Pink popcorn. Yep, it contains chocolate. Who else loves a sweet and salty combination? The first time I made this, I immediately thought it would be an adorable Valentine's Day treat. I reached out to my talented friend and graphic designer Anne Hitchins to create a sweet little Valentine to accompany my pink chocolate popcorn and she did not disappoint! How fun would it be to hand these out to all your favorite friends, teachers and kiddos? The recipe is super easy but definitely takes plain old popcorn to the the next level. In the meantime, hop over to Anne's website and check out her adorable holiday collection for Valentine's Day. There's a ton of other goodies on her site too!
