More than usual this year, I’ve been scouting around for Halloween treats to make.   I typically only oogle at all the fun stuff posted around the interwebs, bookmarking and filing ideas away into the recesses of my brain.  But I feel much more “in the spirit” this year, quite possibly because our new house is finally under construction (!!!) thus giving me a big project to focus on other than everyday “life stuff.”   And dare I say that I’m stoked to get my Martha on with some glitter, Mod Podge, and pumpkins?!

This Monster Munch popcorn mix is one of the treats I Pinned a few weeks back and I was immediately sold.  It is chocolate covered popcorn with candy after all – how bad could it be? – and it took me all of maybe 8 minutes to put this popcorn mix together over the weekend, thanks to my new Whirley-Pop that revolutionized my life with fresh popcorn in 3 minutes.  That’s my kind of treat!  I can’t ever seem to find almond bark in the grocery store (should I just order it from Amazon?) so I used orange candy melts, which were way more festive than white chocolate/bark anyway.  You’ll toss your favorite add-ins into the fresh popcorn – anything from candy to nuts or even pretzel snaps – then drizzle on some melted chocolate and stir everything together.  It’s almost an instant Halloween treat!
