Sweet and Salty Valentine Popcorn

I always like to have little treats around for the boys during the holidays. I usually leave them next to their door so that when they wake up they have a nice little surprise waiting for them. As most moms know, kids have WAY too much when it comes to knick knacks and toys, so I usually go with something they can eat. Who doesn't love holiday treats?!

So for Valentines I am going with something, cute, sweet and festive. Valentine popcorn! I mean could anyone resist popcorn covered in candy melts, sprinkled with sea salt and tossed with red and pink M&M's...I think not. Happy Early Valentines Day!

You will need:

1/2 cup of unpopped popcorn
1 bad of candy melts
1 bag of Valentine M&M's
sea salt

First, pop your popcprn and set aside.

Now over a double boiler on low heat, lets melt the candy melts. Stirring occasionally so they do not burn.

Once completely melted, pour over the popcorn and toss until the popcorn is fully coated.

Add sea salt to taste.

Add in the M&M's. 

On a sheet pan covered in wax paper, spread the popcorn onto the wax paper and let it sit there until it has set, dried. 


Now go and enjoy it with your kids, your Valentines or keep it all to yourself!
