Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn


I’m not the kind of guy who goes over-the-top on Valentine’s Day.

Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn to share with your S.O. - laughably easy to make!

I walk past the over-sized cards, colossal boxes of chocolates and huge heart-shaped balloons and chuckle to myself. The extravagance feels too commercial to me.

My usual V-Day gift to my S.O is a regular-sized card, a box of chocolate covered almonds (her favorite) and flowers. Sometimes the flowers are roses. More often they’re an assortment assembled for me by the friendly ladies at the local flower shop.

Melting chocolate to indulge on Valentine's Day!

But since Valentine’s Day arrives on a Saturday this year I’m thinking of taking it a step further this time. Maybe we’ll stay in, watch a movie, melt chocolate and drizzle it on each other’s…

It can't be called Valentine's Day Popcorn unless it's drizzled with melted chocolate.

…POPCORN! It’s about as “over-the-top” as I get on Valentine’s Day ; ).
