How To Make Fall Popcorn
Step 1 - Just put popped popcorn on waxed paper and on a cookie sheet or cutting board.
Step 2 - Melt the candy melts. You can choose to put a dash of pumpkin spice in the melts if you like. I chose the orange melts, but you can also do a color combination with brown or yellow as an homage to candy corn.
Step 3 - Spread the popcorn on a cookie sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Drizzle the melted candy over the popcorn mixture. Add the sprinkles to the popcorn and let set.
Step 4 - Place into a large bowl and add candy if desired. Remove any unpopped popcorn kernals. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
If you haven't tried it, it is seriously delicious and addictive. The sweet and salty combination makes it a great treat for hanging out, binge-watching shows and family game night.
