How to Make Halloween Popcorn Mix
First, melt the candy melts and white chocolate in the microwave or on the stove over medium heat. Follow the package directions for best results.
Next, spread the popcorn on a baking tray lined with wax paper. Make sure to remove un-popped kernels. Then, add the pretzels.
Drizzle some melted white chocolate all over -- That's your sweet!
Stir it up so that the melted chocolate holds everything together. Then, sprinkle your favorite Halloween candy all over the mix.
For extra color, drizzle melted candy coating all over the popcorn mixture.
We used a blend of orange and purple candy melts -- you want the colors to really pop!
Finally, add some fun Halloween sprinkles and googly eyes for extra sparkle.
Let the Monster Munch firm up for about 30 minutes. You can pop the tray into the fridge or leave it on the counter until everything is dry and firm enough to handle.
Then, carefully break up the popcorn mixture with your hands. Place it into a large bowl, and you're ready to dig in!
It's salty, sweet and very delicious. Once you start munching on this sweet treat, it's hard to stop!
It's super easy to customize this monster Halloween popcorn. Use your favorite Halloween candies -- Reese's pieces, gummy worms and candy pumpkins are delicious additions.
You can add crushed Oreo cookies and miniature marshmallows to this easy Halloween treat for even more flavor.
Instead of plain popcorn, use caramel popcorn, kettle corn or your favorite popcorn flavor.
