Since this is the week before Christmas week I can only imagine how crazy busy you must be. With all those plans, parties, and such. So, here I am to offer you a yummy, fun (kid approved) recipe to help tide you over as you rush about.
This is “crazy” because it is so incredibly crazy good popcorn!
I shutter to even admit that when I made this recipe, I had waaaaay to much of it the first two days!
This is best to keep far away from once made, it tends to make you and others turn into grazers . . . as in, every time I walked anywhere near it, I grabbed another handful.
Okay, enough talk, check out this fantabulous funfetti filled popcorn. It is to die for. Okay, not die for, but swoon over for sure!
Crazy Christmas Funfetti Popcorn Delight
When I made this the other day to get ready to share with you, my oldest son tried it when I was finished. He said that it was the absolute best popcorn he has ever eaten in his life. I would completely agree. Delicious and fun to make, therefore making it yet another kid approved treat!
1/2 cup popping popcorn kernels
12 oz bag of white chocolate melts or white chocolate chips
1 1/3 cup of broken pretzel pieces
1 cup of mini m & m’s
1 cup of mini mallow bits
6 oz container of sprinkles
Using a large bowl, pop the popcorn using a popcorn maker. Separate out any unpopped kernels. Add in the pretzels, m & m’s, mallow bits, and half of the sprinkles.
Using a microwave safe container, melt your white chocolate. In 30 second intervals on medium power, melt your chips. Stir well between each 30 second period. Once melted, drizzle half of the chocolate over the popcorn mixture. Stir gently with a rubber spatula to cover the pieces with chocolate. Drizzle the rest of the chocolate, over all of the mixture and gently stir until chocolate coats as much as possible.
Pour the mixture (about half) onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet and add the rest of the sprinkles. Let the chocolate harden completely. Then break up the larger pieces and eat right away or store in a storage bag or airtight container.
Best. Popcorn. Ever.
I have no doubt that this recipe will be just as wonderful next time when I switch up the ingredients!
Wishing you a wonderful, colorful, funfetti filled Christmas y’all. Enjoy this fun popcorn recipe.
In His Grace.
