I use a smaller bowl when  you dividing  it up. Make sure what you are stirring in is high and deep. It's a lot of corn and you don't want to make a huge mess

Bake @200 for an hour but stirring the popcorn in each dish EVERY 20 minutes. Do not skip this step or you will have matted together popcorn. I remove from oven and stir well. Three times in the hour

take a spoon and drizzle all the popcorn.  Don't move the corn once the white chocolate has been glazed over. You don't want it coated you just want to see the swirls. Let it sit for about 30 min
