Easy Gourmet Popcorn With Sprinkles

Salty, sweet, and topped with sprinkles, this easy gourmet popcorn will be a hit with kids ages 4 to 94.

Summer is a special time for me.  So many in my family were born throughout the summer.  In honor of summer babies everywhere, I made a sweet and simple popcorn treat that I call Funfetti Popcorn. This gourmet popcorn can be made in a jiffy, but you have to wait a little while for the almond bark to cool before digging in.  Below are the easy step-by-step instructions.  I hope you enjoy it!

How To Make Gourmet Popcorn

Pour a bag of pre-popped popcorn into a large bowl.

Take one package of almond bark – the kind that you heat the bark in the provided tray.  Microwave it according to package directions.  It only took my microwave 60 seconds to get it to the soft stage you see below.  Although it looks like a few hard chunks, those were actually soft and I only had to stir them for a little bit for them to melt into the rest of the bark.

Spoon or pour the melted almond bark onto the popcorn.  (My large bowl was already being used to hold watermelon, so I used a 9 x 13 cake pan.)

Stir the popcorn and almond bark to try to make sure all of the popcorn gets coated.

Sprinkle with *sprinkles* and let cool.  You can speed the cooling/drying process by placing it in the refrigerator, if you’d like.
