This quick and easy popcorn recipe is a fun munchy for parties. Strawberries and cream popcorn is especially fun in spring, but is great year round.

3 small bowls of white chocolate and strawberry coated popcorn

   Strawberries and cream popcorn was shared for the first time way back in the early days of Cooking With Carlee.  When we were deciding what kind of popcorn to make for his hop on popcorn course of his Dr. Seuss birthday party, once I get this in my head I just knew I had to make it again.

   It had been so long since we had it and we are all big fans of anything strawberry and cream.  It worked out great because it makes a big batch.  I sprinkled it with a few sprinkles to make it extra festive for the birthday party.

    This is a perfect snack to make the day ahead of the party and have ready for people to munch on while they wait for the meal.  It would also be fun in little baggies as an edible favor.

Now here is the original post I wrote in February 2015:

   Have I told you lately how ready for spring I am?  This snow is for the birds.

   This girl is over it.  Even Little Dude is over it.  He didn’t even try to play in it this morning.

   He stepped in it, then looked dismayed.  We need green.  We need warm.  We need spring.

   So, we are still trying to make it spring inside.  More strawberries!

It got a resounding two thumbs up from my husband and his friend.  Little Dude and I loved it too.  Little Dude kept trying to steal some from my bowl while keeping his to himself!

For Little Dude’s first birthday party, we did a popcorn theme.  We had a popcorn bar with all sorts of popcorn.  

 I ordered rainbow corn, caramel corn, caramel apple corn and we set up a popcorn cart with toppings.  I made white chocolate popcorn and cookies and cream popcorn.  

That is where I got this idea.  Why not use freeze dried strawberries?! Yum!

All it takes is a few simple ingredients and a few minutes.

Mix the berries and the popcorn, add the almond bark and viola!It almost felt like spring for a minute.  

Then we woke up to -8 real temp and -24 wind chill this morning.  It’s amazing how reality always comes back to slap you in the face!

Hi Carlee, I had no idea there were so many different types of popcorn. My daughter would have a field day. I'm not sure what almond bark is. A type of chocolate?

Almond bark is like a vanilla flavored white chocolate. You could probably spend a year wandering around our grocery stores!
