White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn
Salty, sweet and peppermint-y popcorn! A delicious festive popcorn perfect for the holidays!
- 12 whole Medium-sized Candy Canes
- 6 cups Un-popped Popcorn Kernels
- 1 pinch Flaked Sea Salt
- 2 bars (8 Oz. Size) White Chocolate, Chopped (like Ghirardelli)
For the candy canes: I added 12 candy canes into the bowl of my food processor and processed them until they were a fine dust. You only need 1/4 cup so unless you have other uses for the candy cane dust then you can scale it down a bit and start with fewer candy canes.
For the popcorn: Start with 6 cups of non-buttered popcorn. I popped mine on the stove top with coconut oil. But if you have an air popper that would work too. Pop according to your preferred method or package instructions. You’ll need 8 cups of plain popped popcorn (no butter).
In an extra large mixing bowl add the 8 cups of popped popcorn. Sprinkle with a generous pinch of flaked sea salt and toss.
Add the chopped chocolate into a microwave safe measuring cup and heat slowly (15 second increments) until melted and smooth, about 45 seconds to a minute total depending.
Pour the melted white chocolate over the popcorn and toss it around until the popcorn is evenly coated.
Sprinkle with a quarter cup of candy cane dust and mix some more.
Spread the popcorn on a lined (I used a Silpat) baking sheet and let the chocolate set up. I popped my cookie sheet in the fridge for 15 minutes before breaking it up.
Store in an air-tight container for 2-3 days, possibly longer. But it didn’t make it that far at my house!

Why I Love This White Chocolate Popcorn
While chocolate popcorn is pretty darn great as is, I wanted to give it some extra zhuzh.
And since Christmas is just around the corner, and we&rsquore spending lots of cozy nights indoors as a family, I thought I&rsquod come up with a white chocolate popcorn recipe that&rsquos perfect for Christmas.
Popcorn white chocolate is a more unique combo than milk or dark chocolate covered popcorn, and reminds me of the falling snow at this time of year.
This white chocolate popcorn recipe uses crushed up candy canes to add a bit of festive flair for the holidays.
And the marshmallows hold the whole thing together, giving it the perfect balance of sweet, sticky, crunchy, and pepperminty!
This white chocolate popcorn is the perfect treat to whip up for a Christmas Tree decorating party, family movie night, or even to take to a Christmas party.
It&rsquos also a great way to use up those leftover candy canes at the end of the festive season.
If you have candy canes left in your cupboard when Valentine&rsquos Day rolls around, this white chocolate popcorn recipe is a great way to use up those final stragglers!
This White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn is So Easy to Make
One of the things I love about fun and creative popcorn recipes is that they are easy to make!
Seriously, you can whip this up in 30 minutes total time, with minimal effort. To keep it easy, I use microwave popcorn, and melt the chocolate and marshmallows in the microwave, too.
The result is much more treat worthy than the effort involved in making it.
Outsized results for minimal effort? Melted chocolate? I&rsquom in!
Peppermint White Chocolate Popcorn is a Great Frugal Entertaining Choice
It&rsquos also a frugal choice! Some popcorn kernels, a bag of white chocolate chips, some mini marshmallows and some candy canes &ndash that&rsquos all you need!
Much cheaper than a fancier dessert, but still with some serious wow factor.
#5: It makes a package filled with minty cheer.
You could easily pop these kernels into Christmasy plastic bags or buy a few fun vessels to show them off in. Or make it easy (like I did) and use canning bottles from your stash of long gone summer pickles.

How to make white chocolate peppermint popcorn
Pop popcorn and remove kernels while placing the popped popcorn into a large mixing bowl.
Melt the chocolate or almond bark in a small bowl in the microwave in 30-second intervals stirring well between each.
Once the chocolate has been melted, stir in the crushed peppermint candies.
Toss the chocolate and peppermint into the popcorn to evenly coat.
Add the red colored sugar, mini marshmallows, and peppermint balls and toss to combine.
Give it about 5-10 minutes to set so the chocolate isn’t so messy and enjoy.
White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn
This White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn is an inexpensive gift idea for the holiday season. It also makes a great last-minute gift since it’s so quick and easy to put together.
Or maybe you would rather keep it for yourself! It makes a great winter treat for movie watching! I’d suggest serving it with a hot mug of cocoa! ?
To change things up, sometimes I drizzle melted dark chocolate over the popcorn before I add the crushed peppermint. It’s so yummy!!
How to Make Easy Peppermint Crunch Popcorn:
Ingredients: Are you ready for this? All you need is
*popcorn (popped of course)
*white chocolate candy bark or melts
*peppermint candy canes
*optional red candy melts for drizzle
Tips: If you are in a hurry, purchase a package of sea salt popcorn. If not, pop three to four bags of microwave popcorn. Be sure to use regular NOT butter flavored.
You can substitute white chocolate chips for the white chocolate candy bark or melts, but it will not coat the popcorn as well.
Step 1: Unwrap and crush candy canes. You can use a food processor or blender. If you don’t have those, place the candy canes in a plastic freezer bag, seal, and hit them with a wooden spoon. My kids love to do this and refuse to use the food processor.
Step 2: Place popped popcorn in a large bowl.
Step 3: Melt white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 45 seconds to 1 minute in microwave. Stir. If chocolate is not melted, return to microwave and melt for another 45 seconds to 1 minute.
Step 4: Pour melted white chocolate over popcorn.
Step 5: Add crushed peppermint and stir until well mixed.
Step 6: Spread the popcorn mixture evenly across a piece of waxed paper.
Step 7: Place the popcorn mixture in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes until chocolate is hardened. Remove from freezer.
Step 8: If desired, melt red candy melts (as directed above) and drizzle over popcorn mixture. Return to freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to allow drizzle to harden.
White chocolate m&m popcorn :: friday night movie snack!
friday nights at our house are usually pretty low key and are spent relaxing and spending time together as a family after a long work/school week. most weeks it involves playing outside with dad (or inside, during the winter months), making homemade pizza, and watching either a sports game or a movie on tv. i always prefer to stay at home where it’s ok to stay in my pjs and where we can choose and make our own treats for movie night. one thing both the adults *and* the kids in our family like to snack on is popcorn (who doesn’t?!), and when we’re not eating homemade caramel popcorn, or candy cane popcorn around the holidays, we like to make this white chocolate-coated smorgasbord of a popcorn bowl that has just about everything you could want to satisfy your sweet (and salty!) tooth.
it really could not be easier to make. and, you can always add more or less of any of these add-ins, or you could throw in whatever other candy you think would taste great and make you smile while you’re kicking back and enjoying your family movie night.
start with popcorn – you can air pop some popcorn kernels, or you can use a bag or two of microwave popcorn. if you use the microwave kind, just make sure it’s not the super-loaded-with-a-crazy-ton-of-drippy-butter variety. there are lots out there that are very simply and lightly salted and i think they work best for this.
the other thing you’ll need is a bag (or two – depending on how much you’re making!) of good quality white chocolate chips.
other than that, we like to add in pretzel sticks, m&ms, peanuts, and mini marshmallows.
grab the biggest bowl you’ve got and get everything in there, except for the white chocolate chips – they’ll come into play in just a second. our kids love throwing in however much they like of each add-in…that is, whatever they haven’t already eaten.
now’s the time to grab your white chocolate chips and put them in a microwave-safe bowl. the thing about melting chocolate is that if you over do it it will totally sieze up on you and you won’t be able to melt it down again at all. so when melting in the microwave i always do 30-second intervals. after each interval i stir the chocolate to see how it’s doing and to circulate it around so there aren’t any “hot spots.” if there is still a significant amount of chocolate unmelted i put it in for another 30 seconds, and so on, until there are only a few unmelted chunks left.
you can see in the picture below that there are still a few pieces of unmelted chocolate, but because the rest of the chocolate is so warm those little pieces will melt when i stir it. putting it in the microwave for any more time at this point would be a mistake!
this white chocolate is going to be the “sweet” that coats all the mostly “salty” ingredients in our popcorn bowl.
so just drizzle it on top (a glorious sight)…
and then quickly and gently stir everything together in the big bowl, adding more chocolate, as needed (or wanted!), before spreading everything into a single layer on parchment-lined baking sheets to cool and set for a little while.
and if you can refrain from eating it all before it totally sets, congratulations! if you have any left for movie night, put a whole bunch into individual bowls for everyone, get in your pjs, and curl up with a blanket for a fun family movie night!
here’s the “recipe” – if you can call it that. though like i said above, add however much of whatever you want…play with it! have fun!
White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn
The holidays are a time for family, friends, and parties. And holiday parties means delicious food. There are a lot of fun store bought treats you can bring to parties now but it’s more fun to bring a homemade treat.
The only problem with homemade treats is it’s such a busy time of the year. Over the last couple of years, I’ve been working to make the holidays less stressful and slow them down a bit. It’s still a work in progress but I’m getting there.
One thing I’ve been doing is finding ways to make fun treats with little shortcuts. I still want them to have good ingredients and be delicious but I don’t want to spend hours making them.
We often put out a bowl of popcorn when we have guests over. It’s such an easy snack that most people enjoy. It’s simple to make yourself on the stove but there are also some really good brands out there that have simple ingredients. I really like Skinny Pop and also the Target and Walgreens organic store brands are really good.
I decided this year to come up with a fun twist on our favorite party snack of popcorn for the holidays. Since peppermint is my favorite holiday flavor that had to be included so I decided on white chocolate peppermint popcorn.
White chocolate isn’t my favorite most of the time but it goes so well with peppermint. My husband likes peppermint but isn’t as obsessed as I am but he really enjoys this popcorn. I have to say it can be a bit addictive!
You can also easily half this recipe if you just want to make some for yourself. That’s what I did when making some for this post. I figured we didn’t need 10 cups of it around for just my husband and me.
You can also do a lot of fun things with this recipe. Some crushed pretzels would be delicious. Or drizzles some dark chocolate over the top, yum!
White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn
A good friend of mine owned a store that sold specialty popcorn. I loved all the popcorn there! We had some peppermint candies and thought white chocolate peppermint popcorn would be good.
The first thing we did was pulverize the candies. If this didn’t work there was no need to go any farther without rethinking the idea. We got out our Stick Hand Blender with Chopper Attachments, put the unwrapped candies inside and literally gave it a whirl. Amazingly it worked! The candies turned into a powder. Perfect! Next Christmas I am going to use up my left over candy canes using this method.
Little Chef Dad is the official popcorn popper in the house. We use this old pan (you can tell it has been used a lot!). Coat the bottom of the pan with oil and put in 3 popcorn kernals. When they pop you know the pan is hot enough to pour in the 1/2 cup and put the lid on. Shake it every 15 seconds or so just so the bottom doesn’t burn. When the popping subsides it is done. Pour the popcorn into a large bowl. It is important to sift through the popcorn and take out any unpopped kernals. You wouldn’t want to bite down on one of those, it is painful. I know from experience!
Melt 1 cup of white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Check it every 15 seconds to stir. When it is all melted take it out. You do not want to overcook white chocolate.
Pour the melted white chocolate and peppermint powder in the same bowl as the popcorn and mix quickly. Keep stirring and stirring and stirring. Eventually the chocolate and peppermint powder will be evenly distributed over all the popcorn.
I mentioned to Little Chef Dad the last time I made popcorn that I needed a bowl twice the size of the one I was using. He took that seriously…very seriously. He ordered from amazon two bowls. When the first one arrived I brought the box inside and asked, “What did you order?” He just started to laugh! I opened it and it was the biggest bowl (like this one) I had ever seen! It was 25″ across. He knew that buying it but didn’t get out a tape measure and visually see 25″. A few days later another bowl arrived, even bigger then the first. He thought he was helping out. When he tried returning the biggest bowl, return shipping was almost the same cost of the bowl so we decided to just keep it. Maybe we will bathe our new baby in it or our toddler. It is big enough for both! This is the smaller of the two bowls. He was right though, this bowl is bigger and it was a lot easier for Little Chef C to mix the popcorn in without half of the kernals escaping.
Pour the popcorn out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or wax paper to dry. We took our newly made White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn to a family gathering and it was well received. Popcorn making isn’t as hard as I once thought. It is even easy enough for Little Chefs to make…if Little Chef Dad makes the popcorn!
