I know, I know, it’s the cheesiest holiday of the year, but I can’t help but secretly love all of that pink and red that comes in the middle of the cold and otherwise uneventful month of February. Every year I try to come up with a recipe or two to celebrate this Hallmark holiday, last year I made these Chocolate Chip Strawberry Muffins and this S’more Martini, and this year I made it all about red hots! Whether you are looking for ideas for your kids’ school Valentine’s Day parties or you’re having a cozy night at home; these recipes are fun, colorful, and sure to please!
First up is my Cinnamon Candied Popcorn. Let me warn you, this stuff is extremely addictive! Microwavable popcorn gets coated in melted red hots and white chocolate. It’s a sweet and salty combination no one can resist, plus, it just looks so festive! It is the perfect snack to make in a snap and package up for your children’s classmates. It would also work for a movie date, at home. Fun treats like this make a night at home with your sweetheart just a little more special.
Cinnamon Candied Popcorn
makes 6-8 servings
- 2 bags microwavable “light” popcorn, popped
- 3/4 cup red hot candies
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon shortening
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
Pop the popcorn according to the package directions, and then spread it onto two large baking sheets.
In a medium saucepan, bring the red hot candies and the water to a simmer over medium heat, stirring often. Allow the candies to fully melt into the water; this will take about 15 minutes.
Immediately pour the melted candy mixture all over the popcorn. Toss the popcorn around until it is all well coated, and place it in the oven for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile melt the white chocolate and shortening in a saucepan over medium low heat or in the microwave in 30 second intervals. If the chocolate gets thick or clumpy, add a little more shortening to smooth it out.
Pour the melted chocolate over the candied popcorn, and toss it around once again. Allow the popcorn to cool and the chocolate to harden on the baking sheets, and then place it in large zip top bags to store.
Now to wash it all down, you have got to try my Creamy Red Hot Chocolate. Talk about a sweet drink to warm to you up from the inside.
