Preparation:

  1. Heat vegetable oil in high-walled pot, such as a stockpot, over medium heat. 
  2. Toss in three kernels and place the lid on the pot.
  3. Wait for the kernels to pop.
  4. Once popped, quickly stir in the sugar and then add the remaining kernels.
  5. Replace the lid and listen for the kernels to start popping.
  6. Remove the pot from the stove and gently shake to keep the kernels from burning.
  7. Return the pot to the stove for just a few seconds, then lift and shake again. Repeat this until all the kernels have popped.
  8. Toss the kernels in a bowl and allow the corn to cool and separate.

Pour the melted white chocolate over the popcorn and toss in most of the M&M's and all of the Pretzels. Mix together to coat all the ingredients. Spread the mixture onto baking sheet lined with wax paper and add the remaining M&M's and Sprinkles. Allow 10 minutes to set and enjoy!
