Christmas Crunch


Christmas Crunch

Christmas crunch is essential a remix of my caramel crunch. All I add is a cup of Christmas colored M&M’s.

This festive mix is great for watching holiday movies with the family, or for bringing to a holiday get together.

Put it in a popcorn bucket and add a gift card to your local movie rental place, for giving to families.

Or divide up a batch  in clear bags, place inside red plastic cups and tie with a ribbon to give as a gifts to several people.
