That is my first time including pretzel sticks to a white chocolate popcorn creation, and I cherished the addition. The additional crunch and saltiness goes completely with the sweetness of all of the white chocolate. I used each common and white chocolate pastel M&M’s so as to add some shade, and clearly much more chocolate to the combo too. Pastel sprinkles and a drizzle of pink chocolate melts assist make this Bunny Bait significantly decked out for Easter and prepared for any springtime occasion.
Anytime I make one in every of these popcorn treats (funfetti popcorn, cookies and cream popcorn, strawberry shortcake popcorn), it’s all the time a miracle any popcorn stays as soon as I’m accomplished baking, styling, and capturing them.
It’s simply so freakin’ addicting, I normally can’t maintain my arms off! Good factor this recipe makes such a big batch, you possibly can snack as you make it AND have loads to share with your loved ones, buddies, and naturally, the Easter Bunny too. Joyful Spring/Easter/Passover/FinallyNotWinter everybody!!
1/three cup popcorn kernels*
three tbsp coconut oil (or canola oil)
2 cups white sweet melts
2 cups pretzel sticks, damaged in half
1 small bag milk chocolate M&M’s, pastel coloured
1 small bag white chocolate M&M’s, pastel coloured
three/four cup pink sweet melts
*For those who do not need to use kernels, pop 2 baggage of microwave popcorn as a substitute
Place the oil in a medium-large pot with a lid and pour within the popcorn kernels. Activate the warmth to medium-high and permit the oil and kernels to warmth. When the popcorn begins popping, begin to gently shake the pan backwards and forwards. Attempt to maintain the lid barely off to permit among the steam to launch. As soon as the popping slows down, take away the pot from warmth and switch popcorn to a big bowl.
Cowl a big cookie sheet with wax paper and put aside. Place the white sweet melts in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring effectively between every interval, till utterly easy. Pour the white chocolate over the popcorn in a big bowl and use clear arms or a rubber spatula to unfold the chocolate round in order that it’s evenly distributed on the popcorn. Add the pretzels and M&M’s and maintain stirring till all combined in.
Unfold the coated popcorn onto the ready cookie sheet in order that it’s virtually in a single layer. Soften the pink sweet melts the identical approach the white ones had been melted, and drizzle over the popcorn combination. Add sprinkles whereas melted sweet remains to be heat after which permit sweet coating to dry utterly (it’s also possible to put it within the fridge for 10 minutes to hurry up the method). As soon as dry, use your fingers to interrupt up the only layer into bite-sized items if obligatory. Retailer popcorn in an hermetic container for as much as one week at room temperature.
