But since I can't eat every single heart box of chocolate I buy (I never have a problem buying chocolates for myself, FYI), I decided to get my chocolate fix the semi-healthy way this time.
Air popped pop corn is a low-calorie, healthy way to munch on something savory without feeling too guilty. Add a little bit of melted white chocolate and some heart sprinkles and it becomes an extra festive treat.
So go ahead and make this tonight or really any night this week if your heart desires. It's the perfect Valentine's snack to enjoy for one, two or four. Happy Monday!
White Chocolate Heart Popcorn:
- 1/2 cup popped kernels (I use my Whirley Pop, it makes the best tasting popcorn I've ever had!)
- 1 12oz. bag of white chocolate melting chips
- Valentine's themed sprinkles (easy to find at grocery stores-mine are from Walmart)
~Make popcorn and set aside to cool in a large bowl
~Melt white chocolate according to package (usually involves defrosting in the microwave for 30 second intervals and stirring in-between...the stirring is key!)
~Once chocolate is melted, pour over popcorn and mix together-try to do this step quickly so the chocolate doesn't harden
~Mix in sprinkles
~Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper in a single layer (I used cut up wax paper bags since I didn't have parchment paper) and allow to cool at room temperature or put out in your freezing cold garage like me for twenty minutes
~Once chocolate has hardened, enjoy!
