Looking for a tasty, easy, kid-friendly snack for the 4th? Try this Patriotic Popcorn recipe!
Hey guys, today I’m over at Evermine’s blog sharing this incredibly-super-simple-even-my-6 1/2 year-old-could-make-it Patriotic Popcorn!
Okay, so popcorn is like my all time favorite snack food. Scoot over Cheetoes, step aside Hershey’s Kisses – it’s just me and you popcorn, and I’m not sharing with anybody!
Seriously, on our movie nights, Josh knows that if he wants any popcorn, he’s going to have to snack dirty. And he does. He grabs huge handfuls while I pretend to not notice and not care…but honestly, it vexes me.
But this popcorn is not your typical salty bowl kerneled snack food. This popcorn is sweet. The kernels are coated in a yummy, velvety white chocolate and then tossed with blue and red M&M’s. These make adorable goody bags for all the youngsters at your 4th of July party. Each kid gets a bag and they can happily munch (and not share with anyone) while they delight in all the fireworks.
Sounds kind of perfect, right?
Head on over to Evermine’s blog to nab the cute labels and goodie bags!
- 6-7 cups popcorn, popped
- 1½ cups white chocolate chips
- 1 cup red M&M’s
- 1 cup blue M&M’s
- In a double boiler, melt the white chocolate till smooth and silky over low heat. Line a 9x13 cookie sheet with wax paper and spread the popped popcorn over it.
- Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the popcorn, and using a spatula, gently toss the popcorn in the white chocolate to make sure the it has evenly coated the popcorn. Sprinkle the M&M’s over the popcorn and allow the white chocolate to set for 15-20 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
