Easy Valentine White Chocolate Popcorn with M&M’s
1 cup popped popcorn, white variety if possible
12-16 oz white chocolate buttons or chocolate chips
1/2 – 1 package of Valentine M&M candy
Pop the popcorn in an air popper if using, or the microwave or set aside if already popped. Do not add in extra butter.
Spread a long piece of about 2-3 feet of parchment or waxed paper on your table or counter.
Next, in a microwavable bowl, place the white chocolate.
Heat the chocolate in the microwave for 20 seconds; stir.
Continue this process PRed Cany Snack Mix
Until the chocolate is smooth and the temperature a little more than that of a baby bath.
It is important to warm the chocolate slowly so it does not burn.
White Covered Popcorn with PinCandy Snack Mix
Pour the smooth and melted chocolate over HALF of the popped popcorn and stir gently.
ADD in popcorn to your liking. Some people like more chocolate on their popcorn than others. I used about 3/4 of the popcorn when I made it.
Stir the popcorn gently until it is all evenly coated.
Spread on the parchment or waxed paper.
Allow to set up until the chocolate is set.
***NOTE: I like to LIGHTLY sprinkle a VERY LITTLE salt when I first spread out the popcorn to set up. This is a personal choice and USE CAUTION not to use too much, and this is NOT necessary, but does give a bit of balance to the sweet.
Breaking up the set up chocolate covered popcorn, put it into a bowl and add in the Valentine M&M’s. Serve.
OR keep in an air-tight container and use within 2-3 days for best results.
