Firecracker Popcorn Treat

Yum
FIRECRACKER POPCORN TREAT
Here's a last minute treat that you can throw together for your 4th of July party.  It sure is quick to make and it sure won't last long.  Serve at your own party or prepare a jar full to bring to another party.  Either way, it is quite a yummy treat!

You will need:

1 microwave bag size of popped popcorn
1 package of star shaped marshmallows
1 package of red, white and blue candy covered almonds
1 package of white chocolate chips

In a large bowl, mix together popped popcorn, marshmallows and candy covered almonds.  In a small microwave safe bowl, melt 1 package of white chocolate chips on high for 30 seconds.  Stir and repeat the process of melting the white chocolate chips on high at 30 second intervals until melted.
Once melted, pour over the popcorn mixture and toss gently to coat the popcorn.  Pour entire mixture out on a sheet of waxed paper and let the white chocolate harden.  Store in an air tight container.


The warm, melted white chocolate actually melts a little bit of the almond candy cover coating to spread it around the mixture.  This really gives it a festive look.  Popcorn, marshmallows and almonds covered in white chocolate...what's not to like?

Whip up this fun Firecracker Popcorn Treat for your 4th of July celebration.

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
