Here is a recipe for a Valentine’s Day Treat!

What you need:

  • 2 bags microwave popcorn or 1/2- 2/3 cup popcorn kernels, popped
  • 12 oz bag vanilla-flavored Candy Melts (i.e.Wilton Candy Melts (use the pink for this Valentine recipe)
  • 2 cups pretzels- broken into pieces
  • 1 – 1.5 cups M&Ms
  • Sprinkles, Nonpareils, Holiday shaped candies for decoration

How to make it

  • Pop popcorn and set aside.  Be sure to pick any unpopped kernels out– they aren’t fun to bite into when you don’t expect them!
    Melt the candy melts at 30-second intervals in the microwave, stirring frequently until melted.
  • Toss broken pretzels and M&Ms into the bowl with popcorn.  Then pour the melted candy over the top and combine with a rubber spatula- using 2 rubber spatulas may work too.
  • Spread mixture out on a sheet of wax paper
  • Sprinkle the nonpareils, candy bits or sprinkles
  • After the chocolate dries/firms up again, break into bits and either store in an airtight container (for about a week) or package it up into treat bags to share with friends, classmates, and neighbors!
