Monster Munch


Monster Munch, Halloween Popcorn Bark, CRACK! Call it whatever you want - this stuff is crazy good!!!  This is sweet & salty to the max!  Needless to say, everyone loved this stuff.  I had to share this with co-workers and family so I didn't eat it all by myself.  Make sure you add this to your Halloween party or treats this weekend!  It makes a ton - so give some away (if you can tear yourself away from it) and make some new friends!


Monster Munch
adapted from Our Best Bites
(Printable Recipe)

2 bags of microwave popcorn, popped (approximately 16-20 C popped popcorn)
1 C candy corn
1 1/2 C dry roasted, salted peanuts
1 C Reeces Pieces

Pop popcorn and place in a large bowl. The largest you have.  Pour peanuts, candy corn, and reeces pieces on top.

Break up almond bark. Melt according to package directions. Pour over popcorn mixture. Stir until everything is well coated and then spread out onto waxed paper, parchment, or foil. Let sit until completely dry and then break up into clumps.

  6. I had something similar a couple of weeks ago ... everything was the same but instead of popcorn, the woman used pretzel-peanut butter squares. It was delicious! And so seasonal looking. We love popcorn at our house, so I'm going to try your version. :)

  17. Do you know how much this will make. I seen the popcorn was 16-20 cups. I thought about making it for my sons classroom party and putting them in little cups. I was wondering if I should double the recipe? Do kids seem to like the almod flavor? I a hoping it would be a good treat to share with 5th graders.

  18. Amy - this makes about 20 cups total. It doesn't have an almond flavor. Almond bark is a type of candy coating. I use vanilla flavored almond bark (I find it near the chocolate chips).
