Movie Munch

My friend Karen gave me this recipe and it is perfect for a summertime treat. No oven required!
It seems like taking your family to the movies requires you to take out a second mortgage on your home these days. This recipe can help you solve that problem. Tell the kids you're going to rent a movie but the concessions are going to be out of this world!

1 bag microwave buttered popcorn
1 Tablespoon peanut butter
1 (12 oz) pkg. white choclate morsels
1 cup Rice Krispies cereal (I substitiute Coco Krispies, Cheerios, or any other cereal)
1/2 cup M&M's (you can put any candy you love into these - I'm sure my kids would even love a little Mike & Ike action in the corn!)

Microwave the bag of buttered popcorn - set aside. In a bowl, microwave the peanut butter and package of white chocolate morsels until smooth (in 30 second increments). Take popcorn out of bag by hand, so you don't get any unpopped kernels, and put in a large mixing bowl. The bigger the bowl the better! Add Rice Krispies to popcorn and mix. Slowly pour in the melted morsels - mix into the bowl and be sure to coat everything. When throughly mixed - add M&M's or candy of choice. Spread mixture onto waxed paper on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for about an hour. Break popcorn up into clusters and serve in a big bowl or movie popcorn bag! Stay home and enjoy! I love this recipe because I always have the ingredients on hand. Try semi-sweet morsels or milk chocolate morsels for a change. Make both batches and mix together after they are chilled.

This snack is sure to get two thumbs up!

I love your picture! How great to put those movie reels behind your popcorn. I wish I had been there for movie night with the Munchkins.

Yummo... as Rachel Ray would say. I can't wait to get home and try this out. It will probably rank up there with your Puppy Chow.

Can't wait to watch a movie and eat your great looking and sounding popcorn. I may not be able to wait.

I'm not a fan of white chocolate. Have you ever tried it with semi-sweet or do you think it'd be too overpowering?

Missy - I have made it with Semi -Sweet chocolate and I find it amazing. You don't get the same buttery taste with it - but it is yummy just the same!!
