Birthday Cake Popcorn

Can you believe that The Endless Meal turned a year old on September 14th? Or it would have if it were a real thing.

Birthday Cake Popcorn

My first idea to celebrate this one year milestone was to recreate the first recipe I posted. Or more specifically, re-take the photo. It's cute, in an omg-I-can't-believe-I-thought-that-was-good-enough-to-post-online kind of way. I'm a little embarrassed to share it with you (I'm cringing a little inside) but if you're interested in seeing the first post ever on The Endless Meal, check out the Campfire Roasted Stuffed Red Peppers.

I don't have much of a sweet tooth but my fingers (and camera) were covered in sweet, sticky, birthday cake deliciousness throughout the whole photoshoot. If you are a fan of birthday cake you will love this.

Description

Birthday Cake Popcorn is a festive alternative (or addition) to birthday cake. It is a simple and pretty recipe for your next birthday celebration.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 6 cups popped popcorn
  • 1/2 bag of marshmallows
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 24 tablespoons milk (I used almond milk but regular milk would work too)
  • 3/4 cup vanilla cake mix
  • Optional: sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Place popped popcorn in a large bowl and remove any un-popped kernels.
  2. Place marshmallows in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir frequently until marshmallows have melted. Add cake mix and stir till well combined. Stir in vanilla then stir in milk 1 tablespoon at a time until it is a pouring (but not runny) consistency.
  3. Pour melted marshmallows over popcorn and stir to combine.
  4. Top with sprinkles.

Notes

To make into popcorn balls: wet hands lightly and scoop up a small amount of popcorn. Gently form into the shape of a ball. Re-wet hands between each popcorn ball to prevent the popcorn from sticking to your hands.
