Halloween Party Popcorn

Halloween is such a fun time of year! This Halloween popcorn makes a fun treat for a party, movie night, or school festival. It’s an easy Halloween treat to make that everyone can enjoy.

This fun orange and black treat is a salty-sweet concoction loaded with sprinkles and good to the last bite. I hope you enjoy making and eating it.

This recipe is super simple to make, even a mummy can do it. You can grab the supplies off Amazon or your local craft store like Michaels. Oddly enough that’s the easiest place to get the candy melts near me!

Halloween Popcorn ingredients

If you want this to be salty-sweet than use popcorn with salt. If you want it to be pure sugary goodness get popcorn without salt. You could even use kettle corn but know this will then be sugar overload!

Making Halloween Party Popcorn

1 – Make your popcorn

2 – Place about half in your dish

3 – Melt your black candy melts in the microwave according to the package instructions. (I actually only needed about half of the bag).

Once melted drizzle it over the popcorn using a fork or whisk. If the candy melts aren’t getting thin enough you can add a bit of oil and give it a good stir which will help to thin it.

4 – Melt your orange candy melts and drizzle them over top of the black.

5 – Top it with some fun Halloween sprinkles.

6 – Repeat these steps to create a 2nd layer. If you want your popcorn thoroughly coated I recommend doing 3 thin layers of popcorn instead of 2.

7 – Serve your popcorn in a large bowl or some cute individual popcorn boxes.
