Do you need a fun treat to take to a New Year's Eve party? If so, you should try this one! My sister-in-law, Shannon, gave me a bag of this for Christmas this year, and I fell in love. . .really! I am not even that huge a fan of popcorn, but this is so tasty. I loved it so much that my husband went out and bought me my very own air popper last night so that I could have some more. It tastes great for several days, so bag it up and have a homemade snack.
Air-popped popcorn is so much healthier than microwave popcorn. You can control the seasonings and toppings that you want, and you never have to worry about the crazy chemicals that may be in it. Jeremy bought me the Presto brand air popper from Walmart, and it only cost $15. Sweet deal if you ask me!
16 cups of POPPED corn (not kernels) With my popper, 16 cups was 1.5 scoops, but I'm sure that all poppers are different.
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 whole brick white almond bark (melted)
2 cups peanuts
In a VERY large bowl, toss your popcorn, Rice Krispies, and peanuts together. Pour the melted almond bark over the whole bowl, and stir to coat all of it. Pour the whole bowl of popcorn onto large pieces of foil to cool. Store in gallon-sized ziploc bags.
