Popcorn & Movie fun!

We put these together for Ethan and Wyatt's teachers.
Popcorn, M&M's, and movie tickets.
White Chocolate Popcorn: 2 bags microwave popcorn & 2 or 3 squares of melted white Almond Bark. Mix together and spread on cookie sheet to dry.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Popcorn from Our Best Bites:
2 bags of Simply Salted (or similar) popcorn (or about 20 cups of popped popcorn)
2 c. honey roasted peanuts
3 c. peanut butter chips (I used 2 1/2 cups pb chips and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips)
2/3 c. chocolate chips (I used half semi-sweet)
1 Tbsp. vegetable shortening or oil
Reese's Pieces (optional)
Place the peanuts, popped popcorn in a very large bowl. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the peanut butter chips and vegetable oil or shortening and heat for 2-2 1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Drizzle the melted peanut butter chips over the popcorn and peanuts and toss to combine.
Spread the popcorn onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet. In a Ziploc bag, heat the semi-sweet chocolate chips until just melted and smooth (about 1-1 1/2 minutes, mashing the bag every 20-30 seconds). Cut a small corner in the Ziploc bag and drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn. Add Reese's Pieces. Allow to stand long enough to become solid (you can transfer the pan to the fridge or freezer to hurry this step along). When done, break the popcorn into small pieces and enjoy!
