Candied Puff Corn

My sister Kristie made this and I had to share it with you. I know the name isn't that original, but she didn't have a name for this recipe and I like descriptive rather than abstract names when it comes to food.

**Warning** do not make if you are eating healthy. You will not be able to stop eating it. 

Now that you have been fairly warned, here goes.

Candied Puff Corn
1 large pkg of puffed corn.
1 11oz pkg of caramels (cut into 1/4)
1 12oz pkg of M&M minis
1 24oz pkg of white almond bark
\1 tbsp vegetable shortening (no substitutions)

Combine first 3 ingredients in the largest bowl you can find.  In a separate microwave safe container break the almond bark into small squares and drop in the spoonful of vegetable shortening. Microwave on high until mostly melted. stir periodically, do not burn, do not add any other thinning agent. (White chocolate is not the same as regular chocolate. ) When it is about 2/3 melted removed from microwave and stir until fully melted. this will keep you from burning it, and it will have time to cool enough that the M&M's won't melt.

Pour white chocolate mixer over the puffed corn, M&M's, and Caramels. Gently stir to coat, then spread out on waxed paper to cool. Serve, keep any extras tightly covered.

(Who am I kidding? Keep it sealed while transporting to party and be discreet when you are at the party and try to lick the bowl clean.)
