Food Friday: Homemade Moose Munch

Everytime we walk into Costco, the boxes of Moose Munch tease me. The overpriced popcorn in the tiny boxes smirks at me every time I walk past, no kidding. For New Year's Eve, I decided to laugh in the face of temptation- and make my own.

First, you'll want to pop a big bowl of popcorn (yup, I had a picture. It looked weird. You know what a bowl of popcorn looks like).
Second, gather your fixings. I love that word, fixings. Last night, we used cranberry, rice cereal, and almonds. We've also tried a combination of milk chocolate, marshmallows, and pretzels. Whatever sounds good to you is what you should use.
Layer all ingredients on waxed paper, or freezer paper. Look how pretty it is.

Melt one cup of white chocolate chips in the microwave - stir every 30 seconds, and watch so that the bottom doesn't burn. Drizzle it with a spoon over the mixture. I like a scribbly-sideways maneuver, it's fun, but wear an apron.

Use the paper to pour it all into the bowl. Stir a little to evenly spread the chocolate. Pop it into your fridge to set for about 15 minutes.
Try to share nicely, and good luck with that!
