Remember that week it was raining and my mom made some recipes with my sister while I was at school, and it was still sunny?? Today is one of those recipes. My mom and sister made Birthday Cake Popcorn for one of our Friday Movie Nights. The popcorn was soooo delicious!! It was gooey and had sprinkles and was DELECTABLE. That’s a pretty big word. That means it’s really yummy!

We like to have treats like this on our movie nights so you better believe we’ll make this again!!

Here is the simple recipe. πŸ˜€

    1. It is the dry mix, that you add to the melted marshmallows and butter, then you’ll add the cake mix, vanilla, and milk. It is the tastiest popcorn ever!! Hope you like it!

  1. Vanilla extract or vanilla icing? I have an upcoming 4th of July / birthday party coming up & want to make this with red, white, & blue star shaped sprinkes for the kiddos (if it makes it to the table πŸ˜‰

  2. This looks soooo tasty! We are heading out on a family RV trip and I was thinking about bringing this. Is it something you have to eat fresh, or will it harden into an inedible glob if I make and bag it in advance?

    Thanks!

  3. This looks so yummy! Have you made it a day or so early? How early could I make it and store it for later use? Does it get hard when it cools? Thanks so much!

  4. Hey! I have two questions. Do you think I would be able to use a different cake mix (like chocolate for example. Have you tried that?) And how messy is this? I was thinking for a game night but I don’t want people to be sticking to the pieces. Thanks in advance! πŸ™‚

      1. Hi want to make this for my daughter sleepover, but I will like to prep and make it a day in advance and put it in clear favor bags tied up. Would it be fine.

  5. Hi! This looks great. I’ve been considering making it as an end of the year treat for my students. Do you have an estimate of how many “servings” this would yield?

    Thanks!

    1. It just depends on how much you are giving them. You’ll probably want to double/triple the recipe for sure. I wish I knew an exact amount, I’m sorry. They will love it, though πŸ™‚

  6. Does this stay clumped together (more like popcorn balls) or separate more? I’m trying to decide if I should make this for a 8 adult movie party or if it would be too awkward to self serve and share.
    Either way I’ll be making this soon. Looks awesome. ????

  7. I tried out your birthday cake popcorn for my son’s birthday party, and it was a hit! I’m going to post a photo of it on my brand new website (it’s only got a few posts so far). I’ll make sure to credit you with a link so they can check out your awesomeness (they=my future fans).

    I actually used light butter. It was recommended I not do it on the actual Rice Krispy site, but I learned a trick….if you do the melting part super, duper slowly, it will turn out just fine with light butter.

    I’ll be using real butter next time though! I’m all finished with my light and fat free phase!

  8. This looks really fun. How long does the popcorn last. I was thinking of doing this for a graduation party and making it ahead of time. So, was wondering if I could make it a couple of days ahead.

    Thank you,
