Chocolate & Nut Popcorn Munch

The perfect combination of salty, sweet, and crunchy - this stuff is seriously addicting!


1 bag microwave buttered popcorn
1 300 g pkg. milk chocolate chips (or about 2 cups)
2 Tbsp. peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
1 and 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 cup peanuts
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup cereal (Life, Chex, or Shreddies work best)
1 Crispy Crunch bar (or other similar bar), roughly chopped


Microwave the bag of buttered popcorn and set aside to cool.
In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the peanut butter and chocolate chips for approx. 90 seconds, or until smooth. Only microwave the mixture for small amounts at a time so the chocolate won't burn.
Transfer the popcorn out of the bag into a large mixing bowl by hand, so you don’t get any unpopped kernels in your mix. Add the coconut, peanuts, walnuts, and cereal to the popcorn and mix. Slowly pour in the melted chips and peanut butter mixture and gently mix until it’s all coated. It is easiest to use your hands to mix.
Add in the chopped Crispy Crunch bar and mix until is it evenly distributed. Spread the mixture onto waxed paper on a cookie sheet or into a large wax paper-lined plastic container and refrigerate for about an hour. Break the popcorn up into clusters and serve in a big bowl or tin. Store in the fridge so it doesn't melt.
