  • Melt each color of candy melts. I typically place the melts in a bowl and microwave them at 15 second intervals. Stir after each 15 minute interval until fully melted. Add melted candy by spoonfuls to the snack mix.

  • Gently stir the ingredients together until the melted candy has coated much of the popcorn and cereal. Spread the snack mix on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Sprinkle some sprinkles over the mix.
