avalanche popcorn

last night i played host to a kids sleepover.  
to say that my own littles L & R were excited would have been the understatement of the century.
they had everything planned out, requested a menu days in advance, and were eagerly counting down the hours until the festivities began.
they insisted on a make your own pizza building dinner {with the objection being to pile as many toppings and cheese as humanly possible} followed by a movie & popcorn watching date, and a pancake & bacon breakfast the following morning.

fact:  when hosting your first kids sleepover you need to up your normal popcorn game in order to make a good impression with everyone 8 and under.
and because my popcorn game is strong, i opted for 'avalanche popcorn' 
melted white chocolate and peanut butter, plus marshmallows and rice krispies, and a final drizzle of more melted milk chocolate.
i think i may have made some new friends and impressed myself at the same time.
