  • 16 oz white candy melts
  • 12 c. popped popcorn about 1/2 c. kernels
  • 2 c. pretzels rods
  • 2 c. dry roasted peanuts
  • 10.90 oz package Spring M&Ms


  • Place popcorn in a large mixing bowl. Mix in pretzels and peanuts.
  • Melt CandiQuik according to package directions. Pop over mixture in bowl and mix until coated. Pour mixture onto waxed paper and spread out to cool and dry. Immediately sprinkle M&Ms on mixture, slightly pressing them down so they stick.
  • Store in airtight container.


  • As long as it's kept in an airtight container it will last for up to five days at room temperature.
  • My recipe has peanuts, so if you are worried about allergies you can substitute roasted almonds or walnuts instead – they both work!
You don’t have to wait until Easter to make this! With a few swaps, you can customize it for any holiday!
  • For a sweet Valentine’s day treat, use those cute red, white, and pink M&Ms and pink or white candy melt.
  • At Halloween, it’s fun to use Reese’s pieces in place of the M&Ms.
  • Grab those red and green M&Ms to make a batch for Christmas!
  • Did you know M&Ms have 4th of July-themed candies? Yep! So make a patriotic snack to celebrate!
