Ingredients

  • 4

    cups popcorn, popped

  • 3

    cups corn cereal, toasted

  • 1 1/4

    cup brown sugar

  • 3/4

    cup margarine or butter

  • green sugar sprinkles

  • 2

    cups mini pretzels

  • 4

    blocks almond bark

  • 2 to 3

    drops green food coloring

  • 1

    cup green M&M’s or mint chocolate M&M’s

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. In medium heavy bottomed saucepan, melt butter or margarine and brown sugar together. Bring to a boil and allow this to cook, stirring occasionally, for 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Place waxed paper on a baking sheet and spread popcorn and cereal over in an even layer. Pour caramel over popcorn and cereal, stirring with a wooden spoon to ensure all pieces are coated lightly. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow them to cool. Gently break apart any clumps that have formed. In a microwave safe bowl, place 4 squares almond bark. Microwave on medium heat in 30-second increments until it has melted. Stir in 2 to 3 drops green food coloring. Do not use an excess as the added moisture can cause problems in the bark hardening properly after pretzels are dipped. Using skewers or forks, dip each pretzel into melted almond bark, coating well. Place dipped pretzels on wax paper to dry and set. Once pretzels have set mix together with popcorn, cereal, and M&M’s.
