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!

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. ;)
