Party Popcorn

This candy coated popcorn makes for a sweet and salty treat we can’t get enough of. Use any color of candy melts to compliment your party’s decor or theme. Serve it up at any celebration, package it up in popcorn boxes or cello bags to send home with guests as the perfect party favor!

Ingredients:

-One 12oz bag of vanilla flavored Wilton Candy Melts. These come in a multitude of colors and can be found in the baking section of your local craft store. For this recipe we used white.

-8 cups of air popped popcorn

-Sprinkles or nonpareils. These can be any color you’d like as well. For this recipe we used rainbow sprinkles.

-Salt to taste

Directions:

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide popped popcorn between the two baking sheets. Following the package directions, melt the candy coating. The microwave method works beautifully! Once your candy is melted, drizzle it over the popcorn, dividing it evenly between the two baking sheets. Using a rubber spatula, fold and turn popcorn to coat in the melted candy. Lightly salt the coated popcorn and add sprinkles while the candy coating is still soft. Allow the coated popcorn to set up and harden for about an hour. Once it’s dry break up the popcorn into smaller pieces. Store in an airtight container until you’re ready to package up or serve.
