This post is going to be short and sweet (no pun intended!). I know I’ve shared things like this before, but I had fun playing with the photo and I really wanted to “Pin It”, so I had to do a post.
I whipped this up Fall M&M’s & Popcorn Snack Mix last night when my daughter told me (at the very last minute!) that she was supposed to bring snacks for her GA’s class at church.
Here’s what I did. I popped one bag of extra buttery microwave popcorn. I spread it on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. I sprinkled some Fall M&M’s all over.
Then I took some leftover yellow and red candy melts, melted them in the microwave for maybe a minute (probably 4-6 oz. total?).
After melted, I dipped a fork in the melted red-colored chocolate and sort of flicked it/drizzled it all over. I got a clean fork and repeated with the yellow… and Wha-La!! (You will need to let it harden, or stick it in the frig for a few minutes to set the chocolate).
After it was set, I scooped it into a bowl and off to church she went… it took less than 15 minutes total!!
I absolutely love to make fun treats like this that look like you spent way more time preparing them than you actually did!
What about you? What’s your go-to snack for last minute situations? I’d love to hear!!
