  1. Generously spray a bundt pan.
  2. Place the popcorn in a large bowl.

Immediately pour over the popcorn and stir until the popcorn has been coated with the mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips and white chocolate chips.

Recipe Notes:

*Duncan Hines cake mix makes a more red cake than other brands that I’ve tried.
