Gourmet Popcorn with Candy
You can toss in your favorite Easter candy, like these pastel M&Ms, or use colored sprinkles. Any candy is perfect in this flavored popcorn dessert. The candy works so well with the salty and sweet flavors…you will find it can be addictive. I chose to add food coloring to the white chocolate to make my popcorn pink. You can use any color you want, or leave the white chocolate white.
You can even serve it up in fancy glasses for an easy Easter party snack. This is gourmet popcorn at its finest :-).

How to dye shredded coconut:
You can use a popcorn maker, microwave popcorn, or your favorite bagged popcorn to make this delicious dessert. For a fun Easter twist, color your shredded coconut. I used Easter basket green food coloring. I used 10 drops mixed with 2/3 cups of coconut flakes. Mix well and allow to dry for 10 minutes.
Add your favorite candy to the popcorn.
What is the best melting chocolate brand?
I used Ghiradelli white melting chocolate. I consider this the best brand of melting chocolate. It is gluten freem and melts so smoothly. Some brands taste a little plastic-like so I stick with Ghiradelli.
What is the best kind of food coloring to use in this recipe?
Swirl in 6 drops of red food coloring to make it pink. You can also use this dye-free natural food coloring.
Drizzle the white chocolate onto the popcorn mixture and mix well. Allow drying for 10 minutes. Don’t you just love chocolate covered popcorn?
