Pride Funfetti Popcorn

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup popcorn kernels
  • 10 ounces white melts*
  • ½ and ¼ cup funfetti or white cake mix**, divided
  • ½ cup sprinkles

Method

  1. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment/ waxed paper and set aside until needed later
  2. Pop popcorn in your preferred method and salt to taste. Pour into large bowl and set aside.
  3. Melt white candy melts in a microwave in 10 second bursts, stirring frequently until smooth and being careful not to overheat
  4. Add ½ cup of the cake mix to the white chocolate and stir to combine
  5. Immediately pour the candy/cake mix mixture over the popcorn and use a spatula to combine.  Add the remaining ¼ cup of the cake mix and the sprinkles and stir or toss again to combine until thoroughly coated
  6. Spread onto prepared baking sheet in a single layer and top with some extra sprinkles if you like. Leave on the baking sheet until set and then break apart into small clusters. Serve and enjoy!

*White chocolate bars may ne used as well but your final coated popcorn won’t set as hard or be as crunchy.

**Before using the cake batter mix, treat it in the oven by spreading it on a lined baking tray and toasting it at 350 F for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Once cooled, use as per the recipe above. One thing to note is that the sprinkles in the cake mix may discolour a little or melt a bit. More reason to add those extra sprinkles!
