DirectionsPop the two bags of popcorn, remove unpopped kernels; add broken pretzel piece and nuts. Stir to mix up good.In a microwave safe container, melt almond bark on high for 30 second intervals, stir after each interval until just melted. It took about 1 1/2 minutes. Don't over heat or it will seize and become hard.Pour melted almond bark over popcorn mixture; stir until combined and popcorn is well coated.Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper and pour coated mixture onto sheet in a single layer. This may take 2 sheets pans depending on size. Or, you could just place parchment paper on your counter if you don't have large baking sheet pans. Sprinkle on your favorite toppings. For Fall I used candy corn, Reeses Pieces and M&M's. You can change the candies to your liking. I would not use any chocolates that would melt easily.Allow candy to cool completely, break up and store in containers. I used quart canning jars.NOTE: I chose to sprinkle candy on top rather than stirring in the candy coating because I wanted a brighter and prettier look. You can stir the candy in if you like.
