White Chocolate Valentine's Day Popcorn

white-chocolate-popcorn-recipe

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I had a busy Sunday of recipe post cooking, including this sweet treat! With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, I wanted to share with you a simple, fun and perfect for any age treat! Popcorn is the ultimate snack food and when mixed with white chocolate, conversation hearts and Valentine's Day M&M's, it turns into the sweetest snack ever! 

Growing up, I remember my mom making carmel corn popcorn balls around Christmas and how delicious they were. Although this uses white chocolate instead of carmel, it's just as sweet, delicious and addicting! This makes for such a cute Valentine's Day treat for children or even your co-workers, like I did! And the packaging is totally up to you. I used clear treat bags and tied them off with pink ribbon, but you could easily display them in cute cupcake wrappers or use Valentine's Day themed candy boxes! 

**A few notes: Just a warning, the conversation hearts are considerably harder than the popcorn and M&M's so be careful when chewing! And if all the popcorn didn't pop in the microwave, be sure to remove any kernels that are left over before adding the candy and white chocolate :)

White Chocolate Valentine's Day Popcorn

{what you will need}
1.5 bags popped popcorn
8 ounces white chocolate baking bar
12 ounces white chocolate morsels
8 ounce bag conversation hearts
11 ounces Valentine's Day M&Ms
Pink food coloring, if desired

{directions}
Pop the popcorn according to package instructions. Place in large mixing bowl. Once cool, add the conversation hearts and M&Ms. Meanwhile melt the chocolate. You can do this in the microwave or oven. Here are my instructions for the oven: heat the oven to 300 degrees. Place all the chocolate in a 13 x 9 glass baking dish {break up the chocolate bar into smaller pieces so they are close to the size of the morsels}. Place the baking dish in the oven and leave the oven door slightly ajar. Cook for approximately 8 minutes, or until completely melted, stirring every 2 minutes to check the consistency. Once the chocolate is completely melted, remove from the oven and add desired amount of food coloring to tint the chocolate pink; continue to stir until fully incorporated. Add the chocolate to the popcorn and candy mixture and stir with a rubber spatula from the bottom up to make sure the chocolate sticks to all the popcorn and candy. When the chocolate is fully incorporated, place popcorn mixture onto rimmed baking sheets, smoothing into one layer. Allow to dry completely or speed up the process by placing in the freezer. Once dry, break into pieces and package with festive treat bags or candy boxes, if desired. Enjoy...it's addicting ;)
