Don’t strain your eyes looking for the candy coated chocolate, they were hiding behind a bag and I completely forgot to add them!! Seriously, it’s just not my week. 😉

Spread the popcorn mixture out on a parchment paper or Silicone lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with the jumbo red hearts and lime green jimmies.

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • I have a 1000 watt microwave, so you may need to adjust your melting times based on your own oven.
  • If it is hot where you live and your chocolate arrives melted, simply place it on a flat surface and resist the urge to play with it, lol
  • Make sure you use a MASSIVE bowl to stir the popcorn. Mine is an old Tupperware Thatsa Bowl.
  • I did not stir in the jumbo heart sprinkles because they are pretty delicate and I did not want them to break apart.
  • If you have any leftover, then store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. The popcorn may be softer after a few days but still quite delicious.

If you can only find the Vibrant Green, your Grinch Popcorn will be this Monster Mash Popcorn shade of green.
