Valentine’s Day Popcorn Mix Recipe with Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt

Disclosure AffiliateValentine's Day Popcorn Mix Recipe with Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt

Over the past few months I have become a BIG popcorn fanatic. After I have put in a hard day of work, my favorite thing to do is make myself a big bowl of popcorn (yes a BIG bowl all for myself) and sit on the couch to watch one of my favorite DVRd shows (i.e. Nashville or Jane the Virgin). Sometimes I’ll make regular buttered popcorn, but I usually like to switch it up. I’ll add cheddar cheese powder, make a sweet drizzle with powdered sugar or my FAVORITE – melt in some dark chocolate chips and load on the sea salt.

Valentine Sprinkles

So, along the lines of my favorite TV snack, this Valentine’s Day Popcorn Mix Recipe with Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt is a step up – adding in a bit of color to make the perfect snack for a Valentine party, to put in a jar as a Valentine gift, or just to treat yourself when watching romantic comedies on Netflix. You can play around with the mixture and have fun adding different flavors of M&M’s and all kinds of cute Valentine sprinkles!

Valentine’s Day Popcorn Mix Recipe

 
Ingredients:

1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp olive oil
1/3 cup popcorn kernels
5 oz dark chocolate
M&M’s as desired
Valentine Sprinkles

Directions:

Heat oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Add a few popcorn kernels and cover pan. Once the kernels begin to pop, add the remaining kernels to the pan and give it a good shake. Keep popcorn on the stove top until popping slows down to 2-3 seconds between pops. (See stove top popping tips here.) Remove from heat and add to a large mixing bowl. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, constantly stirring until it reaches a smooth consistency. (Alternatively, you can melt in the microwave, heating 20-30 seconds at a time and stirring each time you heat.) Once fully melted, drizzle over the popcorn. Allow chocolate to harden. Mix in M&M’s and sprinkles. Serve.
