Popcorn – You can use homemade popcorn or pre-packaged popcorn, but make sure you are using plain or lightly salted one. Use a good quality and fresh popcorn for the best results.
White Chocolate – I have used chopped white chocolate bar in this recipe. If you don’t have white chocolate bar, you can use white chocolate chips or candy melts instead.
If you are using white chocolate chips or candy melts, I would recommend to add ½ tablespoon of coconut oil to the chocolate. I will make easier to melt.
Mini Eggs – These will add a festive touch and crunchy texture to the popcorn. You can substitute them with any other easter-themed candies like pastel colored M&Ms.
Sprinkles – Use any type of easter-themed or pastel colored sprinkles to add a festive touch to the popcorn.
It tastes the best the day you make it. However, It can be stored in a tightly sealed airtight container for few days.
If you want to store it for longer period of time, place them in a freezer safe zip lock bag and seal properly. It can be stored in the freezer for a month or two.
It can be added to the easter gift basket along with other goodies.
It can also be used as a fun topping for ice cream.
Can be served as a snack or dessert.
You can also use Easter-themed edible glitter to add a festive touch to the popcorn.
Add pastel colors to the melted chocolate and drizzle it over the popcorn for a fun and colorful popcorn.
You can also add mini pretzel, pastel colored jelly beans, M&Ms, mini marshmallows, easter candies and bunny shaped graham crackers.
Can I use milk or dark chocolate instead of white chocolate?
Yes! You can use any of your favorite chocolate. However, it will change the flavor and color of your easter popcorn.
Tips & Notes:
Use fresh and good quality popcorn for the best taste and texture.
Melt the chocolate carefully to avoid burning it. Stir the chocolate frequently until it is smooth.
Add your favorite decorations while the chocolate is still wet so that they stick.
