    One of my favorite things about this cake batter popcorn is that it only takes 4 ingredients to make. All components are simple and are usually ingredients I tend to always have in the pantry. Check them out below:

    • Sprinkles: Who doesn’t love sprinkles?! They add such a fun touch and nice crunch.
