My kids say that eating candy corns and peanuts at the same time tastes just like eating a Baby Ruth candy bar. Since this recipe also drizzles a bit of white chocolate over the mix, it really should be named: Baby Ruth Popcorn Mix! In our family Baby Ruths brings back memories of Nana Kelley, whom we lost this year and so this mix is in memory of her.
Autumn Party Mix:
2 bags Microwave Popcorn
1 bag Candy Corns
1 cup salted peanuts
1 (16 oz) bag white chocolate chips
1 cup orange candy melts
Optional: Fall Candy Sprinkles
Put wax paper on 2 large baking pans.
Pop the popcorn and remove the unpopped kernals
Divide popcorn evenly among both baking pans
Sprinkle the candy corn and peanuts evenly into the popcorn, dividing equally between both pans.
Melt white chocolate chips according to package directions.
Drizzle white chocolate all over the popcorn mixture between both pans.
Melt Orange Candy Melts according to package directions.
Drizzle Orange over popcorn mixture on both pans.
While Chocolate/Orange is still wet sprinkle candy sprinkles over the popcorn mixture.
Place pans in fridge to speed up the chocolate setting firm.
Break popcorn mix into pieces and store in airtight bags/containers
(and for heavens sake, sneak a taste or two!)
