My daughter and I had fun making some patriotic popcorn for the 4th of July! Our local store had mini M&M’s and Captain America cereal, star sprinkles, and tiny, red sprinkles and white chocolate candy melts to make it all stick together.

It’s also a super quick and easy treat. We bagged it up in cellophane bags and gave it to all of our neighbors, along with homemade flag cookies. There’s lots of other fun things that could be added in, like the red, white and blue circus animal cookies, Jelly Bellys, or any patriotic candy or treat.

Melted white chocolate candy melts on half of the popcorn. That way the toppings will stick before it dries.

We added the toppings to it while the candy melts are still wet. Then we did the same thing on the second half.

Here it is in all of its 4h of July goodness!

    What is the point of laying all the popcorn out, if you only put candy on one half? Seems like making a bigger mess to deal with than necessary.

    Thanks for your comment, I’ve clarified in the post that we just did one half at a time so the candy would stick to the wet candy melts. Then we did the next half!
