Halloween Popcorn Mix – Monster Munch

Monster Munch… or white chocolate covered popcorn with candy corn, peanuts, and peanut butter candies. But MoNsTeR mUnCh sounds way more fun, right? Popcorn mixes are so great for holiday celebrations. They make a ton, pleases everyone, and involves no cooking! Can’t beat that. This Halloween popcorn mix combines sweet and salty – a combo I LOVE.

Ingredient Notes

  • Almond Bark – If you’ve never bought almond bark before, you can find it in most normal grocery stores in the baking aisle. It’s usually by the chocolate chips on either the very top or very bottom shelves (why? I know not). It comes in a 1lb brick, scored into squares and it melts really easily in the microwave or stove top. It tastes like white chocolate, but is much easier to work with.
  • Popcorn – either air popped corn or buttered microwave popcorn work great here. If you use air popped corn, just add a little sprinkle of salt at the end when you mix everything up.

How to Make Monster Much

  1. Pop popcorn and place in a very large bowl. Much larger than you think you need. The largest you have. It will make mixing easier! Pour peanuts, candy corn, and Reese’s Pieces on top.popcorn with reces and peanuts mixed in
  2. Take a large knife and break up almond bark. Melt according to package directions. I just chop it up a little and microwave it in intervals until smooth and melted. Pour over popcorn mixture.Pouring Almond Bark over a bowl of popcorn and candy
  3. Stir until everything is well coated and then spread out onto waxed paper, parchment, or foil. Let sit until completely dry and then break up into clumps.

FAQs

  • I have food allergies/ don’t like these add ins. Can I sub in something else? Don’t knock it until you try it (peanuts and candy corn are a surprisingly tasty combo!), but yes, the beautiful thing about popcorn mixes is that you can put whatever your heart desires in there! Feel free to change up the nuts, use M&Ms or chocolate chips instead of Reese’s Pieces, etc. Add in some cute Halloween sprinkles to keep it festive.
