels ("grannies") out or someone will break their tooth. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until melted. Pour melted chocolate over popcorn mixture and stir to coat completely. Pour onto a wax paper or parchment paper lined cookie sheet and sprinkle with M&Ms. Allow to cool and dry.

  1. Love it with the green M & M’s. Those fritos just take it over the top don’t they!? So glad you enjoyed it.

  2. Love it!!! M&M’s and popcorn are a staple in this house, but you have taken it to another level!

  3. Oh my goodness, I love M&Ms, I love white chocolate, and I love popcorn. This was made for me.

  4. Just have to say that this looks flippin’ delicious! Sweet and salty is where it’s at 🙂 Can’t wait to try it!

  5. IS the popcorn butter popcorn? Or plain?

  6. hahahaha i love the babysitter comment— especially since i KNOW this is from definitely personal experience. And this popcorn looks so yummy!

  7. This looks fantastic … I can’t wait to make it 🙂

  8. @Jody,
    I used butter popcorn but I’ve found that any kind works well. Some people like a lighter flavor with a more natural popcorn. Totally up to you!

  9. Oh YUMMMMM!!!! Thanks for sharing, I will try this soon.


  10. OMGosh….this would be oh so bad for me. I would not be able to keep my hands off it. Somebody make it and bring me a baggie.

  11. Three of my most favorite snacks in one bowl this just can’t be right. Actually would be four wouldn’t it, nice.

  12. This looks so delicious!

  13. I absolutely CANNOT WAIT to try this!!!

  14. This looks delicious!

  15. umm, YUM! can’t wait to try it out for movie night! also, I totally second your #3 worth their weight in gold! babysitters who text are awesome, especially when they don’t allow bra-throwing AND actually put the kids in their pjs and put them IN the bed not just near the bed to sleep…that may have happened (just) once at my home…

  16. This looks great, I love sweet and salty combo foods!

  17. Another question on the popcorn – can you use air-popped popcorn or does microwave popcorn work better? Maybe air-popped is too plain?

  18. @Christine,
    Some people prefer the clean taste of airpopped popcorn. I think there’s enough going on with all the Fritos and white chocolate that airpopped would work fine. I have only used microwavable though.

  19. Great. Thank you. Maybe I will try it with both and see what tastes better. I’ve been following your blog about a month now. Another blog I read regularly had a link to you for the Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookie. I have a sweet tooth so it immediately caught my eye. You have a lot of great recipes and seem to like a lot of the things I like. Thanks for your efforts!

  20. oops – it wasn’t the cookie that led me here – it was the chicken marsala wrap. But I’ve found a lot of recipes to satisfy my sweet tooth on your blog. 🙂

  21. This is other option to eat popcorn it’s something really creative to watching a movie with our girlfriend and having fun.

  22. AMAZING. And perfect for upcoming National Corn Chip Day!
