Gluten-Free Tuesday: Cran-Apple White Chocolate Popcorn

It happens every September. I want a little taste of fall but I'm not ready for serious fall baking. Happily I am always in the mood to pop popcorn. (And even happier: Popcorn is naturally gluten-free.) One day I decided to toss popcorn with white chocolate, dried fruit, and some spices. Success! I had a little taste of fall and I didn't have to turn on the oven.

There are only two ingredient notes for this recipe. I use air-popped popcorn because its plain flavor really allows the white chocolate and spices to shine. And I found peanut-free dried apple slices. If you are peanut-free, you know how challenging it can be to find safe dried fruit.
