White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn

whitechocolatepeppermintpopcornIt’s almost the big day…Christmas! This is a great treat to have around the house for your family or friends.

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups un-buttered popped popcorn
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 {8 ounce} bars of White Chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Ground Candy Canes

Directions:

  1. For the candy canes: Add 12 canes into food processor and process them until they are a fine dust. You only need 1/4 cup so unless you have other uses for the candy cane dust then you can scale it down a bit.
  2. For the popcorn: Start with 6 cups of non-buttered popcorn.
  3. In an extra large mixing bowl add the popcorn, sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt and toss.
  4. Add the chopped chocolate into a microwave safe measuring cup and heat slowly until melted and smooth, about 45 seconds to a minute depending.
  5. Pour the melted white chocolate over the popcorn and toss it around until the popcorn is evenly coated.
  6. Sprinkle with a quarter cup of candy cane dust and mix some more.
  7. Spread the popcorn on a lined baking sheet and let the chocolate set up.
  8. Store in an air-tight container for 2-3 days.

Tips:

  • Also try drizzling the popcorn with melted chocolate!
