Polka Dot Party Popcorn

Thursday, August 21, 2014

We served this candy coated popcorn for Jaxon's birthday party, and it was a hit! It was super simple to make and now that I've made it, I see that the possibilities are endless. Try black and orange sprinkles for Halloween popcorn or red and green sprinkles for Christmas popcorn.

As written, the multicolored sprinkles create a colorful effect perfect for a polka dot or rainbow birthday party. Enjoy!


Polka Dot Party Popcorn

10 cups popped popcorn (unpopped kernels removed)
12 oz. bag vanilla candy melts
multicolored candy sprinkles

  1. Add popped popcorn to a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  2. Line two medium baking sheets with wax paper.
  3. Melt candy melts in microwave according to package directions. Stir until smooth.
  4. Pour melted candy melts over popcorn and stir to combine.
  5. Turn out coated popcorn onto lined baking sheets in one layer.
  6. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles and allow to cool.
  7. Break apart and serve.
Note: I've found that the easiest way to remove unpopped kernels from popped popcorn is to empty the popcorn into a large bowl, top the bowl with a baking rack, and then turn the bowl upside down. The unpopped kernels should fall through the grid of the baking rack.
