Confetti Bliss!
Just so you know, popcorn, M&M’s & jelly beans rank really high in our house & are considered staples. I saw this recipe somewhere last year right after Valentine’s. For the life of me, I can’t remember where, but knew immediately is would be a huge hit in our house. It is heavenly. Well, that is if you like a salty & sweet combo – who doesn’t right???
For the record I used:
1 bag of M&M’s
*Almost* 2 bags of Orville Redenbacher’s microwaveable Tender White Popcorn
TIPS:
*Spread on large baking sheet to allow time to dry before placing it in bags.
*After I saw this last year, I realized this could be used for any holiday. Because M&M/Mars goes seasonal in color for every holiday.
Don’t ya just love it when a company is just as seasonal as us bloggers???

  44. This is absolutely adorable … and easy … which is the best combination in my book.

    One little note: about a year ago, I choked on popcorn and my husband had to save me – I could not get a breath and it was very scary! Please watch little kiddos carefully when they are munching on popcorn!

  45. This will make a great going away party snack for the teen girls…They love food and I hate to leave them empty handed.

  69. I’m thinking of making a class set for my students for Valentine’s day. About how many bags did this recipe make, and about how much is in each bag?

  70. This looks so yummy. I can’t wait to try it with my kiddos! I featured it on my blog: http://www.organizinghomelife.com/archives/1998

  71. YUM!!!! Totally can’t wait to make this!! Thanks.

  72. Yum!!!

  73. M&M’s are a favorite in our home.Thank you for a new idea!

  74. Think I may do this for my son’s 3rd grade class…thanks so much for the awesome idea

  75. I do something similar, but instead of stirring it, I just do a single layer of popcorn in a cake pan, drizzle it with chocolate, sprinkle with goodies, then do a second layer on top of that. Then I break it up later. See? I colored my white chocolate and added blueberry craisins and pretzels. http://www.flickr.com/photos/onama/5959714526/

  76. love this idea! i am wondering if i could use air-popped popcorn instead? i’ll have to try!

  79. HOw many bags of popcorn did this amount make? Just wondering if I need to double the recipe for my daughters class.

  80. This is good stuff! For those who asked, I doubled this recipe and I will have enough for 20 students (and my bags are not as stuffed as the picture here). And if you’re thinking of using red melts for creative freedom, I wouldn’t suggest it. Looks like bloody popcorn and you can’t see the m&ms as much :)

  83. I’m doing this today for my 3y/o son’s valentine party in preschool. I made a ‘monster box’ from Pintrest (http://pinterest.com/pin/184858759674239279/) so I’m doing it with multicolored m’s to match, putting it in baggies, tying with monster ribbon and putting each kid’s name on a bag and calling it ‘monster munch’! THANKS SO MUCH for the FAB idea!

  84. I am making this today for my 3 y/o son’s valentine party. I made ‘monster box’ that I also found on Pintrest so I am using multicolored m’s to go with it and bagging it tying with ribbon and calling it ‘monster munch’! My son is SO excited to take it to school! Thanks for the GREAT IDEA! :D

  85. I just found this yummy treat on Pinterest and visited your blog and I love it! It is so GOOD and both my kids and husband loved it! I had to make double batches as only one batch gave me 5 bags filled about the same as in the pic! So two batches give you about 10 bags! These are my teachers’ treats from the kids for Valentine’s Day! Thanks so much for sharing!

  87. This turned out soooo cute. Made 20 bags for Valentines treats. I got 10 nice sized bags per batch. I used pink Wiltons melts. Tasted great too! :-)

  88. I made this with 1/2 cup air popped popcorn and peanut butter valentine m&ms and it is SO good! I’ll be making more batches for my son’s popcorn themed birthday party.

  89. This is a great recipe! I made a few substitutions: I used about 10 cups of air popped popcorn, a large bag of plain M & M’s, and about 8 oz of almond bark instead of the candy melts. It worked great, although next time I might use 1-2 more cups of popcorn.

    This looks so yummy for my kid’s class at church…..and just in time for Valentines Day. Thank you so much!!!!

  91. I’m curious to know what flavored Wilton candy melts did you use as pictured? This is such a cute and clever idea! Might have to try this for my 3 years little Preschool Valentines party next week. Thanks in advance!

  92. CupcakeKiller702 says:

    Nice idea. I even took it one step further and added in a small baggie of freeze dried strawberry slices because they look like heart shapes. Thanks for this! :)

  93. Made this for my piano students for a V Day treat and added a tag on the bag that said, “Because you play so sweetly….” Thanks for such an easy, child-pleasing idea!

  94. This is great…a friend made it for a baby shower, and it was delicious. Do you know how many cups this makes (approximately)?

    • oh gosh, i’m trying to think it’s been a while since i made this. if you use 2 bags – you should have about 5-6 cups, i would think.
