Unicorn Popcorn Recipe
We love to make and enjoy popcorn at our house. It’s something that we’ve done since the kids were little.
Some days, we’ve probably even considered our popcorn to be the main meal a time or two but those times are far and few in-between. The beautiful thing about popcorn is that it takes on flavors and tastes so easily. What was once salt can easily become sweet. And don’t even tempt me with making it spicy!
Change up the recipe and add different types of sprinkles or try different colors to really have fun with. This is a wonderful treat for birthdays and parties. We’ve used this recipe as a fun substitute for cake and cupcakes and the kids have really loved it.
Plus, once you throw the word “unicorn” into the mix, you know it’s going to be an instant hit!

- 6 cups air popped popcorn
- Pink food spray*
- 1/2 cup pink candy melts (we used cotton candy flavored)
- 1/2 cup blue candy melts
- 1-2 tsp coconut oil or shortening
- Pink and blue sprinkles
Pop the popcorn with an air popper. (Or use plain bagged popcorn for ease – no butter popcorn.)
Lay the popcorn on two cookie sheets and spray lightly with the pink food spray. Turn over and coat the other side.
Let dry as you prep the candy melts.
Place the candy melts each in a small microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 25 seconds, stir, and reheat as needed. Add in 1/2 teaspoon or more of coconut oil to make the candy melts more loose and easily drizzled.
Drizzle half of the candy melts over the popcorn, add sprinkles, let dry.
Reheat the candy melts and toss the popcorn to coat the other side with the second drizzle.
Let the popcorn dry completely before serving or packaging.
* if this isn’t available near you, you can add a couple drops of red food coloring to 3 tablespoons of melted coconut oil and toss the popcorn in a bag with the dye to get the same pink effect.
