Easy 4th of July Treats

Homemade popcorn is one of my favorite treats. It is relatively low in calories and so delicious AND it doesn’t get any easier to make! I’ve tried a ton of popcorn recipes, but this white chocolate version is one of my favorites!

I used a patriotic bag of M&M’s which had red, white and blue candies, but you can use a regular bag and just pick out the ones you need if you can’t find the patriotic ones. (I’ve done this many times!) You can switch this popcorn recipe up for any holiday or celebration by adding different colors of M&M’s, but isn’t this patriotic popcorn so festive and cute?
