Mermaid Popcorn Recipe

Popcorn is an excellent snack because it’s loaded with fiber and flavor. You can easily make it any time of the day and turn it into something delicious like this recipe with a few simple ingredients.

We love making popcorn for movies, parties, or just a weekend snack at home. I even surprised the boys and had a batch of this treat ready for them when they walked in the door!

The fun part about making this recipe is that snuggling on the couch and watching a flick is great. If you’re a fan of Disney movies, you could even dub this popcorn recipe “The Little Mermaid Popcorn” and watch the show!

How do I store popped popcorn so it doesn’t get stale?

Popcorn is a go-to snack for movie nights, game nights, or whenever you need something to munch on. But once you’ve popped a big bowl, what’s the best way to store those fluffy kernels so they stay fresh and crunchy?

The key is to let the popcorn cool completely before transferring it to an airtight container.

Moisture is the enemy of crisp popcorn, so ensure the container is dry and free of residual moisture. A resealable plastic bag or airtight container with a lid will do the trick.

With these tips, you can enjoy your popcorn at its best for days.

Popcorn is a timeless snack that has graced our movie theater nights, game nights, and occasional midnight cravings. But have you ever thought about spicing up how you serve it?

Creating a popcorn bar is a fun and creative way to serve popcorn! Set up multiple bowls of popcorn with varying flavors, such as butter, cheddar, or even caramel.

Add toppings such as chocolate chips, M&Ms, or nuts.

Let your guests customize their popcorn to their liking and get creative with their combinations.

A popcorn bar adds a fun spin to your snack and encourages socialization and interaction among your guests.

So, next time you plan a get-together or movie night, consider serving up a popcorn bar for some added excitement and deliciousness.

This Mermaid Popcorn Recipe is the perfect snack. It's a dessert and a snack in one!


  • ½ cup popcorn kernels
  • ½ cup melted salted butter
  • 1 ½ cups blue white chocolate melting chips
  • Mermaid sprinkles


  1. Add 1/2 cup of the butter into a pot and then add 1 kernel of popcorn. Turn the stove to medium heat until that one kernel pops, and then turn to medium-high heat.
  2. Add the rest of the kernels and keep the heat on medium. Make sure to put the lid on top! It will take a few moments for the kernels to start popping.
  3. As soon as they start popping rapidly, shake the pan side to side so that the kernels move about that aren't popped so can pop.
  4. Once the popping slows, turn off the heat and shake.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the popcorn on the baking sheet. Spread out.
  6. Melt the blue melting chocolate chips in the microwave based on the bag directions.
  7. Pour the melted chocolate into a plastic bag and snip off the corner.
  8. Drizzle the blue chocolate over the top of the popcorn and add the mermaid sprinkles.
  9. Put the pan in the fridge or freeze it for 10 minutes to harden.
  10. Break the popcorn into pieces and enjoy.
