Prep Time 4 minutes
Mixing 5 minutes
Servings 8 cups


  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 11 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 tbsp shortening
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 cups Mint M&M's
  • 1/2 cup green milk chocolate M&M's


  • Prepare the popcorn using an air popper popcorn maker into a large bowl & set aside.
  • In a glass bowl, combine white chocolate chips & shortening.
  • Nest the bowl in a pan filled halfway with water & heat on the stove over medium heat. (you can use a double boiler for this.
  • Stir constantly until chocolate is in a very liquid state & smooth. Do not over heat.
  • Remove from heat- pour immediately over popcorn.
  • Fold the chocolate into the popcorn until it's coated & well combined.
  • Sprinkle in salt & continue to stir.
  • Pour in M&M's & continue to 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.)
