  • 10 cups popcorn (plain) popped
  • 3 tbsp butter salted
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 3 tbsps Patriotic Sprinkles
  • ¼ cup Wilton candy melts Red
  • ¼ cup Wilton candy melts Bright White
  • ¼ cup Wilton candy melts Royal Blue
  • salt


  • Line a cookie sheet with a Silpat Mat, foil, or parchment paper.
  • Prepare the popcorn, then add it to a large bowl and salt liberally.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter, then add in the mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are completely melted and creamy.
  • Slowly pour about ¾ of the melted marshmallows over the popcorn, gently folding the popcorn with a spatula or spoon until most of the popcorn are covered. Hold on to the remaining marshmallow until the next step!
  • Spread the coated popcorn onto the prepared baking sheet in an even layer. Drizzle the remaining marshmallow over the popcorn mixture, and immediately add about ½ of the patriotic sprinkles.
  • Melt the red candy melts using either a candy melting pot, double boiler, or in the microwave. Using a spoon, drizzle on top of the popcorn. Immediately sprinkle a little bit of the remaining patriotic sprinkles on top of the melted blue chocolate.
  • Repeat with the Royal Blue Candy Melts and the Bright White candy melts, making sure to add a small amount of sprinkles after each color chocolate.
  • Allow the candy popcorn to set before breaking it up in pieces. Serve and enjoy!
