White Chocolate Popcorn

I made this for my sisters baby shower, delicious!  I have seen this done at christmas as well substituting the m&m's for crushed candy canes.  P.S. you can find the ready to pop boxes at Hobby Lobby.

3 bags microwave popcorn, popped
(I made my own popcorn 3tbl. oil and 1/3 cup popcorn kernals over medium high heat, I did this twice)
2 - 12 oz. packages premier white chocolate morsels
2 - 12.6 oz. bags chocolate coated candies (such as M&Ms)

Mix half of popcorn {1- 1/2 bags} and 1 bag of candy in a large bowl. Melt 1 bag white chocolate morsels in microwave at 75% power for 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted. CAREFUL NOT TO BURN!!! Pour a small amount of chocolate over popcorn and stir to coat. Continue adding chocolate, a little at a time, until popcorn mix is fully coated. You will use about 2/3 of the white chocolate.

Spread popcorn mixture on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Using a spoon, drizzle remaining white chocolate over popcorn. Allow to cool for 1 hour before breaking popcorn mix into large chunks.

Repeat with remaining popcorn, candy and white chocolate.
