8 ounces of white chocolate candy coating, melted (I used Ghiradelli white chocolate and a handful of white chocolate melts)
4 heaping teaspoons of yellow cake mix
Pop popcorn and spread out on a paper towel, removing any kernels or burnt pieces, and place in a large bowl. Mix in mini M&Ms.
Melt white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Stir in cake mix until smooth, then stir in about 3 teaspoons of sprinkles. Immediately pour over popcorn. Using a wooden spoon, mix the popcorn and M&Ms until completely coated.
Pour out onto wax paper or into a wax-paper lined jelly roll pan and spread into a single layer. Sprinkle with sprinkles until festive, then let cool and harden. Break into pieces and enjoy!
My new toaster makes a beeping noise when it’s done, that sounds very similar to the initial bleating of my smoke alarm. Making nachos is really causing me a lot of undue stress.
Random food preservation tip that I recently learned (and have more recently tested).
To keep your carton of ice cream/frozen yogurt from forming ice crystals/freezer burn, after you open it, put an oversized piece of plastic wrap on top of the container, before you put the lid back on it. I tested it, after 3 weeks, still perfect with the plastic wrap. Without it, it only took 4 days for little crystally bits to start forming.
