White Chocolate Turtle Popcorn and White Turtle Pretzels are inspired by the classic turtle dessert and the white Christmases of my childhood. I’m a lucky lady to live in the warm south but I still miss having a white Christmas. Honestly, I can’t pick which recipe I like better. My suggestion is to have enough white chocolate, Baker’s Secret, and Salted Caramel Sugar on hand to make double servings of both recipes, because they will disappear quickly! Both recipes can be made ahead of time.

This decadent desert is an easy win at a party. It’s a fun recipe the kids can help with making. My 6-year-old son and I counted out the pretzels together. Then he spread the peanut butter on each pretzel and placed another pretzel on top. From there I dipped them into the warm white chocolate flavored with Baker’s Secret Spice Blend and placed them in a pan lined with parchment paper. While they were still soft, my daughter sprinkled them with Salted Caramel Sugar. Once chilled for 30 minutes, all can enjoy.

White Chocolate Turtle Popcorn

White Chocolate Turtle Popcorn
Who doesn’t love popcorn? This recipe could be made easily by yourself, however, it has easy tasks that allows for the whole family to get involved and is perfect for gift giving. (Mom tip – Make double at least, because you know they will start munching on it!) As a mom to three, four if you count my husband, I’ve learned how to delegate tasks at home. Everyone in the family can help with this recipe:

  • Before I begin melting the white chocolate, I set-up the kids to help.
  • My littlest one receives the best task, breaking the pretzels! I instruct him to put some pretzels into a zip-top bag and to lightly crush them with the back of a spoon. He’s excited he has permission to break something!
  • Once he is done crushin’ it, my daughter steps in with her part. Her job is to pre-measure the add-in ingredients. She pre-measures 3 cups of the lightly crushed pretzels and 1½ cups of honey roasted peanuts.
  • No heavy-duty cooking needed here! My 13-year-old son pops the popcorn into the microwave. When it is done, he pours the popcorn into a bowl. To eliminate any unpopped kernels, he transfers the popcorn by hand into a second bowl. He then adds the pretzels and peanuts that were pre-measured to the popcorn.
  • As I finish up melting the white chocolate, my daughter adds 60 grinds of Baker’s Secret Spice Blend into the melted chocolate.
  • Now it’s time for my husband to help with adding the chocolate to the popcorn mix. While I drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn mix, my husband gently stirs and folds the popcorn mix so the chocolate is distributed evenly. We then lay the popcorn mix into a parchment lined pan and generously sprinkle with Salted Carmel Sugar goodness!
  • After the popcorn has chilled for 30 minutes, it is ready to be packaged. As we watch a classic family holiday movie, my daughter and I pull up a couple chairs and begin to bag (in small clear bags with a bow tied on) the scrumptious treat for gifting to our family and friends or serving at holiday gatherings.
