Popcorn mixes are fun to make, a yummy treat and perfect if you need a sweet snack for a crowd! This Chocolate & Vanilla Drizzled Fall Popcorn Mix has a great blend of textures and flavors to really get your taste buds singing – sweet and salty, soft and crunchy. I’m giving this out tomorrow at my office party – it was huge hit last year! A big bowl of this mix makes a good football watching snack – or make a big jar for your Thanksgiving hostess or treat bags for your guests.
You can use your imagination to mix up whatever flavors you like – to get you started, here’s what I used in my popcorn mix. I made a huge batch, so you can adjust the quantity. Regular popcorn that you pop on the stove or in a hot air popper makes this more economical and CandiQuik, which tastes delicious and melts perfectly in its own microwavable tray, makes it fast and easy!
- 2 ½ cups popcorn kernels, popped
- 6-8 tablespoons butter, melted
- Salt, to taste
- 2 bags Reese’s Pieces
- 1 large bag of miniature marshmallows
- 1 large jar of dry roasted peanuts
- 1 large bag of candy corn
- 1 package each, chocolate and vanilla flavored CandiQuik
I used 16” and 14” cake pans to mix this all up! Melt butter and pour over popcorn, adding salt to taste, and mix well. The butter adds an extra dimension of flavor! Add Reese’s pieces, marshmallows, peanuts and candy corn.
Melt both trays of CandiQuik in the microwave according to package directors and stir until smooth. If candy starts to harden, you can melt it again! Alternating chocolate and vanilla, drizzle generous amounts of melted candy over sections of the popcorn mix and stir well. Continue drizzling and stirring until popcorn mix is well covered. Let candy covered popcorn sit until candy covering is set. Store in airtight containers or Ziploc bags.
This stuff – is addicting! Popcorn mixes not only make tasty snacks, they transform into a great holiday food gift or party favor. Change up the ingredients for the season or event! Check out my Merry Mix from last Christmas – an easy way to whip up a batch of gifts for friends, co-workers or neighbors – or my Baby Mix, which makes a cute and tasty shower favor.
I think my co-workers will be happy to see the bags of this Chocolate & Vanilla Drizzled Fall Popcorn Mix tomorrow! I’m off to put a little holiday touch to these bags. Thank you so much for visiting and have a delicious day!
Sharing at these great parties!
