1 3.2ozbag of microwave popcorn
1/2cupwhite chocolate chips
Pink food coloring for candy
Pop the popcorn in the microwave and remove any unpopped kernels by making a very small opening in the top of the bag, holding it upside down, and shaking until the unpopped kernels fall out.
Add popcorn to a bowl and melt chocolate in a microwave-safe container for 60 seconds, stirring after 30 seconds, and then stirring after 10 seconds until completely melted. Be careful not to overheat and seize the chocolate.
Add food color to the white chocolate until it reaches your desired shade of pink and pour over the popcorn while it's still warm. Gently fold the chocolate into the popcorn until it's evenly coated, being careful not to break popcorn.
Spread popcorn in an even layer on a piece of parchment paper, sprinkle with conversation hearts and M&Ms and allow to set for at least one hour.
Separate if necessary and store in an airtight container or bag it up and give it to friends and neighbors!
