Holiday Popcorn

If you are looking for an easy treat to make with the kids or for a party - look no further - these are my new absolute favorite treat!  There are peanuts, and chocolate all covered in a marshamallowy goo. Yumm-o!

And you know what the best thing about these little goodies is?  You can make them for any holiday!  Red and green at Christmas, Reese's Pieces or fall colored M&M's - you could even put candy corn it it.  (Just a suggestion.)  The possibilities are endless...

I am dying to try Raisinettes in it next time! 

Adapted from Taste of Home
6 quarts of popped popcorn (about 1 cup unpopped)
1 jar (16 oz) dry roasted peanuts
1 pkg (16 oz) M&M's candy
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup canola oil
1 pkg (16 oz) miniature marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla

Mix popcorn, peanuts and M&M's in a very large mixing bowl.

Cook marshmallows, butter and oil in large saucepan over medium heat until marshmallows are melted.  Remove from heat, add vanilla and stir.

Pour melted marshmallows over popcorn mixture and mix until evenly coated.  Press into two 9x13" pans.  Let stand until set, about 1-2 hours.

Cut into bars and enjoy!  Since there are 2 pans, you can even give one away & keep one for yourself! Bonus! :)

Oh Beth! This is just gorgeous. My kids would love this. Thanks for linking up at Thriving on Thursdays. The linky party starts in just over 12 hours. Would love to see what you've been up to this week. Have also posted your idea to Facebook.
