  • Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper & set aside for later use.
  • Cook the microwave popcorn according to package directions.  Allow to cool slightly, then carefully remove & throw away any unpopped kernels.  
  • Using a large bowl, combine the popped corn, pretzels and M&Ms.
  • Place 4 Vanilla flavored candy coating bars in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave the bars for 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 second interval, until melted.
  • Pour the melted candy coating over the popcorn mixture and stir gently until evenly coated.
  • Quickly transfer the candy mixture to the prepared sheet pan and add the colored sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.
  • Allow the snack mix to set up for 20 minutes.
  • Break into smaller pieces and store in a tightly sealed container on the counter.


  • The mix will keep for about 5 days.
  • Change the candies and colors to make this festive mix for other holidays.
