Cupid's Munch Mix

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. Today we made Cupid's Munch Mix to share with family and friends.

First we combined a bag of microwave popcorn, pretzels, Valentine's Day candy corn, m&m's, and peppermint mini marshmallows in a large bowl. Be sure to take out any unpopped kernels from your popcorn.

Miss M wanted to show us the mixture in the bowl. Next, melt one 12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips in the microwave. Start with 30 second increments, stirring after each time until chocolate is smooth. It took about 2 minutes total in my microwave.

Pour the chocolate over the popcorn mixture in the bowl. Stir to cover mixture with chocolate. Spread on a foil lined cookie sheet. Let cool until hard.

This is what it looked like after drying for about 2 hours. Break into pieces and store in an air tight container. Enjoy!

Cupid's Munch Mix

1 package Light Microwave Popcorn (3.3 Ounce Package)
1 cup Pretzels
1 cup Valentine M&ms
1 cup Valentine Candy Corn
1 cup Mini Marshmallows (I used peppermint since they were pink and white swirled)
1- 12 ounce package White Chocolate Chips

Pop the popcorn in the microwave according to package directions. Remove any unpopped kernels. Pour the popcorn into a large mixing bowl. Add the pretzels, candy and marshmallows and mix to combine.
Melt the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl on medium power for 30 second increments. Stir well after each 30 second heating. Continue heating until chocolate is melted and smooth. Pour melted chocolate over the popcorn mixture. Stir well to coat. Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet and allow chocolate to harden. Break apart and serve.


~peace and blessings~
