Monster Munch Popcorn: I’m Lovin’ It


All you need is a few minutes and your microwave to make this fall snack in a snap!

Monster Munch or Halloween Popcorn Bark, whatever you want to call it…..I call it crazy good!  It’s a  sweet & salty treat that everyone loves, and the recipe makes a lot so it’s easy to share.  Oreos, marshmallows, buttered popcorn and Orange Candy Melts give it the perfect look for Halloween.

I can’t believe Halloween is less than a week away!  I couldn’t help myself when I found these adorable Wilton Bat Treat Boxes.  I knew they’d be perfect for my Monster Munch!  They’d be adorable for serving the popcorn at a Halloween party or passing out to co-workers, teachers and neighbors.

My girls and I love drinking Hot Chocolate and Latte’s at home.  Instead of using whipped cream or marshmallows on top, I got a silicone bat mold, filled it with COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and popped it in the freezer over night.  The next time I made hot chocolate, I popped a few bats out of the mold and placed them on top for a little Halloween fun!

Sometimes it’s the quick and simple snacks are the best!

Monster Munch Popcorn Bark

Monster Munch Popcorn Bark


  • 1 standard size bag microwave popcorn, popped (I used buttered)
  • 1 package Wilton Orange Candy Melts
  • 15 Oreo Cookies
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows


  1. Place popcorn in a large bowl and remove any un-popped kernels
  2. Use your hands to crush Oreos into popcorn, then add marshmallows and mix with your hands or large spoon
  3. Melt candy according to package directions, then pour over popcorn mixture using a rubber spatula to coat.
  4. Spread candy covered popcorn mixture on to cookie sheet lined with wax paper to cool and harden.
  5. Break up into pieces, store in air tight container.
