Easter Popcorn

The older I get, the more that Spring is becoming my favorite season. Everything is bright, colorful, and full of life. I think that’s why I have always loved all of the fun pastel colors that are associated with Spring.

That’s why making sweet and salty popcorn snacks that are full of bright colors is something that I love to do with my kids.

If you are looking for additional Springtime recipes that are easy and fun, I have a few that just might interest you. Like my Easter Bunny Cupcakes. My family loves Peeps, so these cupcakes that are topped with Peeps are a fun treat. My brightly colored Easter Deviled Eggs are an absolute must for your Easter appetizer table.

Baking with Tweens

I am currently teaching my tween how to bake and read recipes. Teaching your littles how to cook not only teaches them math, but also science, and it teaches reading. What better way is there to learn then while having fun?

We will be doing a weekly feature now called Tween Tuesday and we will be showcasing different recipes that I am making with my youngest. This should be quite interesting.

FAQ About The Recipe

How long does White Chocolate Popcorn last?

Normally a couple of days. Once it’s dried, you will want to put it into an air-tight container and store it in a cool and dry place.

What kind of chocolate melts the best?

I happen to be a huge fan of Ghirardelli chocolate wafers, however, they aren’t always available. A close second are the ones by Merckens. I also use chocolate chips with just a touch of Crisco shortening.

What is the best way to melt chocolate?

I find it easier to control the melting when I use a double boiler. However, you can also microwave the chocolate according to the directions on the package.

Is it easier to drizzle melted chocolate with a spoon or a plastic squeeze bottle?

I prefer using a squeeze bottle. I think I have better control of the amount of chocolate that’s being drizzled.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 bags unpopped popcorn or 4 cups of popped popcorn
  • 12 oz white chocolate chips or candy wafers
  • Sprinkles
  • Candy

Instructions
 

  • On a flat surface, lay out a silicone mat or a large piece of wax paper.
  • Prepare the popcorn if it's unpopped. Then add it on to the prepared surface.
  • Next either melt the chocolate chips using a double boiler or the microwave. If you are using the double boiler method, let the water get to a simmer. Do NOT let it get to a rolling boil. That will be too hot to properly melt the chocolate. Slowly stir the chips occasionally so that they thoroughly melt.
  • Once the chocolate is melted, you can either keep in the bowl and drizzle the chocolate all over the popcorn or you can add it to a plastic squeeze bottle by using a funnel and drizzle it that way.
  • Then add on your favorite sprinkles and candy. You can also add pretzels or whatever else your family prefers.
  • Let the mixture set until the chocolate has hardened. Break apart then enjoy!
