At a neighborhood holiday party a year or so ago, I enjoyed my fair share of Buffalo Chicken Dip. Quite addicting, for sure. I’d managed to banish it from my mind for over a year now, but decided to make some (ever so slightly lightened up) with our homemade Hot Sauce Recipe to try out before Super Bowl night. Ya know, to test and everything.
Last week after making Peanut Butter Butterfinger Ice Cream, I made a few fun ice cream sandwiches for my kids. They’re teenagers, so not technically kids, I suppose, but they sure did grab them up like a bunch of happy-go-lucky kids. For the slightest moment, the angst filled teenager disappeared as they delighted in the ice cream sandwiches. And who wouldn’t? Kids of all ages will go for these.

While I was making the Party Popcorn last week, I found some pink and purple candy melts, along with more sprinkles that I needed to use up, in the back of my baking drawer, and decided I would make some Valentines Popcorn to celebrate upcoming Valentine’s day. And what Valentine wouldn’t like some pink or purple, Barney-inspired popcorn? Exactly. Everyone needs a little pink and purple popcorn in their life once in a while. It’s true.
Okay, I’m going to cut right to the chase, this candy popcorn, what I’m calling Party Popcorn for a lack of a better term, is the quickest tastiest thing I’ve made in a while. And there are reasons for that. With just a few ingredients (as few as three, depending on what route you take), and not really any cooking, just some melting, this is a fast favorite for me now. Perfect for a party of any kind. And to think of all of my children’s birthday parties in years gone by that I could’ve used this one for.
