Red, white and blue are everywhere right now. Let me show you just how easy it is to take plain popcorn and turn it into a festive red, white and blue treat!
NEED TO SAVE MONEY
ON YOUR GROCERY BILL?
- 7 oz bag Boom Chick a Pop Sweet and Salty Popcorn (or equivalent amount made stove top, air popped or microwaved)
- 6-8 squares of Almond Bark (melted in a double boiler or medium low heat)
- red and blue m&ms
- red white and blue jimmies (or other candies)
- mini marshmallows
- edible dust glitter
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. This makes for super easy cleanup!
Evenly spread out the popcorn on the parchment paper.
Add the melted and then cooled bark to the a large ziplock bag. Cut a small sliver of one of the bottom corners off the bag to make a make-shift pipping bag.
Drizzle the melted bark all over the popcorn.
Top with candies, marshmellows, etc.
Sprinkle with the edible dust glitter.
Let the bark cool 100% until it hardens. The candy will stick to the bark as it cools.
Eat this as a simple afternoon snack, or serve it up in decorative bags, mason jars, festive cups, etc. These are perfect for a red white and blue celebration, or just because.
