Red Velvet Popcorn

This Red Velvet Popcorn is such a fun and easy treat!



Really simple process of making Red Velvet Popcorn. Bake Red Velvet Cake


When the cake is cooled break up enough to make about 3 cups of cake crumbs.  You don’t have to be exact here, 3 cups is just a jumping off point.


Now make your popcorn and melt your white chocolate.  Pour the white chocolate over the popcorn in a large bowl and stir to coat evenly.


Transfer your wet popcorn to a wax paper lined counter and spread it out evenly.

Now sprinkle your cake crumbs all over.


Then let it set up, that’s it!!


Ingredients

  • ½ cup unpopped kernels approx 16 cups popped popcorn
  • 3 cups red velvet cake crumbs (about ¼ of a 9x13 cake)
  • 20 oz white chocolate or white melting candy, such as almond bark or disks)

Instructions

  1. Pop the popcorn using an air popper into a large bowl.
  2. Melt your white chocolate according to package directions. I use a double boiler for white chocolate.
  3. Pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn and stir to coat completely.
  4. Pour the popcorn onto a waxed paper lined counter and sprinkle with your red velvet crumbs.
  5. Let it dry completely before eating.
  6. Notes
  7. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

If you don't have an air popper you can use 2 bags of microwave popcorn, just make sure you get the lightly salted/buttered or a "natural".

Also, this recipe calls for approx 3 cups red velvet cake crumbs. This doesn't have to be exact. Use more or less depending on the results you desire.
If you use a boxed mix red velvet cake you will be using about ¼ of the cake. I baked mine in a 9x13 pan.
