With rainbows and gold on my mind, I’ve been thinking of things that are worth their weight in gold from my own life experiences:

1) Diapers on a 5 hour airplane flight. (Not for me…for my baby :))
2) An Ipod with more than two songs on it while running a marathon. ABBA, I can never listen to you again. Sorry.
3) A babysitter that is young enough to text but mature enough to know that cake isn’t actually considered dinner for kids AND letting my kids play with my bras and throw them around the house isn’t gonna win brownie points with me.

From your experience, what is worth its weight in gold?
I know I’ve been on a popcorn kick lately but THIS popcorn has FRITO’S in it!! The salty/sweet combo is killer. You can customize it for every holiday. You can usually find bags of green M&Ms at Target but I just had the regular bag so I let my little munchkins pick out all of the green M&Ms with their freshly washed hands (germaphobe here). I made this for game night and the Denneys and McMullins gave it the stamp of approval.

Toss fritos with your popcorn and then coat with white chocolate. Sweet and salty is the perfect combo.
Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 16 servings


  • 8 cups of popped popcorn
  • 1 lb. 16 ounces white chocolate or almond bark
  • 2 cups Frito's, crushed
  • M&M’s


  • Pop corn according to package directions. I used 2 bags of microwave popcorn. Put popped corn and crushed Fritos into a large bowl. Make sure to get all of the unpopped kernels ("grannies") out or someone will break their tooth. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until melted. Pour melted chocolate over popcorn mixture and stir to coat completely. Pour onto a wax paper or parchment paper lined cookie sheet and sprinkle with M&Ms. Allow to cool and dry.
