Minty Shamrock M&M Popcorn

Something you might not know about me – I’m a little bit Irish – so I love St. Patrick’s Day :) It’s fun! Soooo I had to take some of the minty M&M’s I had in the cabinet & make one of my most favorite quick snacks. Minty Shamrock M&M Popcorn is so easy to make & my kids went nuts for it with that hint of mint. Gotta love M&M’s for keeping every holiday fun with all their different flavors & varieties.

Minty Shamrock M&M Popcorn

A little popcorn, a little mint M&M & then the white chocolate. YUM!

Minty Shamrock M&M Popcorn

It goes together so quickly – & gone almost just as fast.

Minty Shamrock M&M Popcorn


  • 1 regular size bag microwave popcorn-popped
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 tbsp shortening
  • 1-1/2 cups Mint M&M's
  • 1/2 cup green milk chocolate M&M's


  1. Prepare popcorn-pour in large bowl-set aside
  2. In glass bowl add white chocolate chips & shortening.
  3. Nest bowl in a pan filled half way with water & heat over medium heat.
  4. Stir constantly until chocolate is in a very liquid state & smooth. Do not over heat.
  5. Remove from heat- pour immediately over popcorn.
  6. Stir in until it's coated & well combined.
  7. Pour in M&M's & mix in. (Best to do this in small batches- you want some of the M&M's to get melted a bit from the heat of the white chocolate. Then you want to add more as it cools otherwise they will sink to the bottom.)

    I’ve never tried many sweet popcorns, but these all look so delicious! I might have to make a batch of everything this weekend, ha ha ha!

      Thank you SO MUCH Jamielyn – it certainly was so good. Quite addicting- I had to have someone physically remove the bowl from my hands or I may have eaten the whole thing. :)
