Peppermint Popcorn Bark
(Printable Recipe)

2 bags microwave popcorn, popped (18-20 cups)
1 6oz box candy canes, crushed
1 package Almond Bark (or 2 packages of those microwave ready white / vanilla chocolate cups)
1 tsp peppermint extract or a few drops of peppermint oil

Place popcorn in a very large bowl - the biggest one you have.  Pour crushed candy canes on top of the popcorn.  (I crush my candy canes in the food processor - it is quick and it pulverizes the candy canes!)  Melt almond bark according to instructions on the package.   Add the peppermint extract or oil to the almond bark and pour over popcorn.  Stir until all the popcorn is coated.  Pour popcorn on wax paper and allow to harden.  Once the popcorn has hardened, break into pieces and enjoy!


 

 

Mint Chocolate Candy Cane Popcorn
2 bags microwave popcorn, popped
1 6oz box of mint chocolate candy canes, crushed
melted chocolate (as much chocolate as you want - I used two of those microwave ready chocolate dipping sauce and poured it over)

Place popcorn in a very large bowl - the biggest one you have.  Pour crushed candy canes on top of the popcorn.  (I crush my candy canes in the food processor - it is quick and it pulverizes the candy canes!)  Melt chocolate according to instructions on the package.   Pour chocolate over popcorn. Stir until all the popcorn is coated.  Pour popcorn on wax paper and allow to harden.  Once the popcorn has hardened, break into pieces and enjoy!




Peppermint Cookies & Cream Popcorn

 

(Printable Recipe)

2 bags microwave popcorn, popped

1 (6oz) box candy canes, crushed

1 pack Oreo cookies, crushed

1 1/2 packs Almond Bark (or 2 packages of those microwave ready white / vanilla chocolate cups)

1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract or a few drops of peppermint oil

Place popcorn in a very large bowl - the biggest one you have. Pour crushed candy canes and Oroes on top of the popcorn. (I crush my candy canes and Oreos in the food processor) Melt one pack of almond bark according to instructions on the package. Add the peppermint extract or oil to the almond bark and pour over popcorn. Stir. The Oreos will absorb some of the almond bark and the popcorn won't be fully coated.  Melt the remaining almond bark and pour over popcorn.  Stir until popcorn is coated.  Pour popcorn on wax paper and allow to harden. Once the popcorn has hardened, break into pieces and enjoy!
