What you’ll need for Firecracker Popcorn

16 Cups popped popcorn
12oz. Bag White Chocolate Chips

Strawberry Flavored Popping Candy- PopRocks or AfterShocks – approx. 1oz. total candies (3 full
packages of pop rocks or 20 of the small AfterShocks packages)

½ Cup Blue Candy Melts
Patriotic sprinkles




Prepare your work surface by spreading out a large area of wax paper, you’ll be spreading your popcorn
out on it.
Reserve ½ cup of white chocolate chips and place the rest in the bowl of a double boiler.
Melt over medium/low heat until smooth.
Place your popcorn in a large bowl and pour your melted white chocolate over the popcorn. Stir until all
the popcorn is evenly coated.
Spread the popcorn out evenly on your wax paper.

Now for the bang

While the white chocolate is still sticky sprinkle on about ½ of your popping candy and some of your red and white sprinkles.

Now melt the reserved white chocolate chips until nice and smooth.
Using a pastry bag, a plastic baggie with the corner cut off, or a chocolate drizzling tool, or spoon, drizzle the melted white chocolate evenly across your popcorn. Sprinkle on a little bit more of your
sprinkles and popping candy.

Next, melt your blue candy melts in your double boiler and drizzle it across the popcorn. Sprinkle on your
remaining popping candy and a little bit more sprinkles.

Let all of your candy cool before serving.

Serve immediately or keep in an air tight container.

This is such a fun and tasty treat your whole family won’t be able to get enough of.

    I love popcorn ? especially with real butter and salt. Yummy!! I have always loved Crackerjack too. This sounds like one that I would love to sink my teeth into (if I had some).
    I am a big fan of white chocolate. Another patriotic winner that I pinned. Thank you for sharing!!
