I originally found this recipe at www.skiptomylou.org.
White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn
-1 bag White Candy Melts (you can also use 16 oz white chocolate morsels or almond bark.
-12 Candy Canes finely crushed (or about 40 mints)
-2 packs of microwave popcorn, popped
Pop your popcorn in the microwave.
While the popcorn in popping, use a food processor to crush your candy canes into a fairly fine powder.
After the popcorn is done popping and is awaiting in a large mixing bowl, use the microwave to melt the Candy Melts. Turn the microwave on for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave for 1 minute and then stir until smooth.
Add the crushed candy cane to the white chocolate and mix well.
Pour the white chocolate/pepermint mixture over the popcorn. Gently stir to coat the popcorn.
Pour out onto wax paper. Spread it out a bit and allow the coating to harden.
After the coating has hardened, you can put it in a container of choice.
Yummy! It is a combination of butter, salt, white chocolate and peppermint. Very good but very sweet also.
Let me know if you give it a try. It is a great way to use up some leftover candy canes.
I never did try a chocolate/peanut/popcorn combo, but it still sounds like a good idea!
