    Hello, I Heart Naptime friends! My kids and I love the making snacks that have a delicious salty/sweet combination, and our typical go-to for the salty is popcorn with the addition of a lot of sweets!

    There are some consistent Christmas characters that appear over at The Melrose Family. You can easily find Rudolph and certainly the Grinch. My girls love the holidays and we especially love cute snack ideas that they can help make like this Melted Rudolph Popcorn. It’s simple, easy and so good!

    I was inspired by these simple Rudolph candies to make the popcorn. The face is a mini peanut butter cup with googley eye candies, and a red M&M as the nose. The antlers are a mini pretzel broken in half. It’s some serious cuteness on a plate. I’m pretty sure I threw back at least four of these guys before finally making the popcorn. I just can’t resist mini peanut butter cups.

    We usually make our popcorn recipes by covering it in melted white chocolate, which you certainly can still do. Check out our Melted Snowman Popcorn for the recipe using white chocolate.

    Melted Rudolph Popcorn is so delicious – and easy to make!

    For our Melted Rudolph Popcorn I used melted marshmallows instead. My girls like it with the marshmallow because the marshmallow makes it gooey. You pull apart the popcorn and you get the strings of marshmallow coming off it. What kid doesn’t love gooey snacks right?
