Hi! I’m Laura from Peace but Not Quiet, and I’m so excited to be here today! Vanessa’s 30 Crafty Days of Halloween is such a fun way to get ready for fall.

So here it is: I don’t do scary. I don’t do haunted houses. I don’t do scary movies. I don’t do ghost stories. I only made it through “Stranger Things” with all the lights on and my husband sitting next to me. I’m a huge scaredy-cat!

But I do love the fun, goofy side of Halloween. I love creative costumes, and great crafts, and silly foods. So I try to tap into that instead of any scary things. You know — more “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” and less “Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers.”

That’s why we love this popcorn. Delicious, a tad quirky, just right for Halloween! It’s perfect for class parties or a fun treat after school one day.


5 c popped popcorn
1 bag orange-colored candy melts
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 container candy eyes (found in the baking aisle, next to cake
1 c orange & black M&Ms



In a medium bowl, microwave semi-sweet chips 15 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until melted. Pour over popcorn and mix with a wooden spoon.

In another bowl, microwave candy melts according to package instructions. Spread popcorn in a 9×13 pan, or spread flat on wax paper and pour orange candy coating over the top. Allow to cool and harden (at least an hour.)


Break mixture into bits and stir in M&Ms and candy eyeballs.


Serve in festive cups or cones (you can even make your own with construction paper, rolled into a cone shape and taped along the side.)
