Shark Bait Snack Mix
Here’s what you need to make Shark Bait Snack Mix:
- 1 Bag Butter Flavored Puffcorn – hulless popcorn snack
- 1 Bag White Candy Melts
- Blue and Green Sprinkles
- Gummy Shark Candy
- Vegetable Oil (optional)
Place puffcorn on a large baking sheet.
Melt entire bag of candy melts in the microwave – stirring frequently to avoid burning.
Add a tablespoon or two of vegetable oil to your candy melts IF it seems too thick to pour.
Next, pour the candy melts over the puffcorn and stir around to cover all the puffcorn. You may need to use your hands.
Add sprinkles to the puffcorn and mix.
Spread out into an even layer on the baking sheet and top with more sprinkles.
Top with gummy sharks and allow to harden.
