White chocolate covered popcorn with pretzels, chocolate egg candies, and cute sprinkles! Easter Popcorn or Bunny Bait is a must make treat!
I love holiday popcorn mixes like this all year long but I especially love them during the Easter season because we get to call them Bunny Bait! And how cute is that name?!
And if I was the Easter bunny, you cold definitely catch me by making a big bowl of white chocolate popcorn with candy and pretzels and sprinkles!
Why You’ll Love This Recipe
- Number one: no bake! No baking means that it’s great for kiddos that like to help. It also means it’s quick and easy.
- It’s ready in about 15 minutes. You can make it even faster if you buy already popped popcorn instead of making your own!
- It’s the perfect sweet and salty combination! Sweet from the white chocolate and egg candies and salty from the popcorn and pretzels.
- Popcorn kernels – if you are using already popped popcorn, one bag of popcorn should be fine
- White melting chocolate – I recommend candy melts or white almond bark
- Coconut oil – you can use butter if you prefer but coconut oil makes the white chocolate super smooth and shiny
- Mini eggs – I used Cadbury Mini Eggs for this recipe but you can use any Easter egg chocolate with a candy coating
- Pretzel sticks
- Sprinkles – switch up the sprinkles for the holidays!
How To Make White Chocolate Popcorn
- Make popcorn. Pop kernels into a large bowl.
- Melt chocolate. Melt chocolate and coconut oil in microwave on 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted.
- Color chocolate. Add 3-4 drops of red food coloring if desired.
- Assemble. Pour half of the popcorn into serving bowl. Sprinkle with half the pretzels, half eggs, sprinkles, and finish by drizzling with half of the melted chocolate. Add remainder of popcorn and repeat.
- Let set completely. Spoon onto parchment or wax paper and let set completely before serving.
How Long Is It Good For?
This white chocolate covered popcorn is best the day it’s made or the next day. After that the popcorn will start to get stale and/or soggy.
Make sure to store it in an airtight container to keep it as fresh as possible.
- Use a bag of already popped popcorn instead of making your own.
- Switch up the chocolates! Try a milk chocolate drizzle and white chocolate candies.
- Add nuts or dried fruit.
- Cereals like Chex or Crispix add a great crunch without adding more sweet or salty.
