Your family will be surprised when they taste this white chocolate covered popcorn and it’s easy to make!
8 cups Popped popcorn
1 lb. white chocolate candy coating
¼ cup Peanut butter
Put chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave and heat until melted. Mix well. Be sure to watch it closely so it doesn’t burn. Pour over popcorn and mix well. Spread on a cookies sheet to cool. Let is set up overnight or put in the fridge for a quick set up. Break up in chunks. You can add nuts and Rice Krispies for more crunch (do this before you pour the melted chocolate).

This is a fun treat to serve for St. Patrick’s Day or anytime you have your grandchildren over. They will especially enjoy helping. Just follow the directions on the Jello package and drop some Swedish Fish candies in the bottom. After the Jello has set up slightly add other fish to the sides and top.

I think I’ll try this with olive oil and seasonings instead of pizza sauce.

I’ve never made pot pies because I was always afraid of messing up the crust but I think I could manage this one with phyllo dough.
Are there recipes you haven’t tried for fear of them not working out?
Chicken Pie A La Mississippi
2 onions, diced
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
2 chicken breasts and 2 thighs, skinnless and boneless, diced
1/2 cup vegetable or chicken broth
1/4 cup white wine
2 celery stalks, slice
1 bay leaf
4 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons flour
1 sheet frozen phyllo dough, thawed
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a pan, saute the onions in the oil. Add the chicken, broth, wine, celery, and bay leaf. Simmer 10 minutes.
2 In a separate pan, melt the butter; then add the flour and pepper, whisking briskly for 5 minutes to form a roux.
3. Place the chicken mixture in a 2-quart casserole. Add the roux and stir. Drape the phyllo dough over the top and bake for 20 – 25 minutes.
