Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. It is something I always keep on hand in the pantry so when the urge strikes for something crunchy, I know I can always count on some popcorn to give me my fix! Did you know that October is National Popcorn Popping month? I didn't either but of course you know I had to jump on board and Dress Up Your Popcorn for Halloween! This Monster Munch is so easy to throw together and easily customized to your likes (or allergy needs). All the little ghosts and goblins will be full of smiles while they munch away.
Growing up my best friends great grandmother lived right beside us. She stayed over at her house a lot so we were able to hang out and have fun all the time. You know this was back before cartoons were on ALL the time and before technology took over the minds of the young. (I know I am dating myself)
Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. Trick or Treating was always so fun in our little neighborhood. Our parents would dress us up and let us run the neighborhood to collect all the loot. It was a great time back then, all the neighbors gave out candy so we always came home with a ton to eat on for months. And of course we ran to each house so there were tons of trips and falls along the way. I can only imagine the amount of candy that was left in ditches and in yards where we fell. Fun and laughter made it simply the best!
If you are planning a Halloween party this year. Make sure to add this Monster Munch to the menu. I promise all those kids will dig in (and adults too!)
4- 5 cups of popped popcorn
2 cups of pretzel twists
1/2 cup of Reese's Pieces
White almond bark
Chocolate almond bark
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Mix in the pretzels and candy pieces. Melt almond bark according to package directions (separately). You won't need to use the entire block, just one or two squares each. Drizzle almond bark all over. Place the eyeballs and sprinkles into the almond bark before it hardens. Add as much or as little as you like. Allow to cool. You can place in the freezer to speed up the process. Break up and add to a big bowl and dig in.
