4th of July Favors: Patriotic Popcorn

4th of July Favor: Patriotic Popcorn | Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com #ediblegift #independenceday #recipe
Aside from chips and salsa and brie and crackers, popcorn is my favorite snack of all time. I’ll take it air popped or microwave popped – I’m not picky. Since receiving an air popper this past December for my birthday, I’ve been excited to make our own popcorn, kettle corn… you name it.

Dessert popcorns have become really popular, and they are all over Pinterest, but I had yet to try it. So, I thought for 4th of July, why not make a really simple dessert-style Patriotic Popcorn. I envision the evening sky getting dark, and the adults preparing fireworks while the little kids sit on blankets sprawled out over the grass, reaching into their little goodie bags of sweet white chocolate popcorn and M&M’s in anticipation for the coming light show.

I know my kids like to have snacks during the firework shows, and I just think these really easy popcorn bags are so perfect. They can wander around and eat them, and still socialize with all the friends and family that have come to celebrate our country’s independence. A dessert/snack on the go like this is the perfect non-fuss treat to guarantee happy faces all around.
