Lucky Charms Chocolate Covered Popcorn

Chocolate covered popcorn gets a fun twist when it is mixed with cereal, marshmallows, and candies.

 We have a new person in our house.  His name is “I didn’t do it”.  Sometimes he even goes by “It wasn’t me”.

All three kids have come to rely on him when some thing has happened that no one wants to claim.  The thing is that “I didn’t do it” and “It wasn’t me” has been used so much lately, so now everyone loses out when he shows up.  Losing technology is a great way to motivate “I didn’t do it” to leave.

Who left the shower curtain open?  “I didn’t do it.”
Who knocked over the shelf of books and videos?  “It wasn’t me.”
Who ate all the marshmallows out of the cereal? “I didn’t do it.” “It wasn’t me.”

Hhhhmmm…I guess no one will be watching tv or playing video games for a very long time…or at least until this new person has left our house.  Gotta love this day in age when losing technology is painful.  It works better than any other punishment.

Lucky for you, I got to the box of Lucky Charms before anyone else this time.  Those cute little marshmallows just seem to disappear before anything else.  Our boxes definitely never have enough of those fun marshmallows.

To entice everyone to actually eat the cereal part, I covered it in white chocolate.  Chocolate definitely makes everything better.  Even cereal.  Then I tossed it with some chocolate covered popcorn, those elusive marshmallows, and some green Sixlets.  It is the perfect snack to munch on for movie night or to eat whenever you have a sweet craving.  Feel free to use whatever chocolate is your favorite on the popcorn.  We like dark chocolate, but white chocolate would be good too.

Just a warning…the marshmallows still disappear first in this too :-)  I’m guessing “I didn’t do it” got to it first.

    I had to stop buying Lucky Charms because the marshmallows get picked out and no none wants to eat the cereal! Drives me nuts! And yes, the threat of losing technology does wonders! This is too fun Jocelyn! There is something for everyone in this popcorn!

    Oh no! I think that person sometimes us as well. It Wasn’t Me will probably eat handfuls of this and get it crumbs everywhere and then grudgingly pull out the vacuum. It’s much harder to throw blame when there’s only two of us!
    It Wasn’t Me loves that you combined chocolate and lucky charms. This would be gone from our house in a day. We’re mad for chocolate-covered snack mixes.

    Duuuuude, that person lives in my house, too! And it doubles as a moody sixteen year old girl half of the time. Sometimes, that person also invites the evil twin “I WON’T do it” along and that’s even more fun. “Did you feed the dogs?” “No, I didn’t, you can though!” RRRRR. NO POPCORN FOR YOU, evil twin!

    BTW, this popcorn looks amazing!!
