The biggest hit, snack wise, at Lennox’s Barbie birthday party was the Pink Princess Sprinkle Popcorn!
It was really easy and inexpensive to make and they kids just loved it. You can make 1 back of popcorn or 10 bags of popcorn and it wont take much time at all! The other benefit to this snack? You can make it ahead of time (I made it the day before) and it will still be good by the time of the party – just store it in a big ziplock bag! Many people asked me how I made it, here is the recipe!
Pink Princess Sprinkle Popcorn Recipe
- 3+ Bags of Popcorn (I used Orville Redenbacher’s Natural Simply Salted as it didn’t have butter on it, which kept it White!) Use as many bags as you want.
- White Chocolate Melting Chips (or Almond Bark)
- Food Coloring (desired color – I used neon pink)
How to Make Pink Princess Sprinkle Party Popcorn:
- Pop all the popcorn you wish to make into Sprinkle Party Popcorn! I kept it all in the bags until I was done to help keep it a little warm.
- Melt your white chocolate discs or almond bark in the microwave as directed to on the package.
- While the chocolate is melting, empty all the popcorn (trying to remove unpopped kernals) into a large casserole dish. I used one of the tinfoil disposable roasting pans for easy clean up!
- Once the chocolate is melted, add in a little food color to give the chocolate a tint of the color you are looking for.
- pour the chocolate over the popcorn and mix together. I had to mix it together with my hands, as it was all sticking together. Using some disposable gloves helps not make such a mess as well!
- Once the chocolate is all over the popcorn, as desired, sprinkle multi-colored sprinkles or non-perils on top of the popcorn.
- I then spread the popcorn out on cookie sheets or wax paper to let it dry. Once it is dry, you can store the popcorn in large ziplock bags or air tight containers until it’s party time!
That’s it! When I made this, I used the white chocolate melting discs but next time I think I would use almond bark as it seems to melt better and a little thinner, which would help with drizzling the chocolate over the popcorn!
