Cake Batter Confetti Popcorn Recipe








Yeah. How about all that in your eyeballs this Thursday morning? 

This weekend, CB is having a friendsgiving at his house. It is of course a potluck and I was assigned rolls and non-alcoholic drinks... or what I like to call at an event like this, mixers. I wanted to bring something else, because I didn't exactly feel like a couple cans of pillsbury crescent rolls and some diet coke was my fair share. 

So I whipped up this mouth watering beauty above! I mayyyyyy have done a quick taste test and holy moly is it good. While I'm not the biggest chocolate lover (gasp I know) I'm a sucker for anything with a vanilla or cake batter taste to it. Add a crunch and some salty goodness and I'll be putty in your hands! 

Plus, it took about 10 minutes to make and just a handful of ingredients. If I say it is easy, it is easy. 

Cake Batter Confetti Popcorn Recipe
Recipe from Erica's Sweet Tooth

Ingredients
::: 2 Bags of 94% Fat Free Popcorn 
(not quite as buttery as regular, and not as sweet as kettle corn would be) 
::: 1-1/2 Cups of White Chocolate Chips 
::: 1/4 cup of Vegetable Oil
::: 1-1/2 cups white cake mix
::: 1/3 cup rainbow sprinkles

Instructions
::: Pop both bags of popcorn. Open the bags just enough for the unpopped kernels to fall through the opening, and shake out all unpopped kernels. 
::: In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments. Stirring in between until chips are fully melted. I believe I went a total of 3 minutes after all was said and done. 
::: Stir in your vegetable oil. Once those two ingredients are smooth, add your cake mix. Stir until all three are fully combined and mixture is thick but smooth. 
::: Slowly pour the batter over your popcorn, along with half of your rainbow sprinkles. Gently toss the popcorn with your hands as you go. 
::: Spread your popcorn out on a sheet of wax paper. Toss the remainder (or even more because YOLO) of your sprinkles all over the popcorn. 
::: Put popcorn in the fridge for about 5 minutes to harden. 

Then eat that beautiful, confetti goodness. May I be so bold as to recommend eating this for dessert while you're watching the Cowboys play the *cough* the eagles *cough*. Sorry, I didn't want that team's name on my blog without hacking sounds added. 

Oh, and it tastes even better if you wear a shirt like this while you're eating it...








Really I just wanted to show off my new gem of a shirt I found the other day.
Hallelujah!
