We all know that appearances are everything. ESPECIALLY when it comes to dessert. This popcorn is no exception. It went from regular popcorn to ombre popcorn in a matter of seconds. And now it’s pretty enough to eat!
The key ingredient?
Pixie Stix! Raise your hand if you remember those!
- 1/2 c popcorn kernels
- 1 c white chocolate (melted)
- 10-15 pixie stix in red/orange and blue/purple
- wax paper
And it goes like this:
Pop the popcorn. Place in a large bowl and set aside. In a small microwaveable bowl, melt the white chocolate. Once melted, gently stir the white chocolate over the popcorn. Quickly spread the popcorn out on a sheet of wax paper. Before the chocolate can set, sprinkle the pixie stix over the popcorn with one color on the top half and the second color on the bottom half. Allow a few minutes to set!
And for extra added cuteness, toss the popcorn in some Oh Joy! For Target goblets and then you’ll really wow… yourself. (I say “yourself” because you’re the only one who is going to eat this popcorn.
There will be none left for the others.
I mean, popcorn. That’s all I can say. It’s just the best snacky snack.
