Valentine’s Day Treat– White Chocolate Popcorn

I thought once the holidays past I would not be in the position to be making treats but here again I find myself in a situation that I need an easy and last-minute Valentine’s Day treat. This time it is for the 60 employees at my daughter’s school.

No, I don’t have to make everything just a contribution. Not feeling in the mood to bake anything, I decided on this super easy and very addicting White Chocolate Popcorn, with Valentine’s Day twist.

Valentine’s Day Treat– White Chocolate Popcorn

This is such a fun and easy treat that you really don’t need a special holiday to make it. You can also use colored chocolate melts in whatever theme you might want and of course switch out the sprinkles and the M & M’s.

This would be a great recipe to go inside the You are a Pop-ular teacher or You really make me Pop Valentines. 

I made the mistake of not taking out the unpopped kernels while I was melting the chocolate so I had to fish it out later. A little messy, so be sure and do this before adding any chocolate.

The kids will enjoy making this with you just expect to have a lot missing.

It would be adorable packaged up in small bags or you can use any type of container that might fit the holiday you are making this for.
