  • large bowl
  • Double Boiler if melting chocolate on stovetop


  • 16 oz. white chocolate can use white chocolate baking morsels or almond bark
  • 12 candy canes finely crush like sand (about 10-12 candy canes or 40 mints = 1 cup) I crush my peppermints in my food processor. The mints will scratch the plastic.
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels 4 quarts popped


  • Pop popcorn. 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.


You can even drizzle with chocolate.
