Sweet Easter Popcorn {recipe}

How to Make Sweet Easter Popcorn is easy and perfect to make with little helpers because it’s fun to mix with your hands! I’ve found a few variations of this recipe online and decided I had to try it because popcorn with add-ons just makes me happy.  Plus, I’ve tried a variation of this recipe with Chex mix {Vanilla Chex Mix} and my kids loved it.  This Easter Popcorn Recipe uses popcorn, white chocolate chips, shortening (makes all the difference in consistency) a lemon cake mix (yummy), and candy sprinkles.  The mix is perfect for Spring or Easter because it’s light and just looks and tastes cheery!  It’s a great homemade gift idea for friends and neighbors, too!

Sweet Easter Popcorn Ingredients

Sweet Easter Popcorn

  • 12 oz bag melted white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup lemon cake mix
  • 8 cups plain popped popcorn
  • food coloring {optional}
  • Sprinkles

Directions {step-by-step}

Sweet Easter Popcorn

MELT white chocolate chips in microwave safe dish in microwave.  My 12 oz. bag took about 2.5 minutes.  I’d recommend melting your chips in 30 second increments.

Sweet Easter Popcorn

ADD the vegetable shortening to the melted chocolate.  This is key is making the mixture the perfect consistency for mixing.

Sweet Easter Popcorn

ADD food coloring if you want. Just add enough drops for desired color.  Stir in.

ADD cake mix to the chocolate mixture.

POUR the chocolate mixture over the 8 cups of popped popcorn {make sure you don’t have any un-popped kernels in there!}.  I’d recommend digging in with your hands to get it mixed if you have little helpers because it’s fun for them, but if you are doing this alone, using a spatula works just fine and is way less messy.

Sweet Easter Popcorn

SPREAD mix onto wax paper and then add sprinkles.

LET cool.
