Cherry Love Popcorn & January's Funny Food Blogger Posts

Here's the first Valentine's day post of the year. This colorful cherry popcorn was a breeze to make.

I popped about 1/3 cup of popcorn (in oil) and then spread it out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

For the flavor I melted cherry flavored chips and some additional pink candy melts for color.

Then drizzled the two colors over the popcorn.

Then I gather up Valentine's Day sugar decoration. Red and pink non-pareils, hearts, lips and XOs.

And sprinkled them over the popcorn while the chips and melts were still wet.

When everything hardend. Break up into pieces, place in a bowl and serve.

A crunchy, sugary, cherry pink and red Valentine's Day snack.

Here are the food blog posts that I fond particularly amusing this month:
