Jackpot. It’s not every day that I get asked to make fun holiday treats with M&M’S®, but when I do I go for it! As an added bonus, I got to shop at Target, which is rare since it’s an hour from my home.
White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’S®! Yes, they are absolutely as tasty as they sound, and they are available at Target. I saw them on the endcap by the checkout lanes first, and then again on this large display endcap with all of the Christmas candy and other goodies.
“My” Target didn’t have them, but my aunt found some exclusive Glad Holiday packaging for me with M&M’S® holiday recipes featured on the back at the Target she visited in the city. Each recipe was designed to fit within the Glad container that features the recipe, making gift giving so easy!
The recipes are super easy, too. My eleven year old and her friend made these M&M’s Chocolate Espresso Peppermint Bites with M&M’S® Holiday Baking Mini’s all on their own Friday night. Aren’t they cute?
As for me, I whipped up this Peppermint M&M’s Popcorn Munch in about 5 minutes. It’s a pretty, salty sweet combination with perfect crunch.
Peppermint M&M’s Popcorn Munch
10-12 cups of popcorn
2-3 cups of pretzels
1-2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 bags of M&M’S® White Chocolate Peppermint (only at Target)
In a large, parchment-lined cake pan (or two 9×13 pans), spread popcorn. Sprinkle pretzels and M&M’s on top. Melt chocolate chips and drizzle over all. Toss together. Refrigerate until the chocolate is solid.
Break apart, adding more chocolate and/or M&M’s as needed. Store for gift giving in Glad storage with exclusive holiday prints from Target.
M&M’s add a festive touch to lots of Christmas treats. What are your favorites?
