In case you haven’t caught on yet, mason jars are currently all the rage. One quick browse on Pinterest and your likely to see at least one post with a mason jar or other glass jar of sorts. They offer endless possibilities for canning, crafting, gifting, munching and sipping. Fun fact: the mason jar was actually invented and patented in 1858, but has recently taken on anew intrigue for its variety of uses.
After obtaining a few mason jars to play with from Sunburst and with Easter being around the corner, I was on the hunt for an edible creation to fill my jars. With several ideas hopping, I finally settled on Funfetti Easter Popcorn. This simple, sweet little treat presents perfectly in the jars and serves as a great gift for teachers, friends and neighbors. Of course, it would also be an excellent addition to an Easter basket. Amidst all the little bunnies around my house, the leftover popcorn didn’t last long! Happy Easter.
Funfetti Easter Popcorn
6 cups lightly salted white popcorn
1 12 oz. bag white chocolate morsels
2-3 packages of various colored peeps (5 per pack)
2-3 tablespoons of butter
6 16 oz. wide mouth mason jars
Multicolored funfetti sprinkles as desired
Spread popcorn evenly on a few cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Melt white chocolate morsels in a medium sauce pan over medium/low heat. Once melted drizzle over popcorn, then toss gently a few times with a rubber spatula.
Before it begins to harden, sprinkle with multicolored funfetti. Clean sauce pan and heat 1 tablespoon of butter on medium/low, add one package of peeps stirring until melted. Drizzle mixture over popcorn and sprinkle again with multicolored funfetti.
Repeat last step with various colored peeps for a colorful funfetti Easter popcorn.
You’ll have about 6 filled jars worth sharing!
