    I have successfully used almond bark for this same snack.

    Would this work with yogurt coating or almond bark? Also, my sister has a recipe for Carmel covered corn pops which is so good. 🙂

    We had our church staff party last night and our pastor made this in tins for gifts for the parents. 🙂 They love it! I haven’t made it before. I wonder if white chocolate would be good drizzled over regular popcorn too.

    The computer was acting up, so I don’t know if my comment went through. 🙂

    We had our church staff party last night and pastor’s family made tins of this as part of their gifts. They love the stuff. I have yet to make it. I wonder if regular popcorn would taste good with white chocolate drizzled over it too.

    Corn pops make great “popcorn balls” if you don’t like the corn husks from popcorn.

  7. I have an amazing recipe for these but never thought of adding white chocolate….genious!! Would love for you to come over and share at our link party! http://mommyondemand.com/happiness-homemade-1/

  8. I never saw Corn Pops like those, I’m going to have to keep my eyes open, these look so yummy! I wonder if they are gluten free? A lot of corn products are, I could be in luck!!!! Yum!

    I would like to know How Long to let them dry after you mix the chocolate in. The one and only time I made these I put them in a covered bowl after mixing in the chocolate and they were soggy and I had to throw them out. A friend of mime and made these and I really liked hers, but mine didn’t turn out. I ask her but she didn’t know how long she left them hope. Hopefully someone can tell me. Thank you

    • Hello Brandy,
      I would let them sit out until they are ‘set’ meaning the chocolate is no longer sticky.
      I wonder if the problem is humidity. I don’t know where you live, but if it is moist or really wet, then it could cause any popcorn or these to go soggy. Another solution is to not use TOO much chocolate. I like the recipe I use because it has just the right amount of chocolate to corn pops. I hope these ideas help. Thank you for writing in.
