CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT POPCORN
This easy peppermint popcorn is made with freshly popped popcorn that's coated in chocolate and crushed peppermints. It's like making gourmet popcorn at home!
‣ 6 cups popped popcorn, unpopped kernels removed ‣ 20 ounce candy melts, any flavor (chocolate, white chocolate, etc) ‣ 1/4 cup peppermints, crushed, divided
Place the popped popcorn in a large bowl. Melt the candy per the package instructions. Once smooth, mix in about half of the crushed peppermints.
MELT THE CANDY
Pour the melted candy over the popcorn, then use a spatula to gently toss and coat.
TOSS TO COAT
Transfer coated popcorn to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then sprinkle the remaining crushed peppermints on top. Allow peppermint popcorn to cool completely, then break apart into snack-sized pieces.
