Holiday Popcorn (AKA Christmas Crack!)

Looking for a yummy holiday popcorn recipe? This popcorn is loaded with YUM like M&Ms, pretzels and more. It's so addicting we call it Christmas Crack!

We do a lot of holiday gatherings this time of year, and even though we are always cooking and feeding the masses, the kids are always “hungry.” I can make this popcorn in about 10 minutes, and kids and adults alike love it. Beware! This holiday popcorn (we also call it Christmas Crack…others call it white trash popcorn) is addicting. Make a double batch because it goes quick!

The great thing about this holiday popcorn recipe is that it’s versatile. Leave the nuts out or add your favorites. Use Reese’s Pieces instead of M&Ms. Use different cereal. Add in other things that your family loves. The sky’s the limit!

This is a favorite holiday recipe, but I have lots others too! Like these Champagne Jello Shots, these Amaretto Truffles, and my Perfectly Imperfect Peppermint Truffles.
