This is a quick and easy Valentine’s Day treat that you can make for a child’s party or a teacher’s gift.

My house is a big fan of Popcorn, whether it is lightly salted, butter flavor, extra butter flavor or sweet & salty flavor. It is done before the night ends.

I realized that my son eats one popcorn now each day. So he makes sure he writes ‘popcorn’ on the grocery list.

You will enjoy this snack mix even if you are not a Valentine’s Day fan. It is great for movie night with the family.

Microwave Popcorn vs. Popcorn Kernels for Valentine’s Day

Whether you used a pre-salt microwavebale popcorn or used a Poprcon maker to make your Valentines Popcorn, it’s your choice.

For this recipe I used microwaveable popcorns. But if you have a popcorn maker, then go ahead and use it.

Just know that 1/4 cup of corns makes about 8 cups of Popcorn.

Plus, use 1/4 teaspoon to sprinkle over it after popping them (if you choose to add salt).

Instead of Pink Candy Melts Wafers

If you aren’t a big fan of the Pink Candy Melts Wafers, then you can use White Chocolate instead.

To make it more fun, you can add your favorite food coloring to the melted white chocolate to add some color to it.

Also, you can use some milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate too.
