The Freshman Cook: Monster Munch and Pinterest Blog Hop

Please Rate this Recipe

It is time again for our Pinterest Inspired Blog Hop!  Today I made some Monster Munch from the blog, Our Best Bites, authored by Sara and Kate. When I saw the picture of this Monster Munch on Pinterest, I immediately knew I would be making it. I actually made 4 bags and they are going in the Halloween care package I am sending to my son and his roommates. It is incredibly delicious. I know they will love it, and so will you!

Monster Munch

  • 1 package Almond Bark (1 pound)
  • 12 cups cooked Popcorn 
  • 1 cups Candy Corn
  • 2 cups Pretzels
  • 1 cup Reese’s Pieces

I made the following changes to the original recipe:

I added the pretzels instead of peanuts, and

increased the amount to 2 cups.

I increased the amount of Reeses Pieces to 1 cup.

Check out Our Best Bites for the original recipe.

Have a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper 

ready when you take this off the stove.

Start your almond bark melting on the stove in a double boiler.

Keep it on low for the best results. 

As you are preparing the rest of the recipe, 

just stir it a couple times.

I broke each pretzel into about 3 pieces. I thought

these might be too big.

Place your popcorn in a very large bowl.

Add the pretzels, candy corn, and Reese’s Pieces.

Mix it together so it is well combined.

Once your almond bark is melted, 

pour it into your bowl over the popcorn, candy, and pretzels.

Mix it really well. 

Pour it onto your prepared baking sheet, 

and spread it all over the sheet.

Let it cool.

Once cool, crack the popcorn bark into pieces.

You could put it in a bowl to “munch” on,……

or wrap it up in these cute clear bags.

What a great treat, that everyone would love to get!

Happy Halloween!
