What You’ll Need

+ 8 Cups of Popped Popcorn +

+ 3 tbsp. Butter (Sweet Cream, Salted) +

+ 3 cups Mini Marshmallows +

+ Valentine’s Mix M&M’s +

+ Valentine’s Day Sprinkle Mix +

+ Confetti Hearts Sprinkles +


1. Pop 8 cups of popcorn and remove all of the un-popped kernels. Salt it liberally and set aside.

2. Add 3 tablespoons of butter to a medium saucepan. Melt the butter on medium heat, stirring occasionally until the butter is completely melted.

3. Add 3 cups of mini marshmallows to the melted butter.
Stir until the marshmallows are covered in the butter, and then continue to stir until the marshmallows are completely melted.

4. Take the marshmallow mixture off of the heat as soon as the last marshmallow has melted. Stir well.
5. Slowly pour about a third of the marshmallow mixture over the salted popcorn.

6. Gently fold the marshmallow mixture into the popcorn. Continue to add the marshmallow mixture a bit at a time, stirring between each addition. The popcorn should be covered in the warm marshmallow mixture.

7. Now pour the popcorn onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Use a spatula to even the popcorn out on the cookie sheet.
8. Once the popcorn is covered in marshmallow mixture it is time to add the candy. Don’t wait too long, you want the marshmallow mixture to be warm and sticky so the candy and sprinkles will stick to it. Sprinkle the candy onto the popcorn.

9. Allow the Sweetheart Popcorn to cool. Break apart and serve.

+ 2 cups ricotta cheese +

+ 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, plus extra for dusting +

+ 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, divided +

+ 1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract +

Instructions To Make The Filling

  1. Place the ricotta cheese into a fine mesh strainer and place it in the fridge to drain for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours. If you skip this step, your filling will be extremely runny.

2. In a large bowl combine the drained ricotta cheese, confectioners’ sugar, mini chocolate chips, vanilla extract, and mix well.

3. Using a spatula, carefully scrape the mixture into pastry bag fitted with a 1/2 inch open tip. Use at once, or refrigerate until needed; filling can be made up to 24 hours in advance.

4. When ready to serve, pipe the filling into one end of cannoli shell, filling shell halfway, then pipe into other end. If you don’t have a piping bag, you may spoon the filling into the shells. Repeat with remaining shells.

These are delicious and would be fun on a dessert table! My Amazon Valentine’s Day list and my full Amazon storefront here:  so many great gift ideas to check out!
