There is nothing sweeter than turning up the color on your popcorn snack with this super fun rainbow popcorn.
We are gearing up for an exciting St. Patrick’s Day and coming up with some fun St. Patrick’s Day snacks. I”ve been making different versions of this rainbow popcorn for some time, but realized I hadn’t let you all in on my super fun, colorful treat that has the kids asking for more!
An interesting conversation came up with a few Mom’s from our school about whether or not we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, and whether or not the Leprechaun visits your house the morning of St. Patrick’s Day. I found it super intriguing as I have not really done that at our house. For kindergarten at our school the teachers have the children create a leprechaun trap and that was a big hit at our house, but as for the leprechaun at my house, it hasn’t been a thing. Is that a thing that happens at your house? Is it like the Elf on the Shelf? I really need to learn more about this and report back.
In any case, we do love celebrating with fun St. Patrick’s Day treats in the kids lunches when it falls during the school week. One of my absolute favorites is our Edible Crayons with free printable.
This year St. Patrick’s Day is falling on a weekend and so we’re most likely going to be hanging with friends and possibly picnicking and so I wanted to come up with something that everyone can enjoy… like rainbow popcorn!
I recommend using your favorite popcorn for this recipe. I used the organic sea salt popcorn as the chocolate provides the sweet and the salt cuts through the popcorn a bit.
Once you’ve popped your popcorn, add the pop kernels to a parchment paper lined baking sheet.Grab your rainbow colored candy melts and in a double boiler or in the microwave melt each color.Using a spoon drizzle each color over the popcornOnce you’ve added all your colors, letting the rainbow popcorn sit and even refrigerate it for a bit is good for hardening up the candy.
