MONSTER MUNCH: BLOOD, BONES, BRAINS, BUGS!-By Katrina Sosnowski
Hi everyone I hope you are ready for a tasty treat! This is a fun recipe I found online for a spring Easter treat that I have changed to be a bit ghoulish for Halloween or any time you have hungry monsters you need to feed. I made the Easter version for a party and it was a huge hit so I think this version will be too. It’s easy and you only need 4 ingredients! Here we go!
1/2 cup un-popped popcorn kernels, or 2 bags tender white popcorn (Brains)
12 oz red candy melts such as Wilton, they taste like vanilla! (Blood)
1 1/3 cups pretzel sticks broken in to small pieces (Bones)
12 oz chocolate chips, you can also use mini chocolate chips or M&Ms (Bugs)
1- Pop popcorn in a popper or microwave according to manufactures directions; remove any un-poped kernels let cool. Toss in broken pretzel pieces and chocolate chips. I used a cookie sheet you can also use a mixing bowl.
2- Melt candy melts in a microwave safe bowl on high for 30 second intervals stirring after each time until melted and smooth. Drizzle half of the melted chips over the popcorn mixture then stir or toss gently a few times. Drizzle remaining candy over popcorn mixture until evenly coated.
3- Allow mixture to cool and harden then break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
4 – Enjoy!
