Two Delicious Party Popcorns

Fall is a great time to host a movie night with girlfriends, couples, or even just a movie date for you and your special someone. While picking the right movie is key, I personally think the snacks are just as important (don’t you?). Popcorn immediately comes to mind when I think about movie night snacks. It’s a great little munchie to have on hand, and it can be salty or sweet…or even a little of both. Popcorn is also packed with fiber and goes great with most of my favorite refreshments.

Here are two of my all time favorite popcorn recipes that you MUST try!

Cakebatterpopcorn

CAKE BATTER POPCORN

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup un-popped popcorn
  • 1 cup melting white chocolate
  • ½ cup dry yellow cake mix
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles

Instructions:

  1. Pop popcorn as directed, then place onto parchment-lined baking sheet.
  2. Melt white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and add cake mix to chocolate once melted. Immediately pour the white chocolate/cake batter mix over popcorn and mix until popcorn is evenly coated.
  3. Add sprinkles and mix once more. Let sit at room temperature until hardened (about 15 minutes).

ALMOND JOY POPCORN

Ingredients:

  2. Melt white and dark chocolate in two separate bowls and sprinkle over popcorn. Mix lightly until evenly distributed throughout.
