Okay, I usually don't post twice in a day but I CANNOT contain myself about this any longer! I saw this recipe and then this recipe and it came to me…I need to combine the two to make the perfect treat! BIRTHDAY CAKE BATTER POPCORN! Are you kidding me? This stuff has to be what they serve in heaven! Salty, sweet, crunchy, colorful. It is what dreams are made of!
Give it a try this weekend. It would be adorable packaged up and given as a favor for a birthday party!

Birthday Cake Batter Popcorn
6 cups popped pop corn
1 1/2 cups or so almond bark (or white chocolate), melted
1 cup cake batter mix (I used yellow cake batter but white would work too)
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
Melt the almond bark/chocolate in the microwave. I put it in the microwave in 30 second intervals stirring between each 30 seconds until it is fully melted.
Add the vegetable shortening and stir until it is melted. I usually don't have to put it back in the microwave to completely melt it but you can if you have to.
Then add the cake mix.
Pour onto the popcorn and coat evenly.
Pour the popcorn out onto cookie sheets to cool/harden. Sprinkle immediately with your choice of sprinkles.
Wait until fully hardened (if you can) and enjoy!
