Lip-Smacking Popcorn Concoction

Recipe by  

"This is an easy and extremely tasty recipe! Every time I make this, I have people lined up to get the recipe! Cereal, corn chips, pretzels and nuts are coated with a vanilla confectioner's coating (also known as almond bark). This recipe makes a LOT--enough to fill an entire punch bowl and then some! Great for get-togethers."

  1. Cover a large flat surface with waxed paper. In a large bowl, stir together the popcorn, cereal, corn chips, almonds, and pretzels.
  2. Melt the confectioners' coating in a glass bowl in the microwave for 1 minute. Continue to cook at 30 second intervals, stirring between each one, until the coating is smooth.
  3. Pour melted coating over the cereal mixture. It's best to use a large metal spoon, and pour 1 or 2 spoonfuls at a time then mix to ensure even distribution. (A second person can be useful here - one to pour, one to mix.) Once everything is coated, spread the mixture out onto waxed paper in a thin layer. Let stand for about 1/2 hour, or until coating is dry. Transfer to a bowl to serve, or store in an airtight container.

This is some really good stuff!! I didn't use the cereal puffs or corn chips since they weren't in my pantry, so I worked with what I had onhand. I used 3 regular sized bags microwave popcorn, 2 cups holiday shaped pretzels, about a cup roasted peanuts, and 1.5 pounds (the whole package) vanilla almond bark. To mix, I turned the lid to my round cake taker/keeper upside down and dumped everything into it and it worked perfectly. Mixed with a large wooden spoon, then poured everything onto parchment paper to dry. Couldn't be easier and absolutely delicious! Thanks so much for a great recipe! :o) UPDATE 12/1/08: For the kids at church, I leave out the peanuts and use M&Ms instead. We've made this by the tons for VBS and other kid functions and they LOVE it!!

Sounded great & the online reviews were glowing. I was sold with "never have leftovers". But... I had leftovers - practically the entire batch. Eleven teens barely touched this. Some girls ate it when I prompted late in the night. Anybody who said they liked it got a full bag to take home with 'em.

YUM! This is really good--a perfect mix of salty and sweet. I only used 1 bag of popcorn, as the biggest bowl I had was already overflowing. It still came out just fine. And a second person is definitely helpful, although next time I make this, I think I will divide the ingredients between 2 bowls to manage it easier.

I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe! It's amazing - I made it for a baby shower and it disappeared! Beware, it makes A LOT and you will be asked for the recipe! One change I tried was to add food coloring to the almond bark (pink for the baby shower) and it turned out very nice.

I've been making this popcorn for years. I try different concoctions all the time. Sometimes I just use the popcorn and almond bark with no other ingredients. My favorite way now is popcorn, almond bark, coconut and chopped macadamia nuts. It might even be good with dried cranberries thrown into the mix. Yum! Yum!

This was awesome, and so easy! I don't really like Kix or Fritos, so I used popcorn, pretzels, M&Ms, rice Chex, and almonds. Couldn't find "confectioners' coating", but plain white chocolate chips worked just fine. Since I didn't have an assistant, I poured the chocolate with one hand while using tongs to toss the mix with the other hand, and that seemed to work pretty well. Great recipe!

I used this as a base recipe and WOW! This stuff is amazing. I used white almond bark, dried cranberries, chopped macadamia nuts, pretzel sticks, and milk chocolate M&Ms. It is so addictive! I made it to package for Christmas goodies, but I better make another batch for myself or else I'm going to eat the gifts!

Super yummy recipe... hits the salty/sweet craving perfectly. A couple notes: 1- The vanilla confectioner's coating is a seasonal thing... couldn't find in 3 grocery stores (and I refused to use the White Chocolate); so I substituted in premium white chips. In making half the recipe, one 12 oz. package of the white chips worked perfectly. 2-I used whole almonds, just a preference... liked it fine. 3-For anyone confused on getting butter-free popcorn, be assured you can still get plain, no butter SALTED popcorn in the bag and this works great... or you could go old style and make your own on the stove! Enjoy!
