Popcorn Snack Mix

I’m planning on making up another big batch of this popcorn mix and enjoying it with a movie. It’s super easy to put together and fun to eat! When you make this, you need to use stove popped popcorn. Stove top popcorn is amazing, quick, easy, and so much better for you than the packaged version. I actually used coconut oil and it was perfect! Coconut oil has a high smoke rate, so it’s perfect for this. Olive oil has a very low smoke point, so it would actually burn before the kernels had time to pop.

Don’t leave out the peanuts! You’ll need something salty in this mix to help balance out all the chocolate. I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate, but overload is still overload. You need something salty to help you appreciate the sweet. This would make a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day! It lasts for about a week in a zip top bag (but it won’t last that long…at least ours didn’t).

This has become my new favorite snack, and while normally popcorn is fairly low calorie, I wouldn’t exactly call this healthy…just addicting. So, it’s best to think of it more as a dessert.   Now that I know exactly how easy making popcorn on the stove it, I don’t think I’ll ever buy the microwave stuff again! I know you’ll love this just as much as I did.

Prep Time: 45 minutes   Total Time: 45 minutes
Makes: about 16 cups
 
Ingredients:
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
1/2 cup of popcorn kernels
4 ounces of white baking chocolate
2 ounces of semi sweet baking chocolate
1 cup of peanuts
1 cup of m&ms
 
Directions:
1) In a 4 quart pot, heat the oil and kernels. Make the popcorn according to package directions.
2) When the popcorn is finished, lay it out on parchment paper lining a large cookie sheet. You want the popcorn to be fairly flat.
3) Melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 20 second intervals to make sure you don't burn it. When it is melted, take a spoon and drizzle over the popcorn. Melt the semi sweet chocolate in the same way, and then drizzle. Let the chocolate harden before mixing with the peanuts and m&ms.
4) When the popcorn is ready, add the popcorn, peanuts, and m&ms to a large zip top baggie and shake to combine.
