Monster Mash Popcorn

Calling all monsters!

This popcorn is for you!

Simple and quick are just some of the reasons why you’ll enjoy this sweet popcorn. This Monster Mash is a great party treat or a Halloween movie night snack—and it only takes several spooky ingredients.

Little “Sprinkles”

  • Stick with black, white, orange, green or purple melting chocolate for the Halloween look
  • Candy googly eyes are fun, but you can also use whatever other fun sprinkles you can find (knives, skulls, bones, spiders, etc.)
  • You can melt the candy in the microwave according to the package directions or on the stove top
  • Gently mix the popcorn and melted candy to avoid crushing the popcorn in the bowls OR dump popcorn on a cooling rack and spread the melted chocolate over them that way
  • Allow to harden before serving
  • Lay out the popcorn on a baking sheet, it will help keep them separated and harden individually
  • I prefer white popcorn (no butter), but you can also use regular buttered popcorn. The flavor might be a bit different though
  • Use other Halloween themed candy, like m&ms, Hershey kisses, etc.
  • You can also make popcorn balls with this recipe! Just roll into balls once you dump the melted chocolate on the popcorn
  • If you can’t find candy melts, use white chocolate and food coloring instead
  • Cauldron and candy melts were bought at Michael’s
