White Chocolate Popcorn

1 bag butter flavored microwave popcorn, popped
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup dried cranberries
1 pkg. (12 oz.) white chocolate chips

Place popcorn in a large bowl, discard unpopped kernels. Stir in nuts and cranberries. Microwave white chocolate in glass measuring cup at High for 1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring after each 30 second interval. Pour over popcorn mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Spread on a cookie sheet and let stand 15 minutes or until chocolate hardens. Break into pieces.

Changes - use milk chocolate or half milk chocolate/half white chocolate. If using the combination, melt each in it's own dish, pour one over popcorn, toss then pour the other on and toss. For holidays, use colored white chocolate - pastels for Easter, red for Christmas, orange for Thanksgiving, etc. To me the white chocolate is best. The combination of the white chocolate combined with the salt from the popcorn and nuts create the perfect taste blend.
