I first made this recipe for a twin-mom convention and everyone went crazy for the salty-sweet, addictiveness of this. It is just popcorn, white chocolate, crushed corn-chips, and candy (you can mix this part up!). Done. Salty and sweet. Very easy and delicious. It is a favorite of my kids, when it’s made in it’s purest form: with M&M’s. I am totally okay with that. But for the holidays, I think we need green and red m&ms…and in this case I used the Mint M&M’s. Well. Yes.
Pop the popcorn, melt the chocolate, crush the chips, add the candy. Let’s do this.
There are lots of variations of this recipe, bu the one I base mine on is from Your Homebased Mom:
Winter White-Chocolate Salty-Sweet Popcorn
I love to make a big bowl of this "special" popcorn for the kids when they have a movie-night- It is easy,and a special change from our normal snacking~
- 8 cups popped corn
- 6 oz. white chocolate chips
- 2 big handfuls of crushed corn chips (like Fritos or Bugles, not tortilla!)
- 1 cup red and green M&Ms candies, regular or mint flavored.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Set aside.
In an oversized bowl, mix your popcorn and crushed chips.
Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe dish until soft, and stir until smooth (Mine takes 2-3 minutes on 50%power, stirring half-way).
Pour the chocolate over the popcorn and mix with a rubber spatula.
Add the M&M's.
Spread in an even layer on the baking sheet and let sit until it hardens (usually 30 minutes).
Break into chunks and serve!
Change up the colors of the M&M's for the holiday: Blue for Hanukkah, or green for St.Patrick's Day- kind of a little treat!
