There is a debate that goes on in our household
every year about this time.
It is the question of,
what color lights go on our tree?
Unfortunately, I am the only one who wants white lights,
so that makes me the bad guy.
This year my husband wanted to put the white lights on…
and then put the colored lights on too.
Now in my head this sounded like a bad idea,
but no way was I going to admit that.

We put the white lights on and I went
to get the colored strand when he stopped me.
He was only half kidding.
The other half just wanted to see if I would concede!
Major bonus points for actually being willing
to go through with something that I wasn’t
entirely happy with it.
My snowman tree is very happy with this decision too…
they were getting scared of a huge colored mess :-)

Speaking of a huge colored mess…
how about some REESE’S popcorn munch?
Any treat that consists of THREE kinds of chocolate
and THREE kinds of Reese’s is an A+ in my book.
This is definitely going on my Christmas treat list.
I sure hope all my friends and family like Reese’s,
because they are getting cute packages of this amazing popcorn!!!

    Oh YUM! I love Reeses anything…I love the addition of the cereal. I’m white lights all the way…although I have a strand of only red ones because red’s my favorite :)

  2. says

    This is a great snack for the holidays-not many people could resist this flavor combo with popcorn! Yum!
    Kudos to you for being so compromising on the lights, even if it was his way of testing you!

  3. says

    When I was a kid there was no debate about Christmas lights as the lights were the same size as the lights which hung outside; Big. Anything with Reeses is golden in my book

    This looks soooo good! I love “souped up” popcorn :) One year I took colored lights and put them on the inside of the tree – down the middle with white lights on the outside…it was pretty! Now I try to have 2 trees, so I don’t have to decide!

    Kill me now! That sounds incredible. My kids love popcorn and Reese’s, so I’m thinking I need to make this for them…that’s if I don’t eat it all first!

      We actually have a whirly pop and pop our own popcorn, but you could definitely use microwave popcorn in this. I just would choose a variety with less butter!

    This looks fabulous! I’m thinking of making to give to teachers, but I’m wondering what size bag of the Reese’s cups you used. I’ve seen them in the stand up bags (8oz) and also in “king size” 2.5oz bags. Please help! Thanks!
