Today I did a remix (make) of my Gourmet Popcorn and 5th Sister this one is for you :)

Gourmet Andes
Chocolate Mint Popcorn
Andes mints- about 1c. before melting
1/2c. white almond bark
green food coloring
4c. popped corn

Here we go-

Folks , the arm is just a decoration, not a missing ingredient so please disregard.
Enlist a helper or 2 to unwrap all the mints- make sure you watch them though to keep pilfering to a minimum.

How many of these do you think ended up in her mouth?

I'm not sure, I looked away for a minute, my bad.
Melt your Andes Mints first, pour over the popcorn while stirring. Spread out onto wax paper. Melt the almond bark and color it with your coloring, now the almond bark doesn't pour, it blops. So I put it into a small baggie, snipped off the end and squiggled it over my popcorn.
There you go, very VERY tasty and beautiful too and it took me less than 10 minutes.
Now if you will excuse me, I need to go pick the popcorn hulls out of my teeth.

Congrats on your awards!! Thanks for passing them on :D Your post was cracking me up. I love the word pilfer, isn't it a funny word? Better yet - I love how you said the almond bark blops (I second that). I say all those kind of words all the time and hubby thinks I'm crazy.
I love the popcorn!

That popcorn looks so good! We love Andes mints. That's why my boys request Olive Garden. (They give you one with the check.)
