Mardi Gras Popcorn

Mardi Gras Popcorn

We love the idea of taking a simple snack such of popcorn and hacking some Mardi Gras spirit right into it! If you love a sweet and salty snack that will be sure to be a hit; try out this amazing Mardi Gras Popcorn! Its the perfect combination of flavor and festive and its super easy to whip up quickly!

This popcorn is great for a Mardi Gras Movie Night snack or a perfect appetizer at a Masquerade themed party! I am a sucker for gourmet popcorn and anytime we indulge in hacked popcorn treat – we always do with with Orville Redenbacher’s Movie Theatre Butter Popcorn. If your looking to indulge I recommend this brand! It mixes very well with any kind of chocolate or crunchy add ins!

This recipe uses a combination of popcorn and chocolate melts. You can certainly buy your chocolate at the grocery store but I have found that for popcorn hacks such as the Mardi Gras Popcorn; the artificial candy melts from Hobby Lobby or Michaels tend to work much better! My favorite brand (which is tried and tested) is Wilton Candy melts – this brand is the best quality and best taste! If you go to hobby lobby be sure to download the app for a 40% in store coupon every day!  With the coupon you can load up on candy melts all you want!
