Today’s treat is a little salty, a little sweet and a whole lot festive! This new twist on the holiday classic got the EmJoyable stamp of approval. I told my momthat I would be making a big batch of this to bring to family Christmas. Now all I have to do is find a festive holiday tin to serve it in! I hope you like it!
Peppermint Bark Popcorn
1 package microwave popcorn (avoid anything with a lot of butter so it looks white not yellow)
1/2 lb white almond bark (6 squares)
6 candy canes, crushed
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used milk, but I wish I used dark.)
Pop the popcorn and place in a large mixing bowl.
Melt almond bark according to package instructions. Pour melted almond bark mixture over popcorn and pour crushed candy canes on top.
Stir to evenly coat. Pour popcorn out onto waxed paper and spread out.
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.
When chocolate is hardened, use your hands to break up popcorn into chunks. Enjoy!
