Welcome to Popcorn Month here on AMFT! I’ve lined up an all-star list of guest bloggers while I take a little bloggy break. Don’t worry, you’ll still find me on facebook, twitter, instagram, and pinterest. I’m not leaving, I’m working on some big projects for next year and I thought I would take a little vacation before things get crazy busy!
I visit Amanda’s blog more often than I should admit, but she has a wonderful site! Amanda is a wife and the mother of a 3-year old daughter. When she isn’t crafting, baking, or curled up with a good book, you can find her blogging about any of those topics on her website, Midwestern Moms.
It’s National Popcorn Month, so let’s celebrate with some Birthday Cake Popcorn!
Popcorn is a staple in our home.. We pop it during movie night, as a quick snack, and even use it to add something unique to our birthday party menu. Because we often have to drive several hours to attend family birthday parties, we use this recipe as a quick make and take. It is simple to make and also stores and transports very well.
Birthday Cake Popcorn
● 1 Bag Popcorn
● ½ Bag White Chocolate Chips or 2 squares of White Almond Bark
● 2 – 2 ½ Tbsp White Cake Mix
● Colored Sprinkles
1. Pop your popcorn in the microwave. Allow bag to cool and then open. Pour the popcorn in a large bowl and sort through to remove all of the unpopped kernels, hulls, and “old maids.”
You can use either white or buttered popcorn for this recipe.
2. Pour the chocolate chips or almond bark into a microwave safe bowl and heat for approximately 2 minutes. Remove and stir. If chocolate needs additional melting, heat in 30 second intervals to avoid burning the chocolate.
3. Stir 2 – 2 ½ Tbsp of white cake mix into the melted chocolate. I usually start with 2 Tbsp and add another if the mix doesn’t get too thick.
4. Pour chocolate over the popcorn and mix well. Spread out on a sheet of wax paper to allow the chocolate to harden.
5. Before the chocolate has a chance to harden fully, shake sprinkles on top of the popcorn. This may get messy. My advice is: the more sprinkles the better!
6. Allow chocolate to fully harden, then break apart and enjoy!
