Here’s an easy and sweet snack to make with your sweethearts for Valentine’s Day – Valentines Popcorn. There’s nothing more fun than sharing a big bowl of popcorn with your loved ones.
Here’s what you need to make Valentines Popcorn:
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
- 5 oz dark chocolate
- M&M’s as desired
- Sprinkles as desired
In a sauce pan heat the oil over medium heat. Add a couple popcorn kernels and cover. Once the kernels begin to pop add the remaining kernels to the pan and give it a good shake. Keep popcorn on the stove top until popping slows down to 2-3 seconds between pops. Remove from heat and add to a large mixing bowl.
In a double boiler melt the chocolate, constantly stirring until it reaches a smooth consistency. Once fully melted drizzle over the popcorn. Allow chocolate to harden.
Add in M&M’s and sprinkles. Serve.
This Valentines Popcorn also makes a nice mason jar gift to ‘share the love’ with teachers and other service workers.
