Hot Cocoa Kettle Corn

This morning, I finally reacquainted myself with the kitchen. I didn't make anything special; that is, unless you like hot cocoa as much as I do. The thing about hot cocoa is that it's usually reserved for fall and winter. So, what's a girl to do when it is not season appropriate to drink hot cocoa? You whip up a batch of hot cocoa kettle corn. This recipe is super easy. It's a bit messy because it requires you to melt white chocolate chips in the microwave but at least you get to lick the remnants in the bowl and off the spoon. Ok, so here's how it works.

1 bag of microwavable kettle corn
2 cups of white chocolate chips
2 cups of mini marshmallows
1/4 cup of hot cocoa powder

Prepare a sheet pan and cover it with wax paper. Microwave the kettle corn according to the directions on the box. When it's ready, remove the kettle corn from its bag and onto the sheet pan. Make sure to separate all the unpopped kernals. Your friends and your teeth will thank you for this (unless you are giving this to people you don't like. Then feel free to leave the unpopped kernals with the rest of the kettle corn). Place the white chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals. Stir after each interval. When it's all nice and gooey, pour half of it over the kettler corn and give it a nice stir. Then, quickly top with the mini marshmallows and stir again to thoroughly incorporate it with the chocolate-y kettle corn. And finally, shower this lovely concoction with hot cocoa powder. Drizzle the remaining melted white chocolate completely over the kettle corn. Let the chocolate harden. Then dig in. 

And now, here are the rest of my pictures from the wonder world of Disneyland =)
