This is one that the kiddos would have fun making, assuming that they are old enough to reach the microwave. I made my popcorn in the microwave {in brown paper bags} and dumped it into a LARGE bowl, you want lots of space for mixing.

Recipe ingredients:

Popped popcorn, green and purple candy melts, m&ms, sprinkles, candy eyes and pretzel sticks.
  • Popped popcorn made in whatever way works for you.
  • Vibrant Green candy melts for the popcorn, and Violet candy melts for the pretzel sticks. You could also use regular pretzels, or the squares.
  • Halloween colored sprinkles come in all different shapes and colors. I decided to stick with the traditional colors; green, purple, orange, and black. They include jimmies and small pearls, as well as the candy eyes.
  • Halloween M&Ms or any other candy coated chocolates.

How to make Monster Mash Popcorn:

Place the green candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Heat on HIGH for one minute, stir and heat for an additional minute. Stir and continue heating and stirring in 15 second intervals until the candy is melted and smooth.

Dip the pretzel sticks into the melted chocolate, remove and place on a silicone mat or parchment paper. Set aside and allow the chocolate to set.

Recipe modifications:

  • I almost grabbed the purple candy melts so I could call it Purple People Eater Popcorn, but I just can’t pass up the color green! Use any color that you like.
  • If you like more candies in your mix, add more, add nuts, add whatever you like. Have fun with it.
  • I added purple sugar to some of the pretzels for fun, you could also use a totally different color like black or orange.
  • I left my pretzels whole, but you could also break them in half if you prefer smaller pieces.

Recipe Notes & Tips:

  • If chocolate will not melt, mix in a bit of solid shortening and continue stirring. Start with a teaspoon and slowly go up from there. Do not add too much or it may not set properly.
  • You can store the popcorn in an airtight container on the counter for at least a week, assuming it lasts that long.
