~from Savoring Time in the Kitchen
4-6 cups popped popcorn - not buttered and very lightly salted (you want the popcorn to be as dry as possible)
1 bag of M&M pretzel candies
Any other hard-coated pastel candies that you like
3-4 ounces of melted chocolate (I prefer using dark chocolate but white chocolate is fine)
Pop corn and allow to cool. Melt chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute, stirring to dissolve. Melt in additional 10 second intervals until melted, stirring again after each interval.
Place the popcorn on a large baking sheet. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the popcorn and allow to set. I put mine in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to set the chocolate.
After the chocolate has set, you can add any candies that you choose.
Place in clear plastic treat bags and tie with decorative ribbon.
