It couldn’t be easier to make. Just pop a bag of microwave popcorn. Toss it with melted white chocolate. It’s best to do this with your hands. Have your kids do it if you don’t feel like getting messy! They’ll love it.

Then sprinkle 4th of July sprinkles and red Pop Rocks all over the coated popcorn before the white chocolate sets. You can use blue Pop Rocks too, but I find they look a little more green than blue. Look for Patriotic sprinkles at Michael’s Craft Store, Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts, or order from Star Sprinkles Amazon.
