White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn Party Mix
- neutral cooking oil
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernals
- 1 bag of M&M’s
- 2 cups mini pretzels
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 to 2 packages of white chocolate chips (see note)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Pop popcorn using desired method.
For stove-top, add three kernals of popcorn to a large pan. Add enough oil (a tablespoon or two) to come almost halfway up the sides of the kernals. Turn heat to medium high.
When the three kernals pop, add the rest of the popcorn, cover and shake continuously as the popcorn pops. When there is a second (one-one thousand) between pops, remove from heat and immediately pour into a very large bowl or pan, or divide into two large ones.
Add in the pretzels, M&M’s and mini-marshmallows and toss.
Melt chocolate in the microwave. Start with a one minute increment, then stir and place back in the microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. If not melted, heat for another 30 seconds & stir. Repeat until melted.
Drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn mixture and mix well with a large spoon, spatula or clean hands. Spread out onto two large sheet pans lined with waxed paper, parchment or foil. Sprinkle with salt. Allow to sit until the chocolate has hardened, break apart and eat.
Note: if your white chocolate, after melting, is still too thick to drizzle, whisk in a tablespoon or two of milk.
