Great for parties, or special occasions. You can choose any colors you like. In this recipe I used blue and brown. If there is a certain theme, choose those colors.


  • 1 bag unpopped popcorn
  • 2 (12 oz.) bags Wilton candy melts (1 blue and 1 brown)


First start off by popping your bag of popcorn, set aside until needed.

Pour 6 oz. of the blue candy melts into a small microwaveable bowl. Place in the microwave for 60 seconds. Stir. It may need 10 more seconds, it depends on your microwave, but if the chocolates are all smooth and melted it is done. Do the same for the brown chocolate melts.

Pour the popcorn to make an even layer, in a glass pan. With a spoon drizzle the blue all over the popcorn until gone. Then do the same with the brown.

Place in the freezer for about 15 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.

We tried this the other night it tasted great.


  • popcorn
  • melted white chocolate chips
  • rainbow sprinkles


Melt about a cup of white chocolate chips on the stove in a saucepan on medium heat until melted. Pop your popcorn then mix it with your melted chocolate. Then add rainbow sprinkles all over before the chocolate dries. So do it quick. Great party treat!

  • 4 quarts popped corn
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup melted margarine or butter
  • Ad

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter


Add sugar and syrup to melted butter and bring to a boil while stirring. Simmer 3 minutes. Remove from heat; add vanilla and peanut butter; blend. Pour over popcorn and mix well. These can be made into balls.

Tastes SO much better than it sounds and it is economical. I give it away for Christmas treats and everyone wants the recipe.

To make a simple sweet popcorn snack, just sprinkle your freshly popped unbuttered popcorn with salt and sugar to taste. Kids love this and it is much easier to make than kettle corn or caramel corn.

    I am looking for the recipe posted a few weeks ago for some kind of popcorn mixture. The ingredients included microwave popcorn, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and peanut butter.

    Recipe for Choco-PB Kernels. In a large bowl, combine marshmallows and chocolate chips. Meanwhile, per directions, pop the popcorn, removing all un-popped kernels. Add hot popped popcorn to the large bowl (with chocolate chips and marshmallows), stirring gently.

    I had some huckleberry glazed popcorn, by Killian Corn,inc. I am wondering if anyone has a recipe that would be comparable, to the one they use, or perhaps the exact one they use. this would be wonderful.

    I'd use some huckleberry syrup, pour over some popped corn and crisp up in the oven for an hour at 250. Stir every 15 minutes or so. You could try a little at first to test. You might want to add some corn syrup or honey to the syrup to make it thicker. I've never had their huckleberry corn but do think this would make something similar.

    Here's a recipe for Orange Glazed Corn


    2/3 cup orange juice
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    1/8 cup white corn syrup
    1 grated rind of an orange
    1/2 cup popcorn -- popped (pop 1/2 cup of popcorn so the measurement will be much larger when corn is popped.)

    In heavy saucepan, put the orange juice, sugar, corn syrup and rind. Cook over a moderate heat until it reaches 280F on a candy thermometer. Pour over popped corn.
