Popcorn & Pretzel Snack Mix

Pin It
Oh hello!
I have something really yummy for you today--Popcorn and Pretzel Snack Mix.
Um...amazing and so, so easy.  I've seen various versions of this little mix popping up on some of my favorite blogs, and I decided to try out my own version.

I used pretzel M&Ms, mostly because I have a super-jumbo bag of them from Sam's Club.
They spoke to me...
That, and I was really, really hungry while I was shopping.

I thought they worked out great in this mix though, but you could use regular M&Ms or even better--peanut M&Ms, whatever makes you happy.

I stuffed my face with quite a lot of this stuff and was still able to fill up six little cello bags to get the heck out of my house! give away.

Give it a try!

Popcorn and Pretzel Snack Mix
printable recipe

1 (3.3 oz.) bag of plain, salted popcorn, popped (I used Orville Redenbacher's Natural-Simply Salted)
3-4 cups mini-pretzels
2 cups pretzel M&Ms (or regular M&Ms)
1 (10 oz.) bag of white chocolate or vanilla candy coating (I used Wilton's Candy Melts)

In a large bowl, combine the popcorn, pretzels and M&Ms.  In a small bowl, melt the candy coating in the microwave, using 30 second increments and stirring after each time, until all the pieces are melted and the mixture is smooth.  Pour the melted candy coating over the popcorn mixture and stir well, making sure to coat everything.  Pour the mixture out onto a large piece of parchment paper or waxed paper and let cool completely.  Mixture will harden as it dries.  Break into pieces and serve in a large bowl or bag it up and give it away.

I make something very similar and call it "White Trash Candy." Although instead of popcorn I use cereal...like froot loops, cheerios, chex.
