This Fourth of July you HAVE to make Patriotic Popcorn! It's a yummy snack to munch on during the fireworks that's effortless to make and includes CHOCOLATE! It's definitely going to be a crowd pleaser. All you need is popcorn (simply salted, no butter), chocolate melts (red and blue) and sprinkles (optional).
First, pop the popcorn and place it on parchment or wax paper. Then, melt the candy melts in separate bowls and drizzle it over the popcorn. I just used a spoon to drizzle but you can also DIY a decorating bag by putting the melted chocolate in a plastic bag and cut the edge a little bit.
Before the popcorn hardens, add the sprinkles. Let it sit for about 5-8 minutes or until the chocolate hardens. If you need to expedite the hardening process, you can stick the popcorn in the fridge for 5 minutes. Once hardened, break the popcorn into pieces and serve in little bags or festive cups.
- 4 cups popped popcorn
- ½ cup red candy melts
- ½ cup blue candy melts
- Sprinkles (optional)
