This highly addictive mix is quick and easy to throw together, using popcorn, candy coating or almond bark, and your favorite combination of pretzels, nuts and candy.
You can use almond bark, white chocolate chips, or candy melts. I like CandiQuik for the convenience of the blocks of bark and the microwave disposable tray.
No recipe required for this sweet and salty treat!
Pop your corn using your preferred method and mix with your candy coating. As a guideline, for 5 – 6 cups of popcorn I use a 16 ounce package of candy coating/ almond bark. You can adjust your candy coating-to-popcorn ratio to your taste.
Melt candy coating according to package directions and toss in a large bowl with your popcorn. Mix until coated and spread popcorn on wax paper or parchment lined baking sheet(s) to cool and set.
Sprinkle some Valentine nonpareils on the white chocolate coated popcorn while the coating is still warm.
Once your popcorn is set (about 15- 20 minutes), break into pieces. Stir in nuts, pretzels and candy of choice.
I highly recommend the love-inducing mix
of red, pink, and white M&M’s :)
Serve in snack cups or package up in treat bags for gift giving.
Store the remainder in an airtight container or jar and enjoy! You can adjust this blend for any holiday or occasion.
