We love popcorn at our house! Usually its just air popped with salt and butter, but this one is for special occasions. Like when you need to use up the leftover candy canes that have been sitting in your cupboard for who knows how long! ( Actually, I made this recipe in January or February, but who knows, maybe someone else still has candy canes sitting around?) This is SUPER delicious. Next Christmas I am buying a pack of candy canes especially for this!
White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn
16 oz. white chocolate (can use white chocolate baking morsels) or almond bark
1 cup finely crushed (like sand) peppermints (about 10-12 candy canes or 40 mints) I crushed my peppermints in my food processor.
4 quarts popped popcorn (about 1/2 cup corn kernels) I used this to pop my corn, so it had salt. If you are using air popped corn, throw in a pinch of salt when you sprinkle in the crushed peppermints.
Slowly melt white chocolate or almond bark in the microwave or on stove-top with double boiler. Stir often to keep chocolate from burning. Stir 1/2 cup crushed peppermints into the white chocolate. Place popped corn into a large bowl. Pour melted white chocolate and peppermint mixture over the popcorn. Gently stir to coat popcorn while sprinkling remaining crushed peppermints over the popcorn.
Pour out onto parchment paper and allow coating to harden.
