Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup jumbo popcorn kernels
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate melting wafers (I used Ghirardelli)
  • 1/2 cup peppermint white chocolate baking chunks (I used Ghirardelli)
  • 3 tbsp candy canes crushed
  • 2 tsp festive sprinkles
  • 1/4 tsp kosher sea salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate melts optional

Instructions

  • Using a popcorn maker or a large pot on the stovetop, pop kernels, set aside.
  • Melt white chocolate melts and peppermint baking chunks over a double boiler or in the microwave. Drizzle over popcorn, stirring constantly to prevent the popcorn from becoming soggy.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, wax paper or a silicone baking mat. Pour popcorn over top and spread into an even layer. Sprinkle with candy canes, sprinkles and sea salt.
  • Melt dark chocolate melts over a double boiler or in the microwave. Drizzle over top if desired.
  • Place popcorn in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to allow chocolate to harden. Remove and break into pieces.

Notes

- You can buy pre-crushed candy canes during the holidays. I use them in all of my Christmas baking/candy making. They're all the same size and they don't stick together as much as when you crush them at home.
- I purchased my mushroom popcorn online, but I've seen jumbo popcorn (Popsecret?) at local grocery stores and Target.
- Do not use popcorn with butter or salt.
