    • Peppermint Bark Popcorn

      Peppermint Popcorn Bark A taste of the holidays like never before! This tantalizingly sweet treat makes a lovely gift, if you keep your hands off it long enough to give some away!

      popcorn bark ingredientsYou'll need:
      1 pkg White Chocolate Chips (12 oz)
      3/4 tsp peppermint extract
      12-14 c. Air Popped Popcorn (about 2 bags of microwave popcorn)
      4 Candy Canes, pulverized

      Crush the candy canes into fairly small particles, set aside in a small bowl. Spread the popcorn out in a large pan. In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips (about 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave), be careful not to overheat the chocolate! Add the peppermint extract to the melted chocolate, mixing well.


      Sprinkle the crushed peppermint sticks over the popped popcorn.
