Cake Batter Popcorn Recipe
Cake batter is one of those flavors that I just can’t get enough of.
I could eat an entire cake’s worth of batter right out of the bowl–maybe two if it is funfetti cake mix! It is just so stinkin’ amazing. But since that would certainly result in a nasty tummy ache, I opt for cake batter flavored treats such as this popcorn or cake batter blondies instead.
My love for cake batter and for gourmet popcorn combine with this easy cake batter popcorn recipe.

How to Make Cake Batter Popcorn
Start by gathering everything that you will need to make your popcorn.
- Marshmallow Fluff
- vanilla extract
- rainbow sprinkles
You will also need a large microwave-safe bowl, mixing spoon, baking sheet, and non-stick cooking spray or parchment paper.
Start by prepping your baking sheet by covering it with a thin layer of non-stick cooking spray or lining it with parchment paper. This will help keep the popcorn from sticking to the baking sheet as it sets.
Then, empty your entire container of Fluff into a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 25 seconds, stir, then microwave for another 25 seconds.
Mix in butter and vanilla.
Add popcorn, stirring gently to make sure all the popcorn gets coated in Fluff.
Add sprinkles, and stir gently.
Spread coated popcorn out evenly on your baking sheet, then top with remaining sprinkles.
Place baking sheet in the refrigerator to set overnight, or for at least 4 hours.
Popcorn is fully set when it is no longer tacky.
Serve immediately or break up and place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator until ready to enjoy.
