Recipe Thursday-Holiday Popcorn

Posted on October 28th, 2010 | Posted in Dessert, Recipes

Since Halloween is just around the corner and we are still in National Popcorn Poppin’ Month I decided to go in a festive holiday direction! This Holiday Popcorn recipe was gifted to me for many years, around any holiday that M&M’s made a festive color mix, and since I no longer live near my friend Becky who introduced it to me, I decided it’s time to make it myself.  It’s such a simple and tasty recipe that everyone must try. I made this batch for a tailgating outing.  Please disregard the regular colored M&M’s in this picture, my grocery store let me down by not carrying M&M’s Harvest Blend mix, but hopefully the mini jack-o-lantern makes up for it:).

Holiday Popcorn

Yield 7 Quarts


3 bags microwave popcorn
8 oz m&m’s (BD0230)
1 12oz-bag white chocolate chips


Pop microwave popcorn. Empty the popped popcorn into a large bowl while sifting out any unpopped kernals.  Melt white chocolate according to package.  Mix melted chocolate over popcorn and then add the M&M’s.  Spread the holiday popcorn onto wax paper and let cool.  Store in airtight container.
