vanilla-flavored confectioners' coating, or as needed
peppermint candy canes, crushed
I've made this several times to share with my son's school class - the kids love this! Both candy canes as well as other various candies could be incorporated (ie M&Ms, sprinkles). It also works well using melted white chocolate chips. Dont hesitate to use microwaved popped popcorn as long as it does not have a lot of butter or salt - we make this recipe in batches of 2 - 3 bags at a time. Here's a tip to mix this MESS FREE: generously Pam spray the inside of a large paper grocery bag. Then fill with popped popcorn and pour the warm melted coating right on top (along with any other candies of choice). Close top of bag and shake vigorously. Pour the coated popcorn out onto a cookie sheet. Once cooled, break apart and portion out into cellophane or plastic baggies. Play around with colors by tinting melted white chocolate coating with food coloring then drizzling onto popcorn during the 'cooling' step mentioned above.
The only untouched dish at our holiday party. A little weird.
I would give these 10 stars if I could. I tried the almond bark stuff but it didn't melt nicely so I melted white chocolate chips...mmmmmm....
Thes receipe is awesome!! Very easy and Christmasy!! We made twenty five goody bags in less than two hours. Stick to the receipe and it works great.
This is delicious! Laura, the amount is 4 oz. for chips or chocolate or whatever you use as a coating. Other posters are saying you can use more if you want.
I made this to give to coworkers. They loved it. A bit of a mess, but worth it. I used the bagged popcorn, and Andes peppermint crunch baking chips instead. I bought the white popcorn. 3 bags of popcorn,1/2 of the 10oz bag of Andes, & 1 12oz bag of white chocolate chips. I used the paper bag method to mix, like suggested in another review. Which seemed to be an easier way to mix. I did use my hand to mix after shaking the bag. It was a big hit!!
I had to use microwave popcorn since it was all I had on had, but still turned out really good! Everyone loved it!
This is so addicting! Such a great idea for popcorn! My mom made 4 bags of popcorn with this and added in some m&m's in with it as well. So good! Crushing the candy canes real fine so that there aren't many chunks and giving it a nice subtle peppermint flavor it how I prefer it. With the popcorn and m&m's, it would also be good adding in pretzels and peanuts to make a sweet n salty mix. So good, thanks for this great recipe idea!
