So, what do you do with those leftover scraps of chocolate coating from making things like Oreo Truffles and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles? And that 1/2" or so of chocolate left in the bottom of your dipping bowl?? Well ...

I'll admit that this was not my first thought of what to do. My original thinking was "Oh, I have a bag of pretzels in the pantry. I'll get those out and make some chocolate-covered pretzels." When I opened the pantry door, there it was ... a microwave popcorn packet staring at me. And it had to be done. I threw that popcorn packet into the microwave, melted all my chocolate scraps together, and then tossed the two together in a big ol' bowl.

Next time I think I'll throw in some pecans, cashews, peanuts, or other nuts. It'll be a homemade version of Harry & David's Moose Munch! Oh, how I love that stuff.
P.S. - This treat received my Daddy's (our official family popcorn fanatic's) seal of approval!!
