One of my favorite colors is pink. I am not sure if it is because I am surrounded by boys, but I just love the sweetness of pink. So, this Valentine snack is right up my alley. From delicious white chocolate to the sugar cookie flavor. This is my kind of popcorn mixture for sure.
The following ingredients are affiliate links on Amazon because they may be a bit hard to find in your normal store. I wanted you to be able to see exactly which things we are using.
White Chocolate Chips – You can use any brand you prefer. I am a Nestle Toll-house lover myself. You could also use bark if you prefer.
Large Marshmallows – The marshmallows make this recipe, I think. Such a yummy, creamy, flavor.
Pink Sugar Crystals – I especially love these bright pink sugar crystals from Wilton.
Valentine Sprinkles – Choose the ones you like.
Optional – to really up the Valentine’s Day factor of this white chocolate popcorn mix, you could add in some fun conversation hearts.
Reminder, not all ingredients in the Valentine Sugar Cookie Popcorn Recipe are linked above, just the ones that may be a bit difficult to find or that you might be unsure of what to look for.
Must Have Resources:
When making this popped popcorn sweet treat at home, you really need to have the following Amazon affiliate tools on hand.
Cookie Sheet – Any cookie sheet will do. I just like these. 🙂
Parchment Paper – Before you spread the popcorn on your large baking sheet, be sure to cover it with parchment paper or waxed paper. Either will make clean up a breeze, but will also allow the valentine’s day snack to release easily without you having to spread melted butter anywhere!
Cookie Cutters – I love this Valentine’s Day set. But, if you are just going to break the cookies into pieces, I guess you don’t need to make fun shapes…
Medium Microwaveable Bowl – Whether using chocolate chips, bark, or candy melts, you will have to melt it. I like my set of glass bowls for microwaving. So much easier than a double boiler.
Large Mixing Bowl – You will need to mix the popcorn in a large bowl once you pour the melted chocolate on it. I especially love my set like this. The rubber bottom keeps the bowls from sliding around when you are trying to mix stuff.
