Where to find ingredients for Valentine's Day Chocolate M&M Popcorn
- I found the Valentine colored M&M's at the grocery store in their holiday aisle, but you could really use any for this recipe. I like the pink, red, and white mix to keep with the Valentine's theme, but you don't need to get too caught up on that if you can't find them.
- As for the chocolate, I just used candy melts from Hobby Lobby, but I think they also carry them at craft stores and probably even big box stores like Walmart. You can also make your life easier by just ordering them off Amazon!
- I used kettle corn popcorn, which you can find in any grocery store. You can also use this Homemade Kettle Corn Recipe!
Why Valentine's Day Chocolate M&M Popcorn tastes so good:
- The trick to this recipe is to use KETTLE CORN! It really adds a nice touch to the flavor combination, so trust me on this one.
- The sweet and salty combo pairs perfectly with the chocolate and M&M's.
- I've made this popcorn countless times using kettle corn, and people always ask me for the recipe; they can never believe how simple it is either. Check out the easy how-to video below for proof.
