Only THREE affordable ingredients, easily found at your local Dollar General!

Here’s what you do:

1.)  Line a tray or cookie sheet with foil or waxed paper. Spread popcorn and 1/2 cup peanuts on the tray.

2.)  Cut 1 cup of REESE’S® Minis into halves and place them into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM heat for about one minute. Stir and then keep microwaving for 15 seconds at a time until it’s nice and melted.

3.)  Drizzle over the popcorn and peanuts. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes, or until the coating is firm. Separate into little dishes, or however you would like to serve it and top with the additional peanuts and REESE’S® Minis.
