This is a recipe for a fun candy filled popcorn that has been come to be known as unicorn poop popcorn in our family! I was making a batch of this for one of our movie nights a couple of years ago, (I think it was Trolls) and my husband commented “That looks like unicorn poop” of course the kids went crazy and hence the name stuck!
Most recently, I added this to the goodie boxes for the girls’s joint Unicorn themed party. My girls were born 6 days apart, so I hope they get used to that idea! It took a bit of work so decide on a theme they would both love but in the end we decided on unicorns!
This recipe is easy enough that kids can help, too. It’s good messy fun. Although you may end up with less finished popcorn!
Ok so this “recipe” if you could even call it that brings together 3 things that I LOVE dearly:
Popcorn, themes, and Simplicity!!
So popcorn is a go-to snack in our house. We love it and we love ALL kinds of it. And (bonus!) its whole grain!Themes, because this recipe can be customized to fit any theme or holiday!
And simplicity because as it is already easy, you can make it even easier!
1.Popcorn – I air pop mine but you can use pre-popped or microwavable. Most of those will have butter and or salt but it makes so a great salty sweet version.
2.Candy melts in coordinating colors
3.Sprinkles, cotton candy, rock candy, etc.
1.Lay the popped popcorn on a flat layer on a foil lines cookie sheet
(or for super easy clean up, grab disposable cookie sheets from Dollar Tree)
2.Melt candy melts via directions on the back in your microwave
3.Use a spood to drizzle the colors. I added the pink first, and then tossed the popcorn to give it a base color of pink, then frizzed on the other colors. Go crazy, you can’t mess this up, I promise!
4.Add toppings while candy melts are still wet so they adhere to the popcorn better.
5.Let it sit out to “dry” if you choose and Serve! I told you that was easy! Here’s the link for the popcorn maker we have!
