If you’re like me, Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn may initially sound a little odd to you. Then you taste it and you can never turn back… every Christmas will demand this decadent treat.

Chocolate peppermint popcorn?! Trust me, it's delicious and a must-have Christmas treat! Click To Tweet

White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn - this is ADDICTIVE! Popcorn is coated with white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy canes. A fabulous Christmas treat!

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

Ingredients

  • 1 box (6 oz) of Baker's white chocolate

  • 1 box (10) peppermint candy canes

  • 16 cups popped white popcorn

Instructions

  • 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!
