When researching how I could make popcorn orange and black,  I came across  pumpkin spice that are orange. After a further Google search, I found candy melts in  black in too.  Done! My orange and black popcorn plan has come together!

3 bowls of Halloween popcorn, some orange and some black

After popping the corn, the candy melts are melted in separate bowls. This can be done in the microwave, just follow the instruction on the package because if it is overheated (just like chocolate) it will start to firm up.

Once the candy melts are melted, the popcorn is carefully mixed in until it is well coated. The coated popcorn is then spread out onto parchment paper and allowed to set. That’s it!

Every year around Halloween, I love to post a fun, Halloween-themed dish. Along with this Halloween popcorn, I’ve made a Halloween Brownie Graveyard (see pictures below) Blood Orange Martini, Spider Cupcakes, but the most elaborate one I have done, is a Skull and Dagger Cake. That was so much fun to make.
