4 cups lightly salted popcorn

1/2 cup cream cheese frosting 

1 1/4 cups crumbled red velvet cake (from 1 box red velvet cake mix, prepared according to package directions) 


  1. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the popcorn in a large bowl. Place the frosting in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds until it turns into a thick glaze.
  3. Pour the frosting over the popcorn and gently fold together until all of the popcorn is evenly coated. Add 1 cup of the cake crumbs and gently fold. Turn the coated popcorn out onto the lined sheet tray and smooth out in a single layer. Sprinkle with the remaining cake crumbs. Let sit at room temperature until the frosting is set, about 30 minutes.
