The other day while at Walmart I found Crunch 'n Munch on sale for 50 cents so I went ahead and picked up 2 boxes and then came home to decide what I would do with it. I ran across this blog post for Easter Candy Popcorn and went to work.
I took the Crunch 'n Munch and poured it on my big platter.
Take 1/2 stick of butter, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and 1/2 bag of marshmallows and melt together.
In the middle of the melting process this little fellow woke up and was throwing himself a fit because he wanted a bottle. I made a bottle one handed while still stirring and I did a big no no.
This was the only time I had ever done this. I really didn't want my mixture to burn.
I poured the melted mixture on top and lightly tossed and threw on some pink and white candies.
Once dried a little I balled them up and put in cupcake liners and stuck a spring pick in each one.
This worked out great for when I put plastic wrap on top to take to Jack's daycare.
Super easy and yummy and it makes a great little treat.
The original recipe called for regular popcorn but this worked out really great because peanuts were already in there to give them a little hint of salt.
Sweet & Salty...can't go wrong with that!
