Snow Day!

When the weather outside is frightful, the house smells delightful. There's simply no place to be, let it snow, let it snow!

Well with the weather snowy and icy, I decided to cook up some holiday snacks! Both of these are extremely easy and quick to make.

Peppermint Bark Popcorn:
10 cups of popped corn
14 oz bag of white chocolate chips
5 finally crushed candy canes
1 cup of milk chocolate chips

Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave and stir into popcorn. Sprinkle with 3/4 of the crushed candy canes. Spread out on wax paper. Melt the milk chocolate chips and put in a pastry bag to drizzle on the popcorn and sprinkle with remaining candy cane. This literally took 10 minutes! If you like peppermint flair stir in 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract into the milk chocolate! So good.

Of course what holiday is complete without good old chex mix. I just use the recipe on the box and use all cashews. I also cook it in the oven not the microwave like suggested. The crunch is so much better. 250 degrees for an hour stirring every 15 minutes. Wondering if these will last till football on Sunday....
