Halloween Crunch: Sweet Popcorn Treat

When it was still safe to eat homemade goodies given to us while trick-or-treating, as a child I loved receiving popcorn balls. I've been looking for a non-caramel popcorn treat for a while and then I saw this on on Pinterest from Our Best Bites.

I modified their recipe a bit to my tastes and you can mix and match however you like it too.

Halloween Crunch
adapted from Our Best Bites

12 cups popcorn (see easy tutorial here)
1 pound almond bark

Then add whichever nuts and candies you'd like. I added the following:
1 cup almonds, or any variety nut
1 cup m&m's (any kind, plain, peanut butter, peanut, etc)
1 cup candy corn

Pop popcorn (either microwave method or healthier quick method) and place in the largest bowl you have. Add m&m's, candy corn and nuts. Mix. Next, melt almond bark according to directions on package. With spatula, gently pour melted almond bark over popcorn mixture. Stir occasionally. Then take a long sheet of foil, wax or parchment paper and lay flat. Spread popcorn mixture on top. Allow to dry, about 1 hour.
