Halloween is always a fun time of the year. Making popcorn snack mix is one of the easiest snacks to make and it’s inexpensive. You can make a large amount for very little.
Simplicity is often the way to go when party planning and this Halloween Movie Night Chocolate Popcorn Snack Mix is both party worthy and great for family movie nights. You can also make small packages for party gifts.
Simple ingredients are all you need. Of course popcorn, either homemade or store bought; white and/or milk chocolate candy melts; color candy melts and an assortment of sprinkles and smaller size halloween candy for crunch.
Halloween Movie Night Chocolate Popcorn Snack Mix
- 10 cups of popcorn - or use 2 large bags of your favorite popcorn
- 1/2 cup of green candy melts
- 1/2 cup of orange candy melts
- 1/2 cup of white chocolate candy melts
- 1/4 tsp. shortening for each chocolate you melt -I used Nutiva coconut palm shortening (do not use butter/margarine/oil)
#1. Prepare the popcorn according to package directions. If using your favorite prepared popcorn, lay out the popped pop corn on parchment lined baking sheet. You can also choose to use a large bowl if you prefer.
#2. Melt each chocolate individually, using double boiler method or the microwave. I used the microwave for this recipe. Melt the chocolate at 20 second intervals, stirring after each interval. The chocolate might still be solid, that’s o.k., just keep stirring until it all melts. If there are still a few solid pieces of chocolate, return to microwave for 10 seconds and stir until melted. If the chocolate is too hot it will seize and will not be spreadable.
#3. Using a fork drizzle the melted chocolate over the popcorn. Add as much or as little as you choose. After each color chocolate you drizzle then add holiday sprinkles and small candy. Let the chocolate dry for a few minutes. Using a wooden spoon stir the popcorn to break up the chunks then add the next color chocolate.
#4. Continue until you have covered the popcorn with all the chocolate and added all the little candy and sprinkles you wish.
Feel free to add in your family favorites - pretzels, nuts, etc. Add additional melted chocolate if you wish.
Our family enjoys popcorn snacks so I often make a popcorn snack mix to fit the season. The kids like to pick out their favorite candies to add in as well. We enjoy the snack mix while we are watching a movie or playing a board game usually during the winter months.
Halloween Movie Night Chocolate Popcorn Snack Mix is a fun snack to enjoy during this holiday season with family and friends.
