Easy Easter Treat for Kids

I’m excited to share the fun, cute and easy Easter treat for kids! If you know me, you know I love popcorn. It’s one of my favorite snacks! See my video on how to make my famous POPCORN, HERE! 

This recipe puts a fun twist on popcorn and adds a little Easter goodness! It’s the perfect treat, handout, snack and Easter basket stuffer! With only 5 simple ingredients, it’s easy to make with kids and takes only about 10 minutes to throw together! Such a fun and delicious recipe to make!

I got all my ingredients at Target in the Easter holiday section, but linked everything you need below via Amazon if you want to Prime everything from home. I also used the pastel M&M’s, but you can get creative and use almost any of the Easter chocolate candies.

Easy Easter Treat for Kids


1 ½ Cup Popcorn Kernels (or 2 bags of microwave popcorn)

1 bag of Easter M&M’s

4 Pastel Colored Food Dyes

16 oz. Vanilla Candy Coating

Pastel Sprinkles


  1. Pop your popcorn! If using an AIR POPPER, I popped 1 ½ cups of kernels into a large bowl. You can also pop 2 bags of microwave popcorn to make it easy. 
  2. Divide the popcorn in half and separate into two large mixing bowls.
  3. Divide your Vanilla Candy Coating into 4 4oz pieces.
  4. Place each of the 4 oz pieces into their own microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave for about 1.5 minutes, mixing every 30 seconds.
  5. Color each bowl a different pastel color using your food dyes! I did yellow, pink, blue and green.
  6. Drizzle two of the colors in one of the bowls of popcorn, and the other two in the other popcorn bowl. Mix with your hands.
  7. Once all the coating is mixed in the two bowls of popcorn, combine the two bowls into one large bowl.
  8. Add sprinkles (as much as desired) and the whole bag of Easter Peanut M&M’s. Mix together and serve!

So easy and so yummy! The colors are amazing and would make perfect as a snack or treat on Easter Sunday. I love a good mix of anything sweet & salty, and this popcorn does the trick!
