Cupid’s Crunch Popcorn Mix

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.  Whether you have a fun date night planned or a night in with the girls, there are so many fun treats and snacks to make and enjoy!  One of the easiest and most festive recipes that I stumbled upon is called Cupid’s Crunch popcorn mix.  If you want to make a yummy treat for you to enjoy this holiday, I recommend this one! 🙂

First comes first, you’ll need a few ingredients: 2 bags of microwave popcorn, 2 cups of pretzels, 1 ½ cups of M&M’s, a 12-oz. bag of pink Wilton candy melts, and other festive decorations such as sprinkles and heart shaped candies.  Chelsea Crockett - Cupid Crunch Popcorn MixNext comes the fun part!  Follow the instructions and pop the two bags of popcorn.  Pick out any unpopped kernels so you don’t bite into them later on!  Then, take the candy melts and place them in a microwaveable bowl (you may have to do this in shifts!).  Microwave them until all of your candies are melted.  Before pouring in your melted candies, crunch up the pretzels into pieces and pour them into a bowl with the popcorn and M&M’s.  Then, pour in half of your melted candies.  Using a rubber spatula, stir the mixture together and pour it onto a piece of wax paper.  Finish it off by pouring the rest of the melted candies on top!  Sprinkle on any extra heart candies or sprinkles that you have.  Let it sit until it dries then break it up into smaller pieces.  That’s all there is to it!       

How yummy is that?  Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think!

XOXO – Chelsea

Celebrating Christmas in college may seem different because you are older, and you may be away from home. Just because it is different doesn’t mean it has to be any less spectacular! You may be neck-deep in homework, but there is always room for Christmas cheer. Here is how to pump up the Christmas spirit when you are in college.

  1. Get a small cute tree for your dorm room that has cute twinkly lights.
  2. Speaking of twinkly lights — put them everywhere! Hang them from the ceiling, the walls, around the windows, anywhere that you think needs a little Christmas cheer.
  3. Write a Christmas list. Your parents are probably wondering what you are wanting for Christmas, so make it easy on them.6a015431fc4e55970c01b8d0a53e4a970c
  4. Find out if your campus is holding any Christmas-themed events, and go to them! Is there caroling going on in the dorms? Go to it! Gingerbread house decorating contest? Go! Secret Santa? Do it!
  5. Decorate stockings with your roommates. And while you’re doing it, watch Elf.
  6. Go ice skating, visit a Christmas tree farm, go to a local church’s Christmas production, and find other fun local Christmas events in your area.
  7. Bake Christmas cookies and deliver them to everyone in your hall.
  8. Listen to Christmas music while you study.
  9. Take “family Christmas pictures” with your friends. So funny.
