1 cup Valentine M&Ms

  5. Clean the bowl you just used or grab a new one and set it back on top of the saucepan of simmering water. Add the remaining 3/4 white chocolate chips to the bowl and stir until melted. Add a few drops of pink food coloring and stir until color is to your liking. Remove bowl of chocolate from saucepan.
  6. Drizzle the pink melted chocolate over both sheet pans of popcorn.
  7. Sprinkle M&Ms and salt over popcorn.
