Colors. Sweetness. Salt. Chocolate. Joy. In my opinion, these are all lovely things best served with sprinkles. Is that a weird thing to say? Probably. I'm gonna roll with it. But anyway, all those words can describe this popcorn too. It's a fun one. It's cutesy.
I made this one night to eat while watching How to Get Away with Murder. If you watch it, please come talk to me because I have a lot of feelings about it. I finished both seasons in about a week and a half. So good. And wow, Viola Davis. I totally understand why she got an Emmy. So much raw emotion. This recipe is sunny and happy to offset the darkness and sadness in the show. It works out.
