I’m not that into popcorn, but I do love birthday cake. I think I’m going to try this some time.

Birthday Cake Popcorn

 

  • 1 bag of popcorn, popped
  • 8 ounces of white chocolate candy coating, melted (I used Ghiradelli white chocolate and a handful of white chocolate melts)
  • 4 heaping teaspoons of yellow cake mix
  • Mini M&Ms
  • Assorted sprinkles

Pop popcorn and spread out on a paper towel, removing any kernels or burnt pieces, and place in a large bowl. Mix in mini M&Ms. 

Melt white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Stir in cake mix until smooth, then stir in about 3 teaspoons of sprinkles. Immediately pour over popcorn. Using a wooden spoon, mix the popcorn and M&Ms until completely coated. 
Pour out onto wax paper or into a wax-paper lined jelly roll pan and spread into a single layer. Sprinkle with sprinkles until festive, then let cool and harden. Break into pieces and enjoy!

Random food preservation tip that I recently learned (and have more recently tested). 

To keep your carton of ice cream/frozen yogurt from forming ice crystals/freezer burn, after you open it, put an oversized piece of plastic wrap on top of the container, before you put the lid back on it.  I tested it, after 3 weeks, still perfect with the plastic wrap.  Without it, it only took 4 days for little crystally bits to start forming.
