Freshly popped popcorn covered in pink candy melts and decorated with cute Valentine’s Day sprinkles!
Okay, so I’ve been on a bit of a stress-overload lately. 21 credits really is difficult to complete, but I’m risking it so I can just graduate on time!
Because if I didn’t, then I would have to come back in the Fall, aaaaand that’s SO not happening! 😛
And for any of my readers that live in the north, are you sick of this cold as much as I am?! Now that the holidays are done and over with, the snow and cold just need to leave! Buuut I guess Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, and somehow that means 6 more weeks of winter? As it was blizzarding here in WNY yesterday, I could’ve told you that! Although, the movie Groundhog Day is just the best thing ever, so I guess that groundhog can continue doing his thing
Okay, okay, food time! And this time around, I have a recipe for chocolate covered popcorn. Chocolate covered popcorn. Chocolate. Covered. Popcorn. Yeahhhhhh
And not just any chocolate, it’s PINK chocolate. Err, pink WHITE chocolate. Pink white chocolate covered popcorn. There we go!
And then of course I decorated the popcorn with adorable Valentine’s Day sprinkles and those cute little convo hearts (that apparently still say lame things like “bling”) 😛
- 1 bag of popped popcorn (I used Pop Secret)
- 12 oz bag of pink candy melts
- 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
- Valentine’s Day sprinkles
- conversation hearts, if desired
- Place the popped popcorn in a large bowl and set aside.
- In a medium-small microwave-safe bowl, heat the pink candy melts and vegetable shortening in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until fully melted and creamy. Pour over the popcorn, and use a spoon to gently toss the popcorn around until fully coated. Pour the coated popcorn onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Generously sprinkle on the Valentine’s Day sprinkles as much as you desired.
- Let the popcorn hardened completely, then break up into smaller pieces. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
