- 1 bag (12 ounces) white chocolate chips
- 1/2 tablespoon shortening
- 5 cups popped popcorn (no butter added; just air popped)
- 1 cup small pretzel rods
- 1 and 1/2 cups Valentine's Day M&Ms
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons Valentine's Day sprinkles
Place the white chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in bursts of 20 seconds stirring in between each burst for 15 seconds until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Be patient to avoid burning the chocolate.
Place the popped popcorn on a PARCHMENT lined sheet pan and toss with the pretzel rods and Valentine's Day M&Ms. Pour the melted chocolate over it. Use a spoon to toss the popcorn gently until it is evenly coated with the chocolate. Spread the popcorn out evenly and then evenly sprinkle with the salt and valentine's day sprinkles.
Let stand for 5-10 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened. Break up into small pieces then place in the snack sized bags.
