When I really like something, I have to make it a million different ways.

Liiiiiiike Chocolate Chip Cookies for instance. There are over 20 recipes on my site and I’m still adding more each month!

Or recipes with M&MS. Seriously. These aren’t even close to all of them. I have a problem.

So of course, I recreated last year’s Bunny Chow as Cupid’s Chow, Reindeer chow, and now this Leprechaun Chow! Because I LOVE this sweet, crunchy, yummy combination of Chex, kettle corn, and M&MS all coated in white chocolate.

This batch also got a handful of Lucky Charms and a drizzle of dark chocolate.

Today’s recipe, like so many others on Something Swanky, is super simple to make, requires NO BAKING, and you probably have most of this stuff on hand already!

I like to start out all of my popcorn mixes with a big bag of Boom Chicka Pop kettle corn (I bought this at Target, but you can use any brand or even make your own)

I like using kettle corn these days more than air popped or microwave popcorn, because I like the texture from the crisp sugar coating– plus the sugar keeps any moisture from the chocolate softening the popcorn at all. Which keeps things extra extra crunchy!

To the kettle corn, you’ll be adding Rice Chex cereal, Lucky Charms, M&MS (I picked out the green ones to keep things festive), a white chocolate coating, and a dark chocolate drizzle.

Of course, one of the best parts of this snack mix is that you can add (or take away) anything that you want! The sky is the limit, and you can create any sort of fun St. Patrick’s day themed popcorn that you can dream up 😊.

Enjoy!!

Leprechaun Chow

Sweet and crunchy with Lucky Charms, green M&MS, Kettle Corn, and Chex cereal all coated in white chocolate and a dark chocolate drizzle.

Ingredients:

3 cups kettle corn

3 cups rice Chex cereal

2 cups Lucky Charms

1 cup M&MS (green)

12 ounces white melting chocolate (like Wilton or Ghirardelli), melted

1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate, melted

Directions:

Pour the kettle corn and cereals into a large bowl.

Melt the white melting candy according to the directions on the package. Once melted and smooth, pour over the cereal and kettle corn. Use a large rubber spatula to gently stir and coat everything well.

Add the M&Ms to the bowl and gently stir to coat.

Spread mixture on a large nonstick surface (like a silicone baking mat or parchment paper) to allow to cool and harden (10-20 minutes).

Drizzle melted semi-sweet chocolate over top. Let cool and harden.

Break into pieces for serving or packaging.
