Birthday Cake Popcorn is a festive alternative (or addition) to birthday cake. It is a simple and pretty recipe for your next birthday celebration.
- 6 cups popped popcorn
- 1/2 bag of marshmallows
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2–4 tablespoons milk (I used almond milk but regular milk would work too)
- 3/4 cup vanilla cake mix
- Optional: sprinkles
- Place popped popcorn in a large bowl and remove any un-popped kernels.
- 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.
- Pour melted marshmallows over popcorn and stir to combine.
- Top with sprinkles.
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.
