From Sweet Tooth, it's incredibly easy to make this treat that's popping with flavor. With just some microwave popcorn, a box of cake mix, and a few other ingredients, you can whip up a batch in no time. And it's just so pretty. It's perfect for gifts or for things like school bake sales. Just put into individual plastic bags, tie with a bright ribbon, and watch people scoop it up. The only problem with this recipe -- its addiction potential is dangerously high.


Funfetti Cake Batter Popcorn

2 bags microwavable kettle corn or white popcorn
1-1/2 cups white chocolate chips or vanilla candy melts
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1-1/2 cup white or yellow cake mix
1/3 cup rainbow sprinkles

Pop the popcorn in the microwave, following packaging instructions. Transfer popcorn to a large bowl, being careful to pick out all of the unpopped kernels.

Melt the white chocolate chips or candy melts in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each 30 seconds until it is fully melted.

Stir in the vegetable oil to the melted chocolate until smooth. Then add the cake mix to the chocolate -- the mixture will be thick, but mix until well-incorporated.

Drizzle the chocolate/cake batter mixture over the popcorn and add half of the sprinkles. Use your (clean) fingers to toss everything together until evenly coated.

Spread the popcorn onto wax paper-lined cookie sheets to allow the chocolate to harden and sprinkle the remaining sprinkles on top.

Let popcorn harden for about 20 minutes on the counter, or 5 minutes in the fridge, and enjoy!
