Valentines Day Sweet Treats

Happy Valentines Day!

A cute little bit of funky treat making… fun to make and great to give as valentine gifts! ♥

Little note of caution – this recipe does require a lot of adult help 😉

Ingredients 

7 Cups of popped popcorn
3 Cups mini marshmallows
8 Lollipops
2 Tablespoons butter
Red food coloring
Red cupcake holders
Candy for sprinkling – think hundreds and thousands etc!

Pink Popcorn Pops

How We Made It

  1. Butter a bowl and place popcorn into it
  2. Melt the marshmallows and butter over a low heat on the cooker, stir continuously until completely melted
  3. Add a few drops of red food coloring into the marshmallow to create a deep pink/red color
  4. Pour melted marshmallows into popcorn bowl and stir
  5. Allow to cool before doing this next bit!  Get your little one to butter his/her hands (this is allow them to “mold” the popcorn/marshmallow mixture to the lollipop with ease!)
  6. Take a handful of popcorn and mold it to the lollipop so that it forms a ball and the lollipop is completely covered
  7. Take your cupcake and push it onto the stick of the lollipop – this forms a “plate” or holder for your popcorn covered lollipop
  8. Lastly sprinkle with candy; hearts, fairy dust, hundred and thousands etc!

Pink Popcorn Pops

Give to your valentine 😀 ♥
