Doesn't Monday seem to creep up rather quickly?
I feel like it was just Friday!
Weekends seem to fly by!
So, when Mondays roll up, I get the Monday Morning Blues. Sometimes I just want to stay under the covers and wait until it is Tuesday. Then I'd be ready to start the week. Well, if you have a case of the Monday Morning Blues, check out this snack mix. It'll not only snap you out of a Monday Morning fog, but it will be a fun snack for Valentine's Day!
Strawberry Popcorn Snack Mix is filled with strawberry flavored popcorn, dried strawberries, peanut m&ms and white chocolate chips. There's a little bit of sweet, a little bit of salty and a little bit of tart in each and every bite!
1/4 cup unsalted butter
3 Tbsp light corn syrup
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 packet strawberry gelatin
1 8 ounce bag of popped, plain popcorn
1 1ounce package freeze dried strawberries
1 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1 package (11.4 oz) Valentine color m&ms
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a shallow baking dish with parchment paper. Spread out popcorn in shallow baking dish. In a small saucepan, heat unsalted butter and corn syrup over medium high heat. Add the brown sugar and strawberry gelatin. Stir until combined. Heat for an additional 3-4 minutes. Pour over the popcorn. Toss to coat popcorn. Place in 300 degree oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool and break into pieces. In a large bowl, combine the strawberry popcorn, dried strawberries, white chocolate chips and Valentine colored m&ms. Store in an airtight container for 7-10 days.
