I wanted to share with you a simple and delicious Christmas treat that is easy to make and fun to share.
Some people call it “snow”, but I call it “popcorn drizzled with white chocolate and some m&m’s on top”.
Mom said someone brought it to her at work last Christmas and she didn’t eat it right away because she thought it was just popcorn. But when she finally took a bite and tasted the delicious white chocolate, she said she didn’t stop until she ate the whole bag! Then she called me on the phone and said, “Traci, you’ve got to make this!” So, I did.
I agreed that it was dee-li-cious!
Here are the ingredients:
2 bags of natural popcorn (no butter)
1 bag of white chocolate chips
1 bag of Christmas (green and red) M&M’s
Step 1: Pop two bags of popcorn.
Step 2: Cover your work space with wax paper and lay the popcorn in a single layer. (I made this step up. I didn’t like mixing it in a bowl.)
Step 3: Melt chocolate chips in the microwave. (Follow directions on bag.)
Step 4: Lick spoon to make sure the chocolate tastes good. This is a very important step!
Step 5: Drizzle the melted chocolate over the popcorn. I just use my spoon for this step.
Can you say, “Oh my goodness?!”
Step 6: Let the melted chocolate cool and harden.
Step 7: Add the M&M’s and toss!
Step 8: Bag it!
I got those cute Santa bags on clearance last year.
Step 9: Tie them up and add a tag.
Step 10: Share it!
These make great gifts for teachers, neighbors, or your church family.
This recipe makes about 6 or 7 bags. And it cost me about $6.oo to make. Last year I made them for my sons’ PE and music teachers, librarian, office staff, and custodians. I think they enjoy being recognized too, even if it is with something little.
If you wanted to make this for a Christmas party, or just for you and your kids to munch on one night while watching Christmas movies, you can just put it all in a big, cute, Christmas bowl and let everyone dig in! Kids really love this! Who am I kiddin’? Adults love it too!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
