Make a delicious and fun snack to share with the family. Don’t pay $5 for one small tin! Make a large amount for so much cheaper.

Ingredients: 

  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 3/4 cup chocolate candies, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups fudge mint cookies, chopped & divided
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • 1/4 cup green candy melts (Wilton)
  • 3 Tablespoons sprinkles
  • wax paper
  • cookie tray
  • 3 bowls
  • baking spatula
  • plastic sandwich bag

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine popcorn, marshmallows, 1/2 cup chocolate candies, and 1 cup fudge mint cookies pieces. Crush the extra 1/2 cup cookies into crumbs, then set aside with the extra chocolate candies.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the white chips and shortening. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Pour over popcorn mixture and toss until everything is coated. Spread out on a wax paper lined cookie tray. Sprinkle with the crushed cookies and the extra 1/4 cup chocolate candies. Let set.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, heat the green candy melts like the directions in #2. Spoon into a plastic bag and cut the tip off one corner. Drizzle over the cooling popcorn, then top with sprinkles. Allow to fully set before eating.
