St. Patrick's Day Popcorn - Leprechaun Pop

Materials

What you will need:

  • 1 bag of microwave popcorn light or regular butter (full sized, not snack), or 4-5 cups of air popped popcorn or smart pop.
  • 1 cup green chocolate candy wafer melts
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate wafer candy melts
  • St. Patrick's Day sprinkles
  • Green Mint M&Ms

Preparation

Top o' the morning to you! What a fun way to enjoy a St. Patrick's day snack, making this fun and festive candy popcorn snack.


How to assemble:

  • Step 1: Pop the popcorn and remove any unpopped kernels. If using ready popped popcorn, put 4-5 cups in a large bowl.
  • Step 2: Place the candy melts in small bowls or glass measuring cups, one for each color. Microwave the green candy for 30 seconds then stir, repeat in 20 second intervals until melted and smooth. (Note: chocolate will continue to melt once taken out of microwave)
  • Step 3: Drizzle the melted green chocolate candy over of the bowl of popcorn and toss to coat (use a silicone spatula to ensure you get it all out.) Toss the popcorn with your hands until nicely coated. Then spread out onto a large serving platter. Add some green sugar sprinkles at this point.
  • Step 4: Melt the white candy melts and drizzle over the platter of popcorn, immediately top generously with St. Patrick's themed candy sprinkles. They will adhere to the melted white chocolate candy.

Finally, toss on the M&Ms. Allow the Leprechaun Popcorn to cool a few minutes before serving.

*this treat can be put into clear bags for pot of gold gift giving to friends and neighbours.
