2 bags popped popcorn (natural or unbuttered works best)
1 pound almond bark
1 cup crushed candy canes
1/4 teaspoon peppermint oil or 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
3/4 cups semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
*Place popcorn in a very large mixing bowl
*Melt almond bark according to package. When completely melted, add extract or peppermint oil. Stir quickly, the almond bark can get a little lumpy.
*Pour melted almond bark mixture over popcorn and pour crushed candy canes on top. Stir evenly. Pour popcorn onto waxed or parchment paper.
*Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over popcorn mixture. Let mixture dry completely until chocolate and almond bark are hardened. (You can place in the refrigerator to speed up the process).
*When chocolate is hardened, use your hands to break up popcorn into chunks.
Add to a jar or cute package to gift to your friends and neighbors…if you don’t eat it all yourself!
