Peppermint Bark Popcorn

Peppermint Bark Popcorn Recipe

I enjoy coming up with new snack ideas for parties. I decided to modify my Peppermint Bark Chex Party Mix to make a Peppermint Bark Popcorn. I changed the quantities, but used a similar method. I also decided to use white chocolate on half of the popcorn and dark chocolate on the rest. This allows people to pick their favorite chocolate or combine them for a party in their mouth.

Peppermint Bark Popcorn

I used red and green striped peppermint candy canes to add a little more color to the Peppermint bark. Don’t let the number of steps mislead you. This is easy to make and comes together quickly.

We use an air popper to make our popcorn. If you use another method, use as little oil as you can get away with and do not add salt.
