  • 4 cups popcorn plain, unsalted
  • 4 ounces butter or margarine
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup Skittles single flavors
  • Food coloring For more color if desired

  • Pop your corn according to package instructions. Place in a bowl and set aside.
  • Rip a sheet of waxed paper (about 8" – 10' long) and place on your counter.
  • Melt butter and brown sugar on the stove on medium heat. Stir frequently to avoid scorching.
  • Pour in the Skittles candies. Stir until melted (you might need to mash them down to help them dissolve). Add food coloring if you desire more color.
  • Once done melting pour the hot candy mixture over the top of the popcorn.
  • Use a spatula and fold in the mixture throughout the popcorn until will covered.
  • Dump the popcorn onto the waxed paper and spread thinly to allow to cool.
  • If you wish to make popcorn balls, allow mixture to cool for 3 – 4 minutes (or until you can touch it). Then, spray cooking spray or butter your hands and form the popcorn into balls shapes. Set aside.
  • Allow all to fully set (around 15 – 20 minutes)
  • Store in airtight containers for about a week
