Here are a couple recipes you can make for company or for party snacks, including an easy chocolate popcorn recipe!
Easy Chocolate Popcorn
2 quarts popcorn, popped
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup peanuts
6 plain Hershey’s candy bars (1.55 oz each)*
Place popcorn on a greased 15x10x1 baking pan. Break candy bars into quarters. Sprinkle marshmallows and peanuts and place broken candy bars on top. Bake at 300° for 5 minutes. Let stand for 1 minute. Toss to coat. Store in an airtight container. * This is a good way to use up some of that Christmas or Easter chocolate.
