We've been making this and that for valentine's day this week: some hearts, some secret grandparent gifts, and some popcorn.
This popcorn falls under the category, "ridiculous things pinterest makes me do." Also in the category are watermelon stars and temporary tattoos on bananas. Party popcorn--awesome name by the way--is melted white chocolate poured over popcorn and then covered in sprinkles. I added a little crunchy salt too, because it's aways delicious.
My children were so unbelievably excited about making this and said many times, "this is the best thing you have ever made, ever." I'm not a fan of popcorn or white chocolate, so I'm not the best judge, but I believe them. You can't really go wrong when you pouring chocolate on something. I found a few--printable!--pop-corny puns thanks again to pinterest. A few staples later, Bob's your uncle, and you've got 18 valentines ready to go!
Did you already do your valentines? Or are you a last minute scrambler? I've got a tutorial for a super quick Me Hearty Eye Patch, if you are still searching for ideas. There are so many good ones out there. Got any favorites?
