CK's Moose Munch
22.5 oz Crunch and Munch® (any caramel corn) (4---7.5 oz boxes)
1 cup Nuts (almonds or cashews)
12 oz Semi-sweet chocolate chips
12 oz White chocolate chips
2 tsp Crisco, divided
Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpat. Set aside.
Place semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 tsp of Crisco in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir. Continue until chips look shiny. Remove from microwave and stir until all chips are melted.
Quickly stir in 1 box of popcorn and 1/2 cup of nuts, if using. Note that popcorn does not have to be perfectly covered with chocolate. Spread onto the prepared cookie sheet, separating kernels as much as possible. Cool completely and break into pieces.
Repeat the process with the white chocolate chips and remaining Crisco. Stir in a second box of popcorn with another 1/2cup of nuts, if using. Add the white chocolate chips and put on the 2nd cookie sheet as described above.
When both pans of chocolate covered popcorn have dried, combine the white chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate and the remaining 2 boxes of popcorn. Combine the nuts with the popcorn. Store in airtight container out of the heat.
** I added the nuts into the chocolate and white chocolate mix. They are coated with the choc/white choc also.**
