Cake batter popcorn

Cake batter popcorn – the easiest and yummiest treat you will ever make!

This “sprinkled” popcorn is one of my kids absolute favorites. It is SO addicting! And let’s be honest… I love anything cake batter. The best part? It only takes 5 minutes to make! You can’t beat that! This cake batter popcorn is great for when you need a last minute treat for a birthday party, classroom treat or late night snack. It also packages up really well. Just place in a clear bag and tie with twine and a cute little tag.

Anything with sprinkles wins, don’t you think? They just make me happy. Speaking of… I’m celebrating Sally’s Baking Addiction wedding with a little “virtual” bridal shower. A few of my blogging friends shared some sprinkle recipes in Sally’s honor… so make sure to check them out at the bottom of this post. :D

    • Jamielyn replied on August 13th, 2014 at 6:24 pm

      You can use candy melts, white chocolate bark, or white chocolate chips! :)

    Not to sound completely dense.. but Vanilla Candy Coating… is that white chocolate chips? Because the directions go on to say ‘Melt chocolate in the microwave according to package directions. Stir cake mix into chocolate’ but Chocolate is not a listed ingredient? I don’t make fun stuff like this often, so I wanted to make sure I pick up the right thing.
    Thanks!

      Hi Adrianne! You can use vanilla candy coating, white chocolate bark, or white chocolate chips! The result will ultimately be the same! :)

    Popcorn is my all time favorite late night snack. I usually opt for buttered (bad I know!). Can’t wait to try this version. Pinned!
