Candied popcorn is a colorful birthday party treat that kids love. For my daughter’s girlfriend’s Bluey’s birthday party, I made her Bluey and Bingo popcorn her recipe in orange and blue, served with colorful sprinkles and a little white dog bone. If you’re planning a Bluey’s birthday party, these easy-to-make birthday snacks are a must. It’s also a fun way to level up your family movie night if you don’t have a party planned.
Bluey And Bingo Popcorn Recipe
Candied popcorn is the ultimate sweet and salty snack because you can get creative and add whatever you want to customize it. I make candied popcorn for every birthday party. We change colors and candies to match the theme of the party, but there is no leftover food. In fact, some of my eldest daughter’s friends started asking for it before I even offered a service. I like it.
Any plain popcorn will do, but I prefer raw popcorn. Make popcorn according to package directions.I always use plain, unbuttered air popcorn for this. Divide the popcorn into 3 medium bowls.
Melt about 10 candy melt wafers according to package directions in 3 small glass bowls.
Keeping the colors separated, use a spoon or spatula to transfer the melted candy to the popcorn. Melt more candy if necessary to coat the popcorn well.
Once the popcorn is completely coated with candy, combine the 3 colors of popcorn into one large bowl. Sprinkle/sprinkle dog bones or other candies on top.
Note – I usually add colorful Sixlets to my candied popcorn, but I didn’t at this party.
