Shark Week Shark Bait


  • 1/4 cup Air Popped Popcorn
  • 1 bag White Chocolate Chips
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • Blue Food Coloring
  • Blue Sprinkles
  • Colored Sixlet Candies
  • Gummy Sharks
  • Pretzel Gold Fish


Pop the popcorn in an air popper. Remove the kernels by running the popcorn through a cooling rack over a cookie sheet.

In a microwave safe bowl, place the white chocolate chips and butter. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until smooth. If it doesn’t become smooth, add a little bit of milk and it should thin out.

Add a couple of drops of food coloring to the white chocolate mix to make it ocean blue. In a large bowl, pour the now blue chocolate over the popcorn and mix well, coating each popcorn evenly. Generously add blue sprinkles to the popcorn to cover the batch. Let sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.

When the chocolate is dry to the touch, mix in the sixlets, gummy sharks. and pretzels. Mix well and serve!
