Chocolate Cherry Heart Bouquets

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.¬†

Ingredients

  • 12 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 1/2 cups dried tart cherries
  • 1 pound mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips¬†
  • red food coloring
  • long lollipop sticks or thick bamboo skewers

Instructions

  1. Mix popcorn and cherries in a large bowl.
  2. In a large saucepan, cook marshmallows, white chocolate, and butter on low heat until melted and smooth.
  3. Stir in a few drops of red food coloring to tint the mixture pink.
  4. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Pour marshmallow mixture over popcorn and cherries; toss gently until well coated.
  5. 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.
  6. Insert a lollipop stick in the base of each heart. Place on the wax paper to cool completely.
  7. 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!
