M&M Nutella Popcorn

This Nutella Popcorn is the perfect movie night snack.  You won’t be able to resist eating this sweet and salty treat.

 Last week my husband asked me to make a sweet popcorn munch for one of his church meetings.  He knows I love making popcorn munches.

I’m sure you have noticed how obsessed with fun popcorn I have become.  Have you seen this Reese’s Popcorn,  this Coffee Toffee Popcorn, and this S’mores Popcorn.  Yeah, I love creating (and eating) fun new popcorn.

I decided to cover this popcorn with a healthy coating of white chocolate and Nutella and some salt.  I couldn’t stop eating handfuls of this while it was in our kitchen.  Something kept drawing me back to the bowl for more and more.  And for research purposes, I just kept munching.  This Nutella Popcorn is magical I tell you!

I love a good sweet and salty treat, and this popcorn has both covered.  The salt helps balance out the super sweet coating and M&M candies.   I love how the candy gave it a fun and bright pop of color.  This would be the perfect snack for watching the Oscars this weekend.  You might want to make a double batch if you have anyone else watching with you :-)   I know we will be munching the night away.

This popcorn would also make a great St. Patrick’s day treat.

Yes, I know Valentine’s just ended, but I was over the pink and red, so of course I thought of the next holiday.  The best thing with this popcorn is that you can tint that extra drizzle of chocolate any color for any holiday.  The M&M’s can be changed out for the different holidays too.  I just happen to love those plain mini M&M’s…and it’s what I had in the cupboard that day.

If you are giving this away for St. Patty’s Day, place it in clear plastic bags or jars and tie with a ribbon or some green twine.  Thank you Pick Your Plum for keeping me supplied with fun twine colors.

Game nights and marathon movies are the perfect excuse for making this big batch of Nutella Popcorn.  Really it is a good snack any day or time of the week.

M&M Nutella Popcorn

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 8 cups

M&M Nutella Popcorn

Nutella popcorn gets a fun sweet and salty twist from salt and M&M's.

Ingredients

8 cups popped popcorn
13 oz. white CandiQuik, divided
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup miniature M&M candies, divided
green gel food coloring (I use Wilton)

Instructions

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Place the popcorn in a large bowl. Follow the package directions to melt 12 oz. CandiQuik in the microwave. When melted and smooth, stir in the Nutella. Stir until melted and smooth again. Pour over the popcorn and toss until completely coated. Place popcorn on lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and 1/4 cup M&M's and toss again. Let set in refrigerator for 5 minutes.
  2. Place the remaining 1 oz. CandiQuik in a small bowl and melt. Using a toothpick, add a drop of gel food color to the melted chocolate. Stir. Repeat if you want a darker color. Place in a plastic bag and cut the tip off. Drizzle over set popcorn and sprinkle with the other 1/4 cup M&M's. Let set. Store in a sealed container for 3-5 days. Makes 8 cups.

      I wish I had packaged up a secret stash! Guess that means I just need to make more to stuff my face with! Thanks for the sweet comment :-)

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      First of all…webinar about food trends…how stinking cool is that!! How do you get these crazy awesome connections? Second…popcorn is now a trend…I love that I am so on a trend right now. That never happens :-)

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      Thanks Leslie. Popcorn is the perfect snack to share with others. I can’t wait to hear which one you make and take.

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      I am right there with you and the growing snacking problem…I also have a growing weight problem that comes with enjoying all these yummy treats!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      Believe me it was hard to bag it up and get it out…I seriously wanted to hide in a closet with all of it :-)

    This looks soooo crunchy, sweet, and delicious! The covered popcorn recipes I have tried before all get soggy by the next day. I can’t figure out why you can buy caramel popcorn in bags at the supermarket, but my homemade caramel corn is a sticky mess the next day. I will definitely give this a try! I’d love to be able to mail some of this deliciousness to my son at college.

      Out of Nutella? I don’t know those words :-) I’m thinking you should definitely add Nutella to your shopping list this week…it sounds like your son needs popcorn :-)

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      Actually my hubby doesn’t ask for things too often either, so when he does, I jump all over making it! He isn’t that into sweets, so he doesn’t really ever try the crazy things I make.

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      Too funny…my son just came home from school saying he had to have a pb and nutella sandwich. I’m thinking your son is going to love this popcorn!!!

    Congratulations on being featured on Strut Your Stuff Saturdays at Six Sisters’ Stuff! I am a new follower.

    You need to start a “gourmet-popcorn-of-the-month-club” or something like that. I’m going to the store later and I think white chocolate, popcorn and mini M&M’s just appeared on my shopping list!

      For these I used the smaller baking M&M’s, but you could use any size. Chocolate is chocolate :-)

      • says

        Oh yeah, now that I’ve actually read the recipe — it doesn’t go in the oven hahaaaaa. One more question then I promise I will make it & leave you along — is CandiQuik just the melting candies, like Wilton’s?? I think I only have white chocolate chips — would those work?
        Michelle recently posted..It’s been 9 months ….My Profile

        • Jocelyn Brubaker says

          Yes, CandiQuik is a melting chocolate. You could use the white chocolate chips too, they just don’t set quite as hard as the melting chocolate. It will be ok though! I hope you like the popcorn!!!

  1. [...] M&M Nutella Popcorn from Inside BruCrew Life: I am a serious popcorn lover. I used to just eat it straight up and enjoy it. Caramel corn, yep I’d make it sometime. Then I made that Maple Bacon Caramel Corn with Pecans and realized there was a whole creative popcorn-making world out there. Now I am all about taking popcorn to the next level. So when I saw this popcorn tossed with Nutella and mini M&M’s I knew I needed this in my life. What’s even better? I hit the creative popcorn jackpot!! Jocelyn has all sorts of popcorn recipes on her site like Reese’s Popcorn, Almond Joy Popcorn, Coffee Toffee Popcorn, Banana Crunch Popcorn and believe it or not, EVEN MORE! I’m in heaven! [...]
