The cutest (and easiest!) Christmas party snack ever, with slightly salted popcorn covered in candy coating and topped with cheery sprinkles.
8cupspopped popcornabout 1/3 cup kernels, slightly salted
10ounceseggnog-flavored candy melts or white chocolate chips
2 - 3tablespoonsredgreen, and white sprinkles (nonpareils)
Add popcorn to a large bowl.
Place candy melts or white chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power in 15-second increments, stirring every 15 seconds, just until melted. It usually takes me about 1 minutes and a half with my microwave.
Working quickly, pour melted candy melts or white chocolate over the popcorn and gently but quickly stir until the popcorn is coated.
Top liberally with the sprinkles, stirring once or twice to help distribute the sprinkles.
Spread on a parchment-paper-lined cookie sheet and allow to harden, about one hour. Break up and serve.
Keeps up to three days at room temperature when kept in an airtight container.
