Spend some time with your kids before your Valentine date with a mini date together at home.

At our house, we exchange little gifts and enjoy a heart-shaped pizza for dinner. Followed by a movie of the kids’ choice and this fun snack!

Here’s what we use:

  • Popcorn
  • Candy Melts (2 Colors)
  • Valentine M&M’s
  • Sprinkles


Start by melting your chocolate. While it’s heating, lay your popcorn out on parchment paper.


Drizzle the chocolate to cover the popcorn. The key is to sprinkle all of your toppings on before the chocolate hardens. This is a great way for your kids to help, and get messy! Feel free to add any other toppings of your liking.

Once the popcorn is all coated with goodies, allow it time to cool before serving. For added fun, I served the popcorn in a heart-shaped bowl and served beverages in these cute conversation heart cups! (both from Target)


If you’re looking for more to do with the kids, check out this edible game of tic tac toe that doubles as an activity and snack!
