Lip-Smacking Popcorn Concoction

Rated as 4.69 out of 5 Stars

"This is an easy and extremely tasty recipe! Every time I make this, I have people lined up to get the recipe! Cereal, corn chips, pretzels and nuts are coated with a vanilla confectioner's coating (also known as almond bark). This recipe makes a LOT--enough to fill an entire punch bowl and then some! Great for get-togethers."

  1. Cover a large flat surface with waxed paper. In a large bowl, stir together the popcorn, cereal, corn chips, almonds, and pretzels.
  2. Melt the confectioners' coating in a glass bowl in the microwave for 1 minute. Continue to cook at 30 second intervals, stirring between each one, until the coating is smooth.
  3. Pour melted coating over the cereal mixture. It's best to use a large metal spoon, and pour 1 or 2 spoonfuls at a time then mix to ensure even distribution. (A second person can be useful here - one to pour, one to mix.) Once everything is coated, spread the mixture out onto waxed paper in a thin layer. Let stand for about 1/2 hour, or until coating is dry. Transfer to a bowl to serve, or store in an airtight container.

This is some really good stuff!! I didn't use the cereal puffs or corn chips since they weren't in my pantry, so I worked with what I had onhand. I used 3 regular sized bags microwave popcorn,...

Sounded great & the online reviews were glowing. I was sold with "never have leftovers". But... I had leftovers - practically the entire batch. Eleven teens barely touched this. Some girls ate ...

I've been making this popcorn for years. I try different concoctions all the time. Sometimes I just use the popcorn and almond bark with no other ingredients. My favorite way now is popcorn, ...

This was awesome, and so easy! I don't really like Kix or Fritos, so I used popcorn, pretzels, M&Ms, rice Chex, and almonds. Couldn't find "confectioners' coating", but plain white chocolate ...

Super yummy recipe... hits the salty/sweet craving perfectly. A couple notes: 1- The vanilla confectioner's coating is a seasonal thing... couldn't find in 3 grocery stores (and I refused to u...

This is some good stuff! It's such an easy snack to make and everyone likes to eat it. At Christmas, I've made it just with the popcorn and Christmas sprinkles--we put it in cellphane bags tie...

Super duper yummy! A hit with all my friends and family. I followed the recipe exactly except for I used more almond bark than the recipe called for to make it extra sweet. Looks very pretty ...
