Birthday Party Popcorn

In terms of food I only made two things for Addilyn's birthday party.  Cupcakes and popcorn.  I love this popcorn because you can make it ahead of time and it's easy, quick and cheap.  Plus it makes a lot.  I doubled this recipe and I think it was just enough for the 40 people we had.  (I of course ate my share before the party, plus a little after.) 


2 bags of popcorn 
1 package almond bark (I actually used all but two squares, which was plenty) 
1/2 cup cake mix (I used yellow, but funfetti would work too)
sprinkles

Pop your popcorn.  Make sure you get all the unpopped kernels out.  (My dad chipped a tooth on a kernel one time when I made it and probably won't eat it ever again.  Oops.)  Melt your almond bark in the microvewave, stirring after a minute or so.  I add a little olive oil to make it easier to stir.  Add the cake mix once melted and mix.  Pour over the popcorn and stir.  Spread popcorn out on wax paper and cover with sprinkles.  I wish I would've added more sprinkles to mine because a lot of them end up falling off when I broke it up and put it in a bowl after an hour or so once it was the chocolate was hardened.  

This is super similar to this Fall Popcorn Mix and it wouldn't take any kind of baker's skills to make up your own.  Candy, chocolate, lots of variations.
