So, I told you how my sister and I went to see CHEF at the movie theater last week. Of course we had to get some popcorn, despite just having had dinner.
Well, we got a big bag to share between the 2 of us. That’s what I always do with my husband and there are never leftovers. Not so this time. We barely had half of the bag.
So when the next day this bag of movie theater popcorn greeted me on the counter, I knew I had to get creative with it. After all, it’s been over a year since I made fancy popcorn munch.
And what better and fun way to get creative with than SPRINKLES!?
For my funfetti popcorn I had to take it up a notch from just a colorful sprinkles and jimmies mix. Additionally, I also added sparkling silver + gold sugar sprinkles!! Well, hello there glistening beauties…
I can totally see this Sparkling Funfetti Popcorn at a birthday party real soon. For a princess birthday party you could even use pink candy melts instead of white chocolate.
And there is something I can see in the near future – more popcorn munch! Its a perfect quick, no-bake treat for summer and the variations are endless. So get ready for more ‘creative popcorn‘.
- Place popcorn in a large bowl. Melt white chocolate in a water bath on stove top or in the microwave (15 second intervals). Drizzle over popcorn and toss.
- Add funfetti sprinkles and toss again. Spread popcorn on a lined baking sheet and sprinkle with sparkling sprinkles over top.
- Chill until set, then break into chunks. Store airtight.
The recipe can also be easily multiplied.
