Monster Mash Popcorn Mix
I have an enthusiastic Four Year Old Foodie. Since he is always putting up with my boring measuring and stirring I thought it would be fun to get a little crazy in the kitchen. So we popped a bunch of popcorn using the homemade microwave method, drizzled it with chocolate, and threw in bunches of candy corn, Reese’s Puffs cereal, and these funky eyeball candies.
I usually save my chocolate popcorn for Christmastime when we have an excess of chocolate leftover from dipping buckeyes. But how could I say no to my little guy when he first saw these candy eyeballs? I waited for my 40% off coupon and nabbed a pack as soon as I could.
Our family enjoyed munching on this Monster Mash. However the longer that I stared at these photos the more I started to see chickens. Do you see chickens? Have I mentioned that I’m weird? Anyway, Monster Mash Popcorn Mix or Funky Chicken Popcorn Mix- you decide. I’m going back for seconds.
Monster Mash Popcorn Mix Recipe
- 5 cups popped popcorn
- 1/2 cup white chocolate
- 1/4 cup orange chocolate

I used white, yellow, and orange chocolate melts. You can find it at most craft stores- JoAnne's, Michaels, even at some grocery stores.
I totally see the chickens but I am wondering, does the candy corn melt to give the orange and yellow colors? What kind of chocolate do you use to make these? I love them!
Very cute. I totaly saw chickens from the start!
So cute and really fun for the kids 😀
