Looking for party food ideas? This easy recipe combines funfetti cake batter and puffcorn to make a treat that would be fun to serve!
What is it about sprinkles that make people happy? Maybe it is the memory of childhood parties and sweet treats. Or maybe the mix of bright, cheerful colors is enough to bring on the smiles.
The first thing you’ll need to do it heat the cake mix since you shouldn’t consume raw flour. You can heat in it in the microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds on high, stirring every 15 seconds, until it reaches 160˚F.
Or heat the cake mix in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through, until it reaches 160˚F.
Put 10 cups of puffcorn into a large bowl. Melt white chocolate melting wafers in the microwave following the directions on the package. Stir in shortening, pour over puffcorn and stir to coat.
Sprinkle powdered funfetti cake mix over the puffcorn and stir to coat.
Add additional sprinkles, if desired. Spread the funfetti cake batter puffcorn on a piece of waxed paper to cool and set.
When I posted my peanut butter puffcorn recipe, I was surprised at how many people didn’t know what puffcorn is. Where I live in Minnesota, it is sold everywhere from Target & Walmart to the grocery store and even at the gas stations. Here are a couple of brands’ pages that you can check out to see if it is sold in your area: http://www.olddutchfoods.com/products#/puffcorn andhttp://www.fritolay.com/our-snacks/chesters-butter-puffcorn.html
