The nice thing about this Luck of Irish Party Mix is you can add whatever you have on hand. I literally opened the cupboards and searched through my candy drawer to find ingredients to add.

I started by making a batch of Homemade Caramel Corn and adding green coloring to the coating. Then Chex Cereal was mixed with melted white chocolate and a good sprinkle of green sugar. While those cooled, I chopped the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Andes Mints.

All the ingredients were tossed in a large bowl, then green M&M’s and green candy sprinkles were added. Now you can certainly drizzle over a bit more melted chocolate to hold all the ingredients together like I did in my Christmas Candy Crunch, but this time I decided to keep it a bit more simple since there was already plenty of chocolate.

    Not sure how to make the popcorn look green like yours. I used brown sugar and well more than 10 drops of green food coloring and still got popcorn that looked like baby poop. After you take the popcorn out of the oven I would suggest dumping it onto parchment paper that has been sprayed with cooking oil and spread it out a lot more than you can do on a cookie sheet. The chocolate chips take well more than 30-45 seconds to start melting. On power 10 I ran the micro for 1 minute and stirred the chips – nothing was melting. Had to go more than 15 seconds in between stirs as well. The chex cereal is very delicate and even using the folding technique they crushed and were very hard to seperate when dried. I dried the chex mix on parchment paper as well and tried to seperate them as much as possible before allowing them to dry. Instead of using andes mints and m&m I was able to find green m&m’s flavored mint.
