Valentine's Day White Chocolate Popcorn Recipe

This White Chocolate Popcorn recipe is a wonderful combination of sweet and salty and is a great Valentine's Day Popcorn treat. Simply change out the sprinkles and pretzels for different holidays and celebrations or team colors.

It's the perfect party popcorn.

Last year my sons were going to a Valentine's Day party with their church youth group and at the last minute, told me they needed to bring a treat.

That's usually how they roll. They wait until the last minute and expect me to magically have or make something. Thankfully, I had an idea and a Walmart close by so off I went.

How to Make White Chocolate Popcorn

I made enough for two large tubs full of popcorn but you can easily cut this recipe in half to make just enough for a family or yourself if you are a popcorn lover.

Ingredients:

2 bags of microwave popcorn

1 12-ounce bag of white chocolate chips

One container of colored sprinkles

One container of heart-shaped chocolate covered pretzels - this is totally optional. You can substitute any candy you would like but if you want to use the pretzels, the ones I used are Palmer brand and are from Dollar General

Directions:

Microwave the popcorn and place it in a single layer on a nonstick cookie sheet after it has popped. If you do not have a nonstick cookie sheet place parchment paper on the cookie sheet first to prevent sticking.

Place white chocolate in a microwave-safe container. I like to use a glass measuring cup but any good quality shallow-ish glass bowl will work. Microwave for 30 seconds, remove and stir. Continue microwaving for 10 to 15-second intervals until the chocolate is melted.

Baking sheet covered in freshly popped popcorn with white chocolate drizzled over top of it and candies tossed in for flavor and color.

You'll need to act quickly at this point and cover the popcorn with the melted chocolate. While the chocolate is still sticky, shake on the sprinkles.

Now, toss the popcorn to mix in the white chocolate and sprinkles.

Once the popcorn has dried place into a tub or serving container. I used tubs I found at Walmart and I believe there were less than a dollar each.

All the sprinkles and prettiness reminded me of an ice cream party I had a few years ago. The treats were almost too pretty to eat.
