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!

Crystal

This is such a fun recipe and perfect for family movie nights. Thanks for the recipe πŸ™‚

Brandy

So is that dry white cake mix? Or Cake mix with milk or water added to it?

    Lil' Luna

    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!

Cynthia

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˜‰

    Lil' Luna

    Vanilla extract:) Haha..yes, good luck not eating it first!! It’s delish! Thanks for stopping by!!

Nicole

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!

    Lil' Luna

    This would be perfect! It shouldn’t turn into a glob πŸ™‚ Let me know what you think! Have fun!

Jwells

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!

    Lil' Luna

    I’ve made it the morning of, but not any earlier. It doesn’t get hard. I’m sure a day a head will be ok πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy!! Thank you!

Briana

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™‚

    Lil' Luna

    It is messy and sticky and I haven’t tried chocolate, but it sure is a hit. It might have to be the treat for after the games πŸ™‚

      Ernelle

      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.

        Lil' Luna

        How fun!! Yes, it should be ok πŸ™‚ I hope they like it!

Marshall

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!

    Lil' Luna

    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™‚

Kristen

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. πŸ˜‹

    Lil' Luna

    It’s sticky, so it does stay together! Maybe have it in individual cups/bags? It will be a hit!

Michelle

Do you think this can be shipped via priority mail for a gift? My niece is going to college in Colorado and would love this.

    Lil' Luna

    I’m honestly not sure?? Haven’t done that. One way to find out? πŸ™‚

Christina

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!

JC

I am curious what kind of popcorn you use for this recipe. More butter or less butter?

    Kristyn Merkley

    I think I used a lightly salted popcorn πŸ™‚ You could use buttered too, maybe just not the really buttered one. Hope that helps πŸ™‚

Denise

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,

    Kristyn Merkley

    I wouldn’t do it more than a couple days ahead. I haven’t made them even that far in advance, but it should still be fine. πŸ™‚
