Easy Easter Popcorn

This is an easy and fun project to make! Kids can help! First pop two bags of microwave popcorn and remove all of the unpopped kernels. 

You will need:

Microwave popcorn
Yellow chocolate melts
Pastel sprinkles
Cellophane bags
Pastel ribbon

I bought everything except the popcorn at Michael's. A Hobby Lobby is going to open near my house in May and I am super excited! Sorry! I just had to share!

Put the popcorn into a large bowl or dish. Now melt some chocolate. You can melt white chocolate  and tint it yellow with food coloring - or use the yellow chocolate melts from Michael's. Carefully pour your yellow chocolate onto the popcorn and start sprinkling with some pastel sprinkles. Using a spoon start mixing the popcorn so that each piece is covered with chocolate and sprinkles. Let this mixture cool completely before you package them into little bags.

Once they are packaged into little bags and tied with a pastel ribbon - you can put them in an Easter basket.  Am I right? So easy!
