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!
