White Chocolate Valentine Popcorn


A fun treat to make in the upcoming weeks.  You'll need:


16 cups popped, popcorn 
1 bag valentine colored M&Ms
7 boxes, (.75oz.) conversation hearts or a small bag
1 bag vanilla flavored chocolate candy wafers
red food coloring


Use an air popper for the popcorn.  Roughly measure out 16 cups and pour into another bowl.  


Pour the bag of M&Ms in with the popcorn and slightly mix.  (you don't want all the M&Ms to fall to the bottom of the bowl)  Pour all your conversation hearts into another bowl.  Reserve 1/2 cup of your chocolate wafers and pour the rest of the wafers in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Keep up this 30 second process until all the chocolate is melted.



Pour melted chocolate over the popcorn and mix.  


When it is well coated, add the conversation hearts and mix.  Lay out a sheet of parchment paper.  Pour the popcorn mixture over the paper and spread out. 


Put the reserved chocolate wafers in the bowel you used for the chocolate.  Melt this with the same 30 second process.  Add a few drops of red food coloring.  

 
Drizzle this pink chocolate over the popcorn.  I put mine in a plastic bag and piped it over.  For piping: scoop your chocolate into the corner of a small zip lock bag.  Cut off the tip of the bag and squeeze chocolate through. You can just drizzle it with a spoon too. 



Let sit to harden.  


Play around with the mix and add other valentine candies or drizzle with dark chocolate.
