Holiday Popcorn Mix

Okay, so this barely counts as a recipe but this Holiday Popcorn Mix is fun to make and one of my favourite snacks when I’m curled up with a glass of wine, watching Hallmark’s latest holiday movies.

I personally have a soft spot for M&M’s but you can top this mix with any chocolate or candy you’re craving. You can get fancy and pop your own corn but I think the packaged stuff does the trick nicely.
