My 11 year old came home from school the other day and said that he wanted to make popcorn and put white chocolate on it. It reminded me of this gobble and I decided I had to make it.
One of the fun things about this gobble is that you can coordinate the color of the candy covered chocolate pieces (M&M's) with any holiday or occasion. You can also use colored candy melts in place of the white chocolate - think green for St Patty's day coming up soon.
If you like chocolate, I mean REALLY like chocolate (is there anyone who doesn't?), you can double the amount of chocolate you drizzle on the gobble. Just wait for the first chocolate to harden, then stir to break up and drizzle another 2 oz of each of the chocolates. Mmmmmm
