{Pinned} White Chocolate M & M Popcorn

These were the party favors from my daughter's recent party.
 I pinned the idea here from this blog.  It looked easy to make and exceedingly yummy.
It only required 3 ingredients, what could be easier?
 Pop a big pot of popcorn-I like white popcorn so that's what I used.
 Dump it into a big bowl.  I love this thrifted bowl!
 Add some salt if you like, I thought sweet and salty, yes please!
Melt a package of almond bark.  This stuff melts up really nicely.
Add a bag of  M & M's to the popcorn and pour the melted almond bark on top, reserving some for later.
Stir gently to coat.
Pour the mixture out onto a parchment covered baking sheet and drizzle with remaining melted bark.
Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
 We wrapped it up in clear cups and cellophane with ribbon.
 I also added a thank you sticker with a baby picture of the birthday girl that I designed on Avery.com.
You can adapt this to any holiday or occasion by using different colored m & m's  and/or almond bark.

Seriously??!! This looks amazingly addictive. I think you'd have to portion it all out in cups otherwise I'd eat it all in one sitting!

Thanks so much for linking up!

That looks so yummy and is not on my diet. Darn it!

Mrs. Great Indoors said...

This looks amazing, and probably way too addicting. I bet you could add just about anything to this mix, which makes it even more dangerous. Great job, and thanks for linking up to the Winter Pinterest Challenge!
