I want to give home made gifts by giving out towers of goodies.. I plan to make white chocolate macadamia cookies with dried cherries, rum mini bundt cake, and perhaps something like gourmet popcorn or fancy chocolate covered pretzels. I figure the popcorn or pretzels can be made ahead. The last time I tried making gourmet popcorn, turned out to be a mess. The corn syrup/sugar mixture was hot and barely enough to coat the popcorn. Then the white chocolate and chocolate did not drizzle liked I had hoped but formed clumps instead. Anyone know how to make those colorful or gourmet chocolate popcorn? I found some internet recipes that says to use flavored jello powder packets?
