White Chocolate Valentine Popcorn

We have a bit of a Valentine's party with the grands over here every year.  A favorite treat is always the Valentine popcorn...which is also easy to package in clear cellophane bags and tie with a red ribbon as a take-home treat.  

  • 2 packages microwave popcorn, popped (white or kettle corn variety)...about 16 cups
  • 8 oz. / 225 gram package Baker's white chocolate squares, melted*
  • 1 cup pink and red Smarties or M & M's.
  1. Place popcorn in large mixing bowl.
  2. Melt chocolate according to directions on package.
  3. Pour warm chocolate over popcorn and toss to coat.
  4. Add candies and stir well.
  5. Allow to cool.
  6. Package as you please.
*You can substitute white chocolate chips, but they must be of good quality or they will clump when melting.
