  • I used Wilton Candy Melts® in Bright White for the base, then Bright Pink, Lavender, Blue, and Yellow. Feel free to use any color combination that you like.
  • I used these Colorful Egg Sprinkles because I wanted the look of green grass, but any decorative sprinkles will work.
  • I mixed half of the sprinkles with the base color, but it just blended in with the white chocolate.
  • I make my popcorn by placing 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in a paper bag, fold over the top to close, then cook in the microwave for 3 1/2 minutes {or use the Popcorn Button}.
  • Make sure you use the largest bowl you can find to mix the chocolate with the popcorn!!! Those giant Tupperware bowls are perfect.
  • Each bag of Candy Melts is 12 ounces, so you will need 1 full bag and part of a second bag for the base color.

I chose to not name this Springtime Chocolate Covered Popcorn something cute like Bunny Bait, because it is fun and delicious enough to be eaten anytime of year.
