Peppermint bark popcorn
Peppermint bark popcorn -an easy and delicious treat for the holidays!
One of my families favorite traditions is making popcorn and having a movie night. We LOVE any kind of popcorn! We end up doing this at least twice a month. There is so many fun variations you can make with popcorn, like my favorite marshmallow caramel popcorn, cake batter popcorn and cookie butter popcorn. Today’s chocolate peppermint bark popcorn is a new favorite holiday treat. I absolutely love peppermint bark, so this treat marries two of my favorites together into one amazing treat.
It also makes a great gift and is so cute all packaged up. This stuff is seriously addicting, so I had to get it out of my house quick before I ate the whole batch. It is THAT good!
Peppermint bark popcorn
- 10-12 cups popped popcorn (I used skinny pop)
- 1 package candiquik (or 1 1/2 cup white chocolate)
- 1/2 cup crushed peppermint kissesor andes peppermint crunch , divided
- 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips or melting candy
- 2 crushed candy canes
Pour the popcorn into a large bowl. Place the white chocolate in the microwave on medium power for 1 minute. Stir and then add additional heating time in 30-second increments, stirring each time, until it is melted. Pour onto popcorn and add in the crushed peppermint. Stir all together and then pour over wax paper. Melt the milk chocolate chips in the microwave on medium power for 1 minute. Stir and then add additional heating time in 30-second increments, stirring each time, until it is melted. Drizzle over the popcorn. Sprinkle the crushed candy canes over the top. Allow to cool until the candy coating has hardened then break into pieces before packaging. Enjoy!
This recipe came from my friend Ashton’s (from Something Swanky) new book Party Popcorn. I adapted it slightly with what I had on hand. This book is filled with 75 creative recipes for everyone’s favorite snack. Seriously one of my new favorite books and I cannot wait to try every single recipe in the book. It will definitely come in handy for our movie nights. Definitely put it on your Christmas list… you can buy it HERE. Would also make a great gift with some of this peppermint bark popcorn. ;)
Here’s a cute way to package up the peppermint bark popcorn and hand it out to friends and neighbors. Just place it in a clear bag and tie on with ribbon and a Christmas tag. Cute, easy and inexpensive!
