1 16 oz bag of white chocolate chips
3-4 candy canes finely crushed
10-12 cups popped popcorn
1 teaspoon vegetable or canola oil
1. Pop the popcorn and lay out on wax paper on the counter top.
2. Crush the candy canes finely. I used a food processor for this.
3. In a medium size microwave safe container, add the white chocolate chips and the 1 teaspoon of oil. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each 30 seconds, until the chocolate is smooth and ready to drizzle. Add half of your crushed candy canes to the melted chocolate and drizzle over the popcorn. Use the remaining crushed candy canes to dust extra peppermint flavor over the popcorn.
4. Let it “dry” on the counter 2-4 hours before serving.
