Popcorn and pretzels get drizzled with a sweet, sticky sauce that is made with honey, sugar, peanut butter and vanilla. Toss until the popcorn and pretzels are well coated, sprinkle with salt, and add in Lindt HELLO Pretzel Bites. They are the “diamonds” for our party popcorn. They add some major bling!

The Lindt HELLO Pretzel Bites are little pretzel rounds covered in milk chocolate. They are SO good and the perfect finishing touch to the popcorn. I love the sweet and salty combo! If you can’t find them, you can use malt balls or Milk Duds. They are good too!
