It’s my birthday today so I thought I would celebrate with this cake batter popcorn! This birthday cake popcorn is coated with a cake batter flavored white chocolate and decorated with sprinkles. It is such a fun and festive sweet treat for a movie night with the kids, or when you need a sweet treat. Also, how cute would this be for party favors for kids birthday parties?!



  • 24 cups (2-3.4oz bags) of microwaved popcorn  (butter or plain)
  • 6 ounces white chocolate (almond bark or vanilla candy coating)
  • 1/2 cup funfetti cake mix
  • 1/41/2 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • 1/4 cup M&Ms Minis


  1. Pop both bags of popcorn and spread into an even layer on top of your parchment lined baking sheet.
  2. Using a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate by microwaving for 45 seconds, and then for 30 second increments making sure to stir well between each microwave session.
  3. To avoid seizing your chocolate, you’ll want to stop microwaving just before the chocolate is fully melted, and continue to stir to melt the chocolate fully.
  4. Stir the cake mix into the white chocolate, and mix together until smooth.
  5. Drop the chocolate mixture all over the over the popcorn. Use a rubber spatula to gently mix the popcorn and fully cover the popcorn in chocolate.
  6. Scatter the sprinkles and m&ms on top of the popcorn and mix together again.
  7. Allow the mixture to cool completely. It took at least three minutes before it was fully cool, but you may want to wait longer.
  8. Break your birthday cake popcorn into pieces and enjoy.


The leftover cake mix can be frozen in ziplock bags or used to make other desserts.

I removed all of the brown M&Ms from the minis before adding them for a more festive appearance.

If you are looking to gift this popcorn or use it for birthday party goodie bags, I really like to use these bags for small sized portions. (affiliate link)
