Patriotic Popcorn & Printable Cone Wrap

Patriotic Popcorn

Do you LOVE the ReD, wHiTE and BlUE? Then this will make it even BETTER!

I found these adorable 4th of July cone covers designed by Heather of ChickaBug Blog and just had to make something to go in her very cool printable.   

After searching around for ideas, I set to work making some Red and Blue Popcorn which I made by coating popcorn in a bit of white chocolate and dry cake mix.     Yes, I wrote cake mix, and it turned out really, really good.  I hope you’ll give it a try this 4th of July!
