Peppermint Bark Popcorn

Peppermint Bark Popcorn-Plain popcorn, white chocolate, milk chocolate and peppermint baking pieces come together for an addicting Christmastime recipe.

Peppermint Bark Popcorn

If you see me this Holiday season I will probably have a bowl of this peppermint bark popcorn by my side.

It’s my new favorite snack. It’s also very addicting.

I’ve always enjoyed snacking on popcorn and I am a fan of peppermint so I’ve combined the two and the results are de-li-cious!

Popped Plain Popcorn

I use my air popper to pop plain popcorn kernels, but you could also use the microwavable popcorn. Make sure it’s plain.

The recipe calls for 8 cups of popped popcorn.

Plan on using about 6 tablespoons of unpopped kernels if you’re using a popcorn maker.

This recipe yields the perfect amount but if you want to package it for gifts then just double the recipe or make it in batches.

Milk chocolate and white chocolate drizzle

 

 I’ve already gotten requests from people saying that this is all they want for Christmas from me is a package of this peppermint bark popcorn.

I really love making my own peppermint bark and this just brings it to a whole new level.

It’s like WHOOOAAA!

You can use candy canes for your peppermint pieces, but I used the Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Pieces that are located in the baking aisle.

They have a softer texture to them and I think it makes eating a handful of this popcorn a lot easier.
