For the Popcorn:

2. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted.

 

3. Remove the pot from the heat and add the popcorn. Mix it through gently.

6. Add a drop of pastel pink food colouring to ¾ of the melted chocolate.

 

7. Dip the balls into the pink chocolate and coat well. Place on a wire rack that is placed over a baking tray. 

 

8. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until set.

 

9. Drizzle the leftover melted white chocolate over the pink popcorn balls and briefly return to the fridge.

 

10. Decorate with a dusting of glitter, serve and enjoy!
