    off it long enough to give some away!

    Reverse Tightwadding- What's your splurge?-peppermintpopcorn2.jpgYou'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.

    Re: Packing tip for Breakable Presents

    I love this idea, purchasing packing peanuts or bubble wrap is a waste of money and the popcorn makes a great munchie! Alternatively, I'm sure the wildlife would appreciate getting to eat it too.
