Popcorn Recipe

A night in with the fam? Check. A new movie from theaters, streaming only on Peacock ? Oh, yeah. Magical popcorn? Read on for this special recipe and elevate your movie night snackdom! Make sure to prepare it a couple hours ahead, unless you love melted candy everywhere. (If that’s your thing, totally cool too.)

Magic Movie Night Popcorn


12 cups popped popcorn (prepared your favorite way)
1.5 cup white chocolate (chips, candy melts, or bark)
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp magic sprinkles

Optional add-ins

Food coloring
Candy pieces


1.   Pop your corn!
2.   Add white chocolate and the butter to a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then repeat until melted, about 90 seconds. If using food coloring, add to the chocolate once completely melted.
3.   Add the prepared popcorn to large bowl (make sure to remove unpopped kernels — nobody likes those). Pour the melted chocolate on top and stir gently until the popcorn is coated.
4.   Gently stir in the sprinkles and any additional add-ins.
5.   Lay out a sheet of aluminum foil or parchment paper and spread the mixture in a thin layer on the foil. Let dry for 1-2 hours.
6.  Enjoy with your favorite movie on Peacock!

Additional Info

  • Two bags of microwaved popcorn should fill the recipe.
  • If you pop your own popcorn, 1/2 cup of kernels should be plenty. We recommend butter and salt for additional flavor before adding the chocolate. Salty and sweet. Mmmm.
  • Be careful not to burn the chocolate. If the consistency is too thick, add milk or cream to thin it out.
