Candy & White Chocolate Popcorn Munch

This is a super simple way to use up leftover candy from Halloween! Enjoy this treat on your next movie night! But be warned: once you begin eating this Movie Munch you probably won't be able to stop.


1 bag microwave buttered popcorn
1 Tbsp. peanut butter
1 (12 oz.) pkg. white chocolate chips
1 cup Cheerios 
(you can use any type of Cheerios or another cereal of your choice, such as Rice Krispie's, Nesquick, Cocoa Puffs, Fruit Loops etc.)
2/3 cup M&M's or other candy (I used a mixture of M&M's, Smarties, Reese's Pieces Bites, and some rainbow sprinkles. You could also add peanuts or other nuts in as well)


Microwave the bag of buttered popcorn and set aside to cool.

In a bowl, microwave the peanut butter and package of white chocolate chips for approx. 90 seconds, or until smooth.

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 Cheerios (or whatever cereal you are using) to the popcorn and mix. Slowly pour in the melted chips and peanut butter and mix until it’s all coated.

Add M&M’s or your candy of choice and mix until they are evenly distributed. Spread the mixture onto waxed paper on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for about an hour.
Break the popcorn up into clusters and serve in a big bowl. Store in an airtight container or large plastic bag in the fridge so it doesn't begin to melt.
