If you’re someone who likes to watch movies or have a series marathon of your favorite show while savoring freshly popped sweet popcorn, 5-Minute Crafts has something for you. We’d like to show you how to make colorful popcorn quickly and easily with just 3 ingredients and in 4 steps.
Surprise your friends with this sweet idea the next time you get together with them.


  • ½ cup corn kernels (about 100 g)
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 2 packages of colored candies (about 100 g)

Step 1

  • Heat a skillet on the cooktop over a low flame. Add the oil and the candies. Any colorful candies like Skittles will do.

  • Allow them to heat up for a few minutes, maintaining the same temperature during this time. However, make sure they don’t melt.

Step 2

  • Add the corn kernels to the skillet and use a spatula to mix everything well. You can also use a wooden spoon.
  • Make sure that both ingredients are distributed evenly over the skillet, so that they cook evenly.

Step 3

  • Cover the pan with a tempered glass lid that covers the whole skillet. In a couple of minutes, you will hear and see that the corn is starting to pop.

Step 4

  • Keep the pan covered for 4 to 6 minutes. Then, turn off the stove and remove from the heat. Before removing the lid, wait for the popcorn to stop popping.

Enjoy your homemade colored popcorn

  • Before serving, let the popcorn cool for a few minutes.
  • You can serve it with your favorite beverage.
