Milky Way Popcorn


Milky Way Popcorn

Have you entered my Giveaway yet?  You don’t want to miss this one.

The Superbowl is right around the corner, and I haven’t given you any appropriate appetizers or treats.  Well that will change now!  The rest of the week is solely devoted to food to eat while watching the Superbowl, or the commercials….I don’t judge.  I love football, probably more than the average girl, but unless my team is playing (which has not happened in my life time), I am all about the social aspect.  Chatting, eating, drinking, and the commercials.

Today I have a sweet treat for you to munch on.  Two Peas & Their Pod have posted a couple of great popcorn treats lately, so I decided to turn it into my own.  Milky Way is my favorite candy bar, so I thought it only appropriate that I use that as my candy of choice.  This was super easy to throw together.  The hardest part was waiting for it to harden.  My 6 year old had some after dinner last night, and he said it was the best popcorn he has had in his ENTIRE life.  To him, that is a big deal, because he has been around a long time, you know!  He does love his popcorn, so I took it as a big compliment.

Trust me, if you make this for your Superbowl party (or just your Saturday afternoon snack), it will disappear quickly!

  8. yumm!! What more could you want on game day than a snack that sweet and salty all in one ;)

  9. I was thinking about making something like the just the other day. I was going to use Magic Shell and put it on popcorn to see if it hardens. Then I realized it has to be cold to make the “magic” happen. So I scrapped the idea. Now I realize I should have used chocolate and caramels. See I learn something every day. Thanks for sharing this great treat for the Super Bowl. :)
