Drive-In Popcorn Mix!


Tummy Tuesday is in honor of going to the Drive-In this weekend!  We are grateful that one, fun, Drive-In remains in our local area.  They recently renovated it to reflect the “old time” traditions and the kids love the experience.  As teenagers, they still think watching the hot dog jump into the bun is the neatest thing!

32 ounces of popped popcorn;        1 lb. white or milk chocolate melting wafers;   1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts;      3/4 cup mini Reece’s Pieces;                              1/2 cup of M&Ms;   waxed paper;   Kosher salt


Melt chocolate and pour over popcorn in a large mixing bowl. Stir to cover all popcorn.  This amount of chocolate provides a very heavy coating to the popcorn.  Add peanuts, Reece’s Pieces and M&Ms.  Coat all ingredients carefully.  Pour mixture onto waxed paper, spread mixture out into a single layer.  Sprinkle Kosher salt lightly over mix.  Once the chocolate hardens, break up, and place into a covered storage container, gift jars, or zip lock snack bags. Tips: add marshmallows, use peanut M&Ms or any other candy pieces. Delete nuts as needed for allergies.  Use red/green for Christmas; yellow/orange for Halloween (adding candy corn is yummy)!
