My little helper and I have been browsing Pinterest lately looking for fun birthday party ideas. (Someone is fast approaching her 3rd birthday and won’t let anyone forget!) When we came across a recipe for “Party Popcorn” it was love at first sight. We love popcorn in our house and the idea of adding a little sweetness and fun was a no-brainer. We popped our own for the first time – no microwave stuff here. This is Emery’s “Hey! We’re cooking. I think this is fun!” face as we waited for the popcorn to finish popping. Here’s the recipe we used to make stovetop popcorn.
Once it was all popped, we poured it into another dish and added butter and salt to taste.
Now this is where it gets fun. We chopped up a white chocolate bar, melted it in the first pan and poured it over the popcorn.
Emery sprinkled to her heart’s content, pouring as many bright sprinkles into her hand as she did the popcorn bowl. She kept saying, “Look at all the colors, mommy. It’s so pretty!”
Here’s how it turned out. One thing I can say, it was easy and delicious! Not one piece was left.
Party Popcorn How-To:
Start with 8ish cups of popcorn (1 bag of microwaved popcorn or the amount this recipe yields). Melt about 6 ounces of white chocolate or candy melts of your choice. Pour melted chocolate/candy over popcorn and mix quickly until covered. Add sprinkles, let cool and enjoy!
