Recipe: Mermaid Munch

We made this fun snack for our Under The Sea party for little Miss Olivia and her friends. It’s tasty, easy to make, and the kids can help out!

Cook time: 1 hour

Yield: 20 1 cup servings

Here’s what you’ll need:


Two 7 oz. bags store bought popcorn (we used kettle corn for extra sweetness)

1 bag of Wilton Candy Melts, Pink

1 bag of Wilton Candy Melts, Purple

1 Cup Pepperidge Farm Princess Pink Goldfish Crackers

2 tablespoons green nonpareil sprinkles

24 Mini Lilac Popcorn Boxes   (Or, choose your favorite color, they come in a rainbow of choices!)



Arrange half the popcorn on a large cookie sheet with sides that are at least 1” high. Set aside.

In a microwave safe dish, add 1 cup of pink candy melts, and microwave one minute at a time, stirring between intervals, until completely melted.  Using the tines of a fork, drizzle the melted chocolate over the popcorn, being sure not to concentrate too much chocolate in one spot.

While the chocolate is still wet, use ¼ cup of the goldfish crackers, and toss gently over the top of the drizzled chocolate.


Repeat the same process with 1 tablespoon of the green nonpareils.  Set aside, to allow the chocolate to set.


Repeat the entire process on a second cookie sheet, this time, using the purple candy melts.

Once the chocolate on both trays has fully set, gently break apart the set choc0late by hand, and combine the two trays together. This recipe can be made up to 2 days in advance, and stored in a tightly covered container. Do not refrigerate, as this may cause condensation that can create soggy popcorn.

For extra festive flair, We love to scoop our Mermaid Munch into lilac mini popcorn boxes.  We created a cute custom label and attached it to the front of each container.
