Skittles Candy Popcorn Recipe

Transform regular popcorn into sweet candy popcorn in just a few minutes.


  • 4 cups of popcorn (plain, unsalted)
  • 4 oz butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of Skittles® (use one flavor for each batch)
  • Waxed paper


  1. Pop your corn according to package instructions. Place in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Rip a sheet of waxed paper (about 8 – 10″ long) and lie on your counter.
  3. Melt butter and brown sugar on the stove on medium heat. Stir frequently to avoid scorching.
  4. Pour in the Skittles® candies. Stir until melted (you might need to mash them down to help them dissolve).
  5. Once done melting pour the hot candy mixture over the top of the popcorn.
  6. Use a spatula and fold in the mixture throughout the popcorn until well covered.
  7. Dump the popcorn onto the waxed paper and spread thinly to allow to cool.
  8. If you wish to make popcorn balls, allow mixture to cool for 3 – 4 minutes (or until you can touch it). Then, spray cooking spray or butter your hands and form the popcorn into balls shapes. Set aside.
  9. Allow all to fully set (around 15 – 20 minutes)
  10. Store in airtight containers for about a week
