Lucky Shamrock Mix

On one of my kids’ snow days, Smith asked if we could make Reindeer Food…but since we’re several months past Christmas, I told him we should mix and match it and make…Lucky Shamrock Mix instead.  He loved it :).  I loved that all I had to do was swap the Chex cereal for Lucky Charms.  This was a great snack to have while we watched movies one snowy afternoon…and it was fun to stick in their lunchboxes the next day too.
Shopping List
1 bag of popped popcorn (about 4 cups total)
4 cups Lucky Charms cereal
8 oz white candy coating or almond bark
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup mint chocolate chips (optional)
2 cups mini marshmallows
Green sprinkles
Lay wax paper down over your kitchen counters to pour your Reindeer Food on.
In a large mixing bowl, combine your popcorn and Lucky Charms together.
In a microwavable bowl, melt your candy coating, stirring every 45 seconds.  Once it’s melted, quickly pour it over your popcorn mixture and toss.  Working quickly, add in your white chocolate chips, mint chocolate chips, marshmallows and sprinkles and then pour the mixture down over the wax paper to dry (about 10 minutes).  Once it’s dried, store in an airtight container.
So simple and festive!  We love a lot of green around St. Patrick’s Day!

    Can't wait to try this! We do something similar at Halloween…Mummy Munch. This sounds even better.

    Love ALL of your popcorn mix ideas. So fun & yummy! My 5-year-old was extremely excited about the addition of Lucky Charms. šŸ™‚

    Made this…this afternoon. Didn't have any candy coating or almond bark, so I mixed some shortening in with white chocolate chips then melted. We added that to the Lucky Charms, spring time chocolate chips, mini marshmallows & no green sprinkles but had the rainbow kind.

    It was YUMMY!!!

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!!
