This Skittles Popcorn is literally so easy to make & fun to eat. This enjoyable fruit flavored popcorn will become a fan favorite. Dunk the rainbow, Taste the rainbow.
My husband loves sitting down in front of our TV and watching some of his favorite teams face off in intense, close games, each looking for one shining moment. I, on the other hand, love making and preparing treats for the whole family to enjoy. My kids always ask for nachos and complex desserts. I prefer simple treats that are easy to prepare and don’t require much clean-up.
A big bowl of popcorn is a perfect treat for those times, allowing me to relax and cheer on my favorite players. While plain old popcorn is nice, adding a spark or a twist to this traditional treat makes the game even more exciting and enjoyable.
So today, I’m sharing one of our new favorite twists to one of our favorite basketball treats.
I coated our popcorn with white chocolate and Skittles, giving a sweet side to this traditionally salty treat. And trust me, the entire family will love it. My kids couldn’t stop eating it, and even my husband snacked on some, which shocked me as he doesn’t like sweets. He said it took him back to his childhood, eating candied popcorn at the carnival. Score!
Since we have a large family, I made a batch for each color – 40 cups of colorful popcorn. It was nice that we were able to pick up an extra-large bag of Skittles at our local Sam’s Club, easy to find in the candy isle – you can’t miss this bag! Are you a fan Skittles fan? Share your favorite way to eat this treat.
So, if you are in need of an easy snack to wow the fans at your house, make this Skittles Popcorn. Tasting the rainbow has never been this good.
- 8 cups popped popcorn
- 1 cup white melting chocolate
- ½ cup Skittles, mixed or one color at a time, this is what I did
Line a baking/cookie sheet with parchment paper, pour the 8 cups of popcorn on top of the parchment paper and set aside.
Using a food process, add in ½ cup Skittles, I did one color at a time.
Chop the Skittles in the processor until Skittles become granulated like sugar. Pour the Skittles “sugar” into a small bowl. Melt white chocolate according to package directions, then drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn. Using two spatulas, stir popcorn 3-5 times to coat. Immediately shake ¼ cup of the Skittles “sugar” over the popcorn. Turn the popcorn once again, then add more Skittles “sugar” to your taste. I added an additional 2 tablespoons. You will have plenty, use as much as you would like.
Let it harden on wax paper, then break up and serve. Like I mentioned above, I made all 5 colors!
Making it fun for all the kids to snack on their favorite “Skittle.”
Store in an airtight container for 2-3 days. After 3 days it starts to get soft and chewy, but still yummy!
