Halloween Party Popcorn

This fun purple popcorn was inspired by this recipe that I came across on Pinterest.

Pop some popcorn. I used kernels and a pot on the stove, but microwave popcorn would work too. Maybe just use unbuttered…

Melt purple candy melts (or any color you want) in the microwave. (I wanted my purple a little darker, so I added Royal Purple food coloring to the melted candy melts. )

**Just a heads up – regular food coloring will thicken candy melts – do not add food coloring to them unless you’re doing something other than dipping… when you’re mixing it onto popcorn or drizzling it over something, it’s okay if it’s a little thicker.

While the candy melts are still wet, add sprinkles.

I used Halloween colored quins, an orange/yellow/white non-pareil mix, black dragees, and some white bone shaped sprinkles.

You can also drizzle a second color of candy melts over the popcorn before or after adding sprinkles. I went with neon green.

The recipe that inspired these had candy mixed in. I didn’t have enough mini M&M’s leftover, and nothing else to throw in, so I skipped the candy this time.

I had this popcorn out at our Halloween party, but not much of it was eaten. I also had a chocolate fountain set up and let’s face it – most people will always choose chocolate. :)

I packaged up some of the popcorn for our neighbor kids for Halloween night. Can’t really give away homemade stuff anymore because it can’t be trusted. But I knew the neighbor kids would at least be able to enjoy it!

This popcorn is so easy that you still have time to make some by tonight!

    I would have totally eaten this over a chocolate fountain! I like the salty/sweet combo :) Plus, I ALWAYS get chocolate on me with the fountains… Love the fun colors!
