Hello Popcorn loving friends!
My girls love any excuse to make something in the kitchen, but sometimes the work of finding a recipe that's simple enough for them to help with can be overwhelming!!
Below is our go-to recipe when the girls want to help make popcorn. Can I let you in on a secret? (We use the exact same recipe for each holiday and simply change out the color of the M&Ms and sprinkles! Shhhh!)
Sweet & Salty White Chocolate Easter Popcorn
16 cups plain popcorn, popped
12 oz white chocolate chips or almond bark
1 cup M & M’s chocolate candies (pastel)
1 cup mini pretzels
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup chex cereal
1/2 cup salted peanuts
sprinkles (Easter, pastel colors)
Pour popcorn into a large bowl.
Mix in the M & M’s, pretzels, mini marshmallows, chex cereal, and peanuts. Add in sprinkles to taste.
Place white chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Cook for 45 seconds, remove from microwave, and stir. Continue cooking at 25 second intervals, stirring each time, until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Drizzle chocolate over popcorn mixture and gently mix until most pieces are covered with chocolate.
Spread out on a large jelly roll pan (or cookie sheet) until white chocolate hardens.
Store in an airtight container.
Note: recipe can be customized for any occasion (different colored M&M's for different holidays). Add or subtract ingredients as desired.
