Adding the candy melts will need some parental supervision but that doesn’t mean that the kids can’t help. Just make sure that you talk to them about the importance of heating and following directions and then they can help out with drizzling it across the popcorn.

How to store popcorn

To keep the popcorn as fresh as possible for as long as possible, store the popcorn in an airtight container with a lid. You don’t have to keep this in the fridge so on the counter or at room temperature is fine.

Although, I highly doubt that you’ll have any leftovers – because you’re going to want to eat it all!

Have fun making this treat – it’s one of the best!
