Chocolate Cherry Popcorn {Quick & Easy!}


Need a quick and easy Valentine recipe? This Chocolate Cherry Popcorn is the perfect treat for your upcoming Valentine's Day parties AND it would be great as a sweet gift for that sweet person in your life.

Best part? You can make it in about 5 minutes!

(my kind of recipe!)

This recipe is made with the special edition cherry M&M's. Have you seen them?? To me, nothing says Valentine's Day like cherry and chocolate and these M&M's are delicious! Of course, if cherry isn't your thing, this recipe can be made with any flavor M&M's and for any holiday or occasion. Serve them up in pretty cupcake liners for easy-peasy party presentation!

Chocolate Cherry Popcorn

(Printable recipe here)
12 C. Popped Popcorn
3/4 C. Chocolate Chips
3/4 C. Cherry Chocolate M&M's (divided in two)

Place chocolate chips and 1/2 C. of the M&M's in a large, microwaveable glass bowl (that can accommodate at least 9 cups). Melt the chips in 20 second intervals, stirring between cycles. Gently mash M&M's as you stir. When chocolate is melted and M&M's are broken up, stir in popped popcorn. Stir until popcorn is evenly coated in chocolate. Immediately stir in remaining M&M's. Let cool before placing in cupcake liners.

Serve immediately or store in an airtight container.


I hope you enjoy this yummy treat!
