A few years ago, one of my coworkers brought this in as a goodie for the staff. I looked at it with skepticism. Peppermint on popcorn did not appeal to me but out of courtesy I tried it and proceeded to consume the remainder of the bowl (I ate lots and had no guilt about my gluttony). So then I asked her how she made it… her response, “a box of melted white chocolate, a box of candy canes and lots of popcorn”.

Several years later, I have perfected this chocolate peppermint popcorn recipe (measurements and all) and I am going to share it here with you today.

Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn Recipe

Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn Recipe


  • 1 box (6 oz) of Baker's white chocolate
  • 1 box (10) peppermint candy canes
  • 16 cups popped white popcorn


  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Peel the plastic off of your 10 candy canes and place them in a plastic zippered kitchen bag.
  • Seal the plastic zippered bag and place in another bag. Smash the candy canes with a hammer. If you think you've smashed them enough, smash them some more.
  • Pop your popcorn and set aside in a large bowl.
  • Melt 6 oz of white chocolate in a double boiler.
  • Pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn. Gently mix to thoroughly cover the popcorn.
  • Sprinkle crushed candy canes over the popcorn and mix well. (I like to sprinkle the crushed candy cane through a sieve so there's no large hunks of peppermint on the popcorn).
  • Spread out on prepared cookie sheet and let cool.
  • Enjoy!

That’s it! Simple, delicious, and highly addictive!
