Snowflake Crunch Popcorn - 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats (Week 6)


Last week we were enjoying near 80 degree weather with lots of sunshine. This week, we've had freezing temperatures, rain, sleet, and even snow. It's not very often we get snow in October. I'm not ready for this! I finally put away my flip flops and got out my socks. My daughter wondered why my feet were all brown. I guess she isn't used to me wearing socks, either :)

So now that the cold and snow are here, I thought this Snowflake Crunch Popcorn would make a fitting treat for Week 6 of the 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats. It's not too late to join in the fun! Thanks to Brenda, from Meal Planning Magic,  for hosting every week. And make sure you check out the rest of the treats linked below!

This would make an easy and delicious gift for teachers, coworkers, neighbors, etc. You could change this up with different colored sprinkles and m&m's for different occasions, too.

Ingredients:
  • 1 bag popcorn, popped (remove the unpopped kernels)
  • blue m&m's
  • 3-4 blocks of white almond bark (I used 1/2 bag white chocolate chips melted)
  • blue sprinkles
Directions:
Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. With the popcorn in a large bowl, pour the melted chocolate over the top and gently stir to coat. Mix in the blue m&m's and sprinkles.  Gently stir until mixture is coated evenly. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper and let cool. Once it's cool, break apart any large pieces and serve!

So simple and I love it. I made some white chocolate popcorn that used Orville Reddenbacher's Lime & Salt microwave popcorn a couple months ago. The lime and white chocolate was delicious. Love the blue hint in yours. Such a perfect thing for gifts!
