This one is inspired by my fantasitcally creative Mother-in-law. She makes a cute little treats for the girls for just about every holiday/season. She has made different kinds of chocolate covered popcorn and I thought it'd be fun to make a Spring inspired mix. I love the Spring. And the colors are the preface to the the colors of summer.
So here's the recipe. I made 4 double batches in about one and a half hours. So a small/normal batch is a snap!
Chocolate Covered Popcorn
1 bag Merkens Chocolate...the disks (3 cups)
2 bags butter popcorn
1-2 cups mini-marshmallows
Pop the popcorn as directed and try to get out as many kernels the best you can. I keep the popcorn in a huge bowl. And combine with the marshmallows. Melt the chocolate using your defrost feature on the microwave or a double boiler. Once smooth, pour on top of the popcorn and cover the popcorn stiring gentley trying not to break the popcorn. Pour the mixture on to wax paper. Once cooled break apart and enjoy. Have fun experimenting with different colors for seasons, party favors for baby showers and fun little gifts for friends.
