Servings 8 servings (ish)

Ingredients

Nutella Popcorn:

  • 8 cups freshly popped salted popcorn
  • 1/3 cup chocolate hazelnut butter *see note
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoons cocoa powder

White Chocolate Pretzels:

  • 3 cups snack pretzels
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2/3 cups dairy free white chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 cups gelatin free vaniila mini marshmallows

Instructions

Nutella Popcorn:

  1. Pour the popcorn into a large bowl with plenty of room for stirring. (You can use your preferred method of popping such as air-popped. I prefer stovetop method.) Melt the nutella and coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium low heat. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and salt then pour over popcorn. Use a large rubber spatula to gently fold it over and into the popcorn until evenly coated.
  2. Mix the cocoa and powdered sugar in a small seperate dish and sprinkle over popcorn. Toss gently to cover all peices, then spread corn on a parchment lined tray to dry for at least 30 minutes.

White Chocolate Pretzels:

  1. Melt the white chocolate and coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium low heat. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and salt then pour over pretzels in a medium bowl. Gently toss to coat all the pretzels evenly then sprinkle powdered sugar over them and spread out on tray another parchment lined tray to dry.
  2. Once dry, pour the popcorn back into the large bowl and add pretzels and marshmallows. Toss together and enjoy munching it with friends while watching a favorite movie!
  3. This mix is best eaten fresh, but it should last in an airtight container for up to a week. If you plan to save this for a later time it's best to store each part seperately and mix right before eating. Otherwise the popcorn absorbs the small amount of liquid in the mallows and you get soggy pretzels, tough popcorn, and hard mallows

Recipe Notes

If you live in a humid climate (like me) then the nutella popcorn will be best made as close to eating as possible. However, if it has to be made ahead, or you have some leftover, and the texture gets tough I've found that toasting it at 350 for about 5 minutes can totally save it's life. Just watch closely not to burn it. You can make homemade nutella or use a brand of chocolate hazelnut butter that doesn't have dairy. (Btw, Nutella brand does)
