Are you getting sick of my lovey dovey mushy Valentine’s Day themed posts yet?
They’re almost over.
I found this recipe for white chocolate conversation heart popcorn on Pinterest a few weeks ago when I was trying to help a guy friend come up with gift suggestions for his girlfriend. He didn’t like the idea but I loved it. This Valentine’s themed popcorn is really colorful and festive, and – even better – it’s simple and inexpensive.
So, of course, I gave it a try!
It really wasn’t hard to do. And I love recipes that look super complex and time consuming but are really really effortless. You just need some plain (air popped) popcorn, white chocolate, sprinkles and candy hearts.
I skipped the salt and used about five cups of popped corn, half a bag of white chocolate chips, an uncountable amount of sprinkles and a fistful of conversation hearts.
My measuring skills are on point you guys.
Melt the chocolate, pour it over the popcorn, use a rubber spatula to gently fold the white chocolate in, and then add the sprinkles and candy hearts.
The trick is to spread the popcorn out on a flat surface while it hardens so you avoid having clumps of it if you just leave it in the bowl.
I’m impatient so I just stuck my popcorn in the freezer for five minutes.
Plus, it’s super fun because nobody notices that the popcorn is doused in white chocolate until they’re tasting it.
