4th of July Popcornopolis Snack Mix Ingredients:
You can mix and match your favorite sweet and salty snacks with Popcornopolis Popcorn and add some red, white, and blue candies. Mini pretzels, cereals like Chex, Kix, or Cheerios, candies like M&M’s, sprinkles, Popcornopolis Popcorn, and a variety of nuts all work well together.
Mix together these ingredients:
- Nearly Naked, or your favorite Popcornopolis Popcorn.
- Traditional Chex Mix Snack Mix
- Red, White & Blue peanut M&M’s
- White chocolate chips for drizzling
On a baking sheet, mix the Nearly Naked (or other favorite Popcornopolis Popcorn) with the Chex Mix.
Make sure the popcorn and snack mix is evenly dispersed and there are hardly any gaps between the ingredients. NOTE: Adding wax paper or foil on top of the baking sheet would make for an easier clean up.
Melt the white chocolate in a microwave safe dish at 50% power for 30-second intervals and make sure you stir the chocolate in between each interval. Microwave and stir until all chocolate is evenly melted.
Grab a spoon and drizzle the melted white chocolate over the snack mix on the baking sheet. It is completely up to you on how saturated you want your snack mix to be. NOTE: If you are a white chocolate lover you can even mix the ingredients on the baking sheet while drizzling to cover more surface area of the ingredients with the white chocolate.
Add M&M’s at this time and then allow the chocolate to cool and then break apart the mixture and serve as desired.
You can store the left over snack mix in an airtight bag or container, but we don’t count on you having any left over! The snack mix will stay fresh for 2-3 days.
Have a safe and happy 4th!
