White Chocolate & Peppermint Popcorn

popcorn

Do not let the sound of white chocolate peppermint popcorn deter you, for I’m confident that it might just be the best thing you’ll ingest all season. It legitimately looks and tastes like Christmas in the very best way and would make the perfect little gift to hand out this to loved ones in the coming days.

I originally enjoyed a handful (give or take) of a grocery-store version at a holiday party a few weeks ago and haven’t been able to get it out of my mind since. At the time, I made sure to indulge in more than my fair share (for research purposes of course) knowing full well my plans to recreate the dish at home.

Just before embarking on our Christmas baking last weekend, I whipped up a batch (using the recipe below) for the girls to enjoy throughout the day. I won’t even begin to tell you how quickly it disappeared, which is generally a pretty good sign. As it turns out, I’m  not the only one enamored with this delectable combination. It’s a hit, I promise you that.

Recipe below

::what you’ll need::

.1/4 cup popcorn kernels (+/- 5 cups once popped)
.1/2 cup good quality white chocolate
.6 candy canes full sized candy canes (12-15 miniature ones)
.sea salt, to taste

::what you’ll do::
.pop your popcorn according to the directions on its package
.using a double boiler, melt the white chocolate stirring occasionally until smooth
.in the meantime, pop the candy canes into a blender/food processor and blend until finely crushed
.place the popcorn, melted chocolate, crushed candy canes and sea salt  in a large bowl and mix to coat
.spread mixture onto a baking sheet and pop in the fridge until the coating hardens
.once hard (15-20 mins or so), break apart and enjoy!

 

Note: mixture will keep in an air tight container for up to a week. This recipe is NOT finicky – you can adjust the ingredients to your liking.

      that’s what I thought – but when I mentioned it at our holiday baking day I got a lot of weird looks. They quickly apologized for the judgement though afterwards haha
