Red White and Blue Popcorn Recipe

How To Make Red, White and Blue Popcorn

  1. Line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper. (This is not going in the oven, so you can use either.) Spread the popped popcorn in a single layer on the lined cookie sheet. You can use pre-packaged plain popcorn or you can pop your own. Read how to make Intsant Pot Popcorn.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the blue candy melts for 45 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir until completely melted and smooth. Using a spoon, drizzle on top of the popcorn. Immediately sprinkle the patriotic nonpareils on top of the melted blue chocolate.
  3. Add the white candy melts to a separate microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 45 seconds. Stir until melted and smooth. Drizzle on top of the popcorn. Before the white chocolate hardens, sprinkle patriotic star confetti sprinkles on top of the melted chocolate.
  4. In a third microwave safe bowl, microwave the red candy melts and drizzle all over the popcorn. Immediately place the red M&M candies on top of the melted red chocolate.
  5. Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator and chill for 1 hour to allow the chocolate to completely harden. Once hardened, break the popcorn into bite-size pieces.
