Let cool completely before serving.
Let It Cool Completely: Before storing, ensure the Christmas Crunch is entirely cool to prevent moisture build-up.
Airtight Container: Use an airtight container to keep it fresh and prevent it from going stale.
Room Temperature: Store the container at room temperature, away from direct sunlight or heat.
Keep Dry: Avoid exposing it to moisture or humidity to maintain its crunch.
Following these steps should help keep your Christmas Crunch popcorn fresh and tasty for about a week.Alternative Option for mixing:Another option for coating the popcorn is right after it is popped, you can put it in a very large bowl. Pour 3/4 of the mixture and toss with a silicone spoon.Then toss in the toppings (M&M's, sprinkles and pretzels - but save a few for the next step).Next, lay it on the baking sheet and drizzle with the remaining mixture and sprinkle the remaining toppings on top of the drizzled chocolate.
