Valentine’s Day Popcorn Recipe!

IMG_0419web

 

Good morning readers! Today I have a great Valentine’s Day gift idea and party recipe for you!

Today we’re making some Valentine’s Day popcorn!

And truth be told, I make a version of this holiday popcorn at Christmas as well, just with a different color scheme ;o)

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Popcorn: I use microwave popcorn, but you can use whatever you prefer. (Sometimes I get crazy and use kettle corn, yay baby!)
  • Pink and red candy melts
  • Some Valentine’s Day M&Ms or other candies you prefer
  • Optional: Gift bags (I found our cute boxes at Michael’s Craft Store)

Step 1:

Start off by popping your popcorn, then spreading it out over some waxed paper.

 

Step 2:

Next melt your candy melts in a glass container. I melted mine in the microwave. Check and stir the candies every 30 seconds until it is nice and smooth.

Step 3:

Next drizzle your pink mixture on to the popcorn using a spoon. Repeat with the red candy.

Step 4:

Finish it up by sprinkling some Valentine’s M&Ms over the melted candy while it is still soft. That way your M&Ms will stick!

Step 5:

It should look something like this when you’re done. Now let the melted candy cool.

Step 6:

Once the candy is cooled, break it up into pieces and serve in a bowl. Or add some to party favor boxes like these and give them out to your friends & family!

I hope you enjoy this popcorn as much as we did!

All I can tell you is that little bowl in the background was gone about 2 seconds after I took this picture!

  1. We also added tiny twist pretzels. I have one child that doesn’t love popcorn but loves pretzels. Although I think she’ll be a fan when it’s covered in chocolate!

  2. This is awesome. We made them today and it was WAY easier than we thought it would be and had fun doing it. Thanks for the idea as usual :)

  5. I made these for the kids to have while watching a movie tonight. I added some Snap pretzels to mine and used peanut M&Ms. Addictive…

  6. These were great. I now have saved some blue m&m’s and purchased some white vanilla melts (team colors) for a treat when my daughter’s have pee wee games and cheering competitions! Yay for quick and easy treats!
