Valentine’s Day, Schmalentine’s Day — it’s conversation heart season! Maybe, just mayyyyybe my favorite seasonal candy.

(Close toss-up with candy corn? Although I know both are extremely controversial.)

Psst — before you dive in, here are a few more killer Valentine’s Day ideas that I think you’ll love!

And be sure to sign up below for my VIP group, where I’ll send more of my very best ideas straight to ya.

A Sweet and Salty Valentine’s Day Snack

If you love those little conversation hearts as much as I do, I’m thinking you should probably test out this super quick Valentine’s Day snack recipe, just to be safe.

It’s the best combination of sweet and salty, which I always love. And the conversation hearts and chocolate add a pretty pop of color to your popcorn that’s a big hit with kiddos.

Let’s be honest, it’s a big hit with me, too.

This Valentine’s Day snack would be perfect for class parties, Galentine’s Day celebrations, or even making a batch and delivering to your neighbors in little individual bags.

What Type of Popcorn is Best for This Snack?

To be honest, you can use your favorite type of popcorn and just go for it!

We used plain kernels with an air popper, but you could just as easily use microwave popcorn. Or whatever your favorite might be!

I would avoid using popcorn that’s already sweetened, as the white chocolate and conversation hearts add plenty of sweetness to this Valentine’s Day snack.

Using Other Candies in This VAlentine’s Day Snack

Could you substitute other candies if you don’t love conversation hearts? Absolutely!

I would avoid any candy that has chocolate on the exterior, as it would probably get a little melty when you put the recipe together.

But candy like M&Ms, with a candy shell on the outside, would be perfect! Other ideas could be Jelly Bellies, valentine candy corn, or even sour gummies.

How to Make Conversation Heart Popcorn for Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day Snack REcipe

  1. Make your popcorn. We just use plain kernels and an air popper like this one. So simple!
  2. Spread your popcorn in a single layer on some wax paper.
  3. Melt your chocolate. Start with one cup of unmelted wafers and microwave according to the instructions. Once they’re about half melted add two drops of pink food coloring (the neon set in our ingredients list is awesome!). Melt fully and stir to mix the color.
  4. Drizzle the melted chocolate over your popcorn, and while it’s still melted, sprinkle conversation hearts over the top. You may want to individually nestle some hearts into the spots with lots of chocolate so that they stick well.
  5. Allow the chocolate to cool and harden, and eat up! You can bag it and give it to pals, or just make a big bowl for a Galentine’s Day movie marathon.

Enjoy!

So easy and SO GOOD. For bonus points you can sprinkle a little sea salt and get that extra good sweet-salty combo going on.

I accidentally maybe ate a whole bowl of this stuff while bingeing some Netflix. Enjoy! xoxo
