I have seen a few of these snack mix variations floating around and thought I’d give it a try! If all I need to use is the microwave I’m all for it! 🙌🏼
I had an idea of what I what ingredients I wanted, but I went to Target with an open mind. This is what I ended up with plus some vegetable oil not pictured
I grabbed these super cute goodie bags, so I could put the finished mix inside to include in the kids Valentines basket! 😍
The first thing I did was warm up about 1 cup of the semi sweet dark chocolate chips in the microwave. It took about a total of 2 minutes, and I stirred in a tablespoon of vegetable oil so it would be a good consistency for drizzling. Of course you can use white chocolate or even the colorful chocolate melts, but Dark chocolate has my heart!
Use a fork to drizzle a layer of chocolate down on your pan, best to use parchment paper or foil for less mess. Then pour your popcorn down in an even layer, pressing lightly to make sure the chocolate sticks.
I’d suggest using already popped, lightly salted popcorn as it might keep longer. I did pop my own, and it was buttered. 🤷🏼♀️ Still turned out great, so your choice.
I added the colorful mini marshmallows next and did my final layer of chocolate drizzle. Immediately throw those beautiful Valentines themed sprinkles all over! ✨
I decided to wait until after the drizzle to add my m&m’s and yogurt covered raisins, so the drizzle would have a good chance of covering the popcorn.
Once the chocolate is completely dry you can scoop up the mix and separate into goodie bags or a big bowl for the family! 🙂

I hope you are excited to make your own and come back and let me know what you think! 🙂 What would you add to the mix?
