Easter Popcorn Crunch and Munch!

So the other day I was shopping at Target…
is there any better place to be shopping?
Given all the stores in my area,
Target is almost always the first place
to start for some shopping magic.I’ve said it before…
and I still stand by it…
I think there is magic time dust in the air there.
Because it is like time stands still for me…
of course then I leave and realize that 4 hours have passed,
and I don’t have time to go to any other stores:-)

I was wandering in the Easter candy aisle
and I came upon what I thought would be a yummy little treat.
Have you seen the Peepsters???
They say dark chocolate covered marshmallow creme…
apparently I was in lala land and missed the word “creme”.
I picked up a bag of them envisioning
yummy chocolate covered marshmallow peeps…
my bubble got popped as soon as I ate one.
They weren’t horrible…
just not what I was expecting.

So I decided to raid my cupboards and use them
up in some sort of popcorn munch…
because everything becomes better
when covered in more chocolate.

Can I get an amen on that? :-)

One one my shopping ventures where I skipped Target…
it is the only way I can get to other stores:-)…
I found big bags of sixlets at the $ Store.
These are like a blast from my past.
I actually remember buying these
at a small Five and Dime store when I was way younger.
Does anyone else remember .5 and .10 stores?
I know I’m not that old.
But it was a blast as a kid to be able to buy lots of candy
for little money…
because little money is what I always had!

Anyway, back to the munch mix…

Ingredients
  • 6 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 c. peanuts
  • 1 c. sixlets
  • 1 bag peepsters, chopped up
  • 1 c. melted white chocolate
Instructions
Lay the popcorn out on a wax paper lined baking sheet…preferably the biggest one you have. Drizzle with 1/2 c. melted white chocolate. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the peanuts, sixlets, and peepsters. Toss with your hands…prepare to be a mess. Drizzle with more white chocolate and sprinkle the rest of the candy on top. Toss again. Place the tray in your refrigerator, so that it sets up even faster, because you want to munch on it right away:-) Store leftovers in a tightly sealed container.

    This recipe looks amazing. I love amped up popcorn. Yes, I do remember Sixlets–they were my penny candy of choice! Have a great day.

    Looks quite yummy. I’m not a fan of most easter candy, especially peeps. (Texture issue) I’ll have to show this recipe to hubs.

    Yummy! I feel the same way about Target, and definitely experience that magical timewarp when I’m there as well.

    I love the way you turned the peep-tastrophe into another wonderful treat sensation!

    Your posts are always a highlight of my “A Little Birdie Told Me…” visits!
