Red white and blue popcorn
Instructions are as such. There is a printable recipe card down below too for your reference. It lists the exact ingredients necessary there.
Time needed: 20 minutes.
Red White and Blue Popcorn
Once you’ve popped your popcorn lay it on a cookie sheet with waxed or parchment paper. We like air popped.
You could alternatively use kettle corn in microwave bags. That is nice and white so the colors will still pop.
When cooled spread melt colored chocolate in microwave for about 45 second stirring halfway through time. Drizzle the melted blue and red chocolate on to the popcorn.
Add a bit of salt now if you want it salty and sweet and not just sweet.
Before the chocolate sets add your sprinkles and/or M&Ms to the top so they stick.
Allow this to sit and cool/harden before putting into a container or setting out. Just break apart. Cute to put into mason jars as a Teacher gift too.
This is just one of our many delicious desserts on The Typical Mom blog. Some of our dessert recipes have fresh fruit in them like our ambrosia. This too could be turned into a blue recipe with a bit of food coloring.
