Do you enjoy shopping at Target? Is there any better place to be shopping? Given all the stores in my area, Target is almost always the first place to start for some shopping magic.
I've said it before, and I still stand by it. I think there is magic time dust in the air there because I feel like time stands still once I enter the front door.
While I was wandering the store this time, I found the seasonal aisle and filled my cart with a few bags of fun Easter candy. Hopefully, I can keep most of it hidden until it is time to fill Easter baskets with the candy and a cute homemade peanut butter Easter bunny.
But then I raided the pantry and found a few bags of microwave popcorn, a bag of white chocolate, and lots and lots of sprinkles.

How to make White Chocolate Covered Popcorn
With just a few easy steps, you can be munching on a big bowl of this bright and colorful Easter popcorn.
- Stir together the popcorn and marshmallows in a large bowl.
- Melt the white chocolate according to the package directions. Pour it over the popcorn and stir until everything is coated.
- Quickly pour the mixture onto a wax paper lined tray. Add sprinkles and candies and toss again.
- Place the pan in the refrigerator to help the Easter popcorn mix hardens faster. Break it apart if needed and store in a tightly sealed container or bag.
BRUCREW TIP: Make sure you remove any un-popped kernels before adding the melted chocolate, so you do not break a tooth when snacking on this sweet and salty popcorn.
What kind of chocolate works best for chocolate covered popcorn?
I prefer to use Ghirardelli melts when making chocolate covered snack mixes. They taste amazing, and they also melt easily in the microwave.
You can also use almond bark or white chocolate chips. BRUCREW TIP: Add a little bit of shortening or coconut oil to help it melt easier.
How long does this easy white chocolate popcorn last?
This white chocolate covered popcorn is best the day you make it. It will still taste amazing a few days later, but it will start to soften over time. Keep it in a very tightly sealed bag or container.
Can you freeze chocolate covered popcorn?
You sure can. This easy snack mix is freezer friendly. Place it in a freezer safe bag and seal completely. It will keep in the freezer for 1-2 months.
