Hello Friends! Happy first week of fall! I can honestly feel some of the fall breezes coming through. If you remember, I recently started decorating for fall and began surrounding my house with pumpkins and fall signage.

Taking it a step further, I made this fall-themed popcorn dessert to celebrate the arrival. Candy popcorn is the perfect treat to enjoy while enjoying the season.

It is truly an easy recipe. All you need are popcorn, candy melts and some fall-themed sprinkles.

Just put popped corn on waxed paper and on a cookie sheet or cutting board.

Then 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.

Add the sprinkles to the popcorn and let set.
