  • rimmed baking sheet


  • standard bag of microwave popcorn, or equivalent
  • ½ cup butter, melted or 1 stick
  • ½ cup white cake mix
  • 1 ½ cup white chocolate, melted
  • 2 tablespoons sprinkles or sparkles of your choice or more if you want
  • ½ cup white chocolate pretzels homemade or store bought
  • ¼ cup M&M’s


  • If you're like me and hate biting down on the unpopped popcorn, I recommend that you dump your popped popcorn onto a rimmed baking sheet. This way you can remove the excess kernels and avoid anyone breaking a tooth. Your other option is a trick I learned years ago I was taught this trick to dump all of your popped popcorn onto a cooling rack or grate and watch the kernels fall right through all of the holes! So much simpler than picking through your popcorn one piece a a time! 
  • Toss popcorn with melted butter, then sprinkle cake mix all over your popcorn and toss until coated.

  • Drizzle the white chocolate, as evenly as possible, all over the popcorn.
  • Toss again until the popcorn is completely covered with the chocolate.

  • Add sprinkles, pretzels, and M&Ms
  • Allow to dry or set on baking sheet on your counter for about 2 hours (although you can start munching after 15 minutes). This popcorn must be dry or set before you place it in an airtight container. Serve as desired and enjoy!
