Red White Blue Patriotic Popcorn Prep

Instructions

  1. Prepare the popcorn using your preferred method (air popper, stovetop, microwave).
  2. Place the red, white, and blue candy melts in separate microwave-safe bowls. Microwave each bowl for 1 minute, stir, and continue microwaving in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until fully melted.
  3. Transfer each color of the melts to a separate small piping bag. You can also use a zip-top bag with a tiny corner snipped off for drizzling.
  4. Spread the popped popcorn on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Drizzle the melted red, white, and blue candy melts over the popcorn in a back-and-forth motion.
  6. Quickly add the M&Ms and decorative sprinkles evenly over the popcorn to ensure they stick before the drizzle hardens.
  7. Allow the candy melts to harden at room temperature (about 15-20 minutes). To speed things up, you can also put the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
  8. After the candy has set, break the popcorn into clusters. Serve in a large bowl or distribute into individual serving bags for a party.
