Monster Munch

Recipe from Our Best Bites

1 package Almond Bark (1 lb)
12 C popped popcorn (about 1/2 C kernels)
1 C candy corn
1 C dry roasted, salted peanuts
1/2 C Reece's Pieces

Pop popcorn and place in a large bowl. The largest you have.
It will make mixing easier! Pour peanuts, candy corn, and
Reece's pieces on top. Take a large knife and break up almond
bark. Melt according to package directions. Once melted pour
over popcorn mixture. Stir until everything is well coated and
then spread out onto waxed paper. Let sit until completely
dry and then break up into clumps. This is super yummy and
very addicting. You can't just eat one little bite. :)
