We've teamed up with JOLLY TIME Pop Corn to share a delicious treat for you and your Valentine! There's nothing better than curling up with a nice bowl of popcorn to watch a movie with your loved ones, but we've added a little chocolatey cherry goodness to the mix! They were so easy to throw together, and your kids will love mixing the popcorn or drizzling the top with chocolate. They make a great gift, or just as a Valentine's treat for yourself. Enter below for a chance to win a JOLLY TIME Pop Corn Prize Pack of your own!
Chocolate Cherry Heart Bouquets:
12 cups popped JOLLY TIME Butter Light Microwave Pop Corn
(made with the Smart Balance patented blend of oils)
1 1/2 cups dried tart cherries
1 pound of mini marshmallows
1 cup white chocolate chips (or vanilla candy coating)
1/4 cup butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or dark chocolate morsels)
red food coloring
long lollipop sticks or thick bamboo skewers
Mix popcorn and cherries in a large bowl. In a large saucepan, cook marshmallows, white chocolate, and butter on low heat until melted and smooth. Stir in a few drops of red food coloring to tint the mixture pink.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Pour marshmallow mixture over popcorn and cherries; toss gently until well coated. With wet or buttered hands (I sprayed mine lightly with cooking spray), shape mixture into 3 1/2 to 4 inch hearts. You can use a cookie cutter to help shape them, or do it by hand. Insert a lollipop stick in the base of each heart. Place on the wax paper to cool completely.
Melt the chocolate chips and drizzle it over the hearts. They look cute wrapped in cellophane and tied with ribbon, or standing up in a vase or jar as a candy bouquet!
Makes about 8.
