Peppermint Popcorn Snowflakes

Here's the last of the Holiday snacks I made this year.  I took these to work last week and they were all gone before I turned around!

These are super easy to make and something everyone will enjoy!  They make a wonderful hostess gift all wrapped up in a cellophane bag with a pretty ribbon, or as great party snack.

Let's get to it.

You need about 6 cups of popcorn.  You can use homemade popcorn, microwaved popcorn, or store bought....kettle corn work really well too!

Take a 9-10 oz bag of white chocolate baking chips and melt them until they are smooth and shiny.  You can do this on the stove or in the microwave, stirring every 30 sec for about 1 - 1 1/2 mins.  Put the melted chocolate in a large bowl.

Then, go ahead and get out your Holiday aggressions by smashing up some peppermint candies.  I won't tell any one!  (Make sure to smash them really fine.)

Then all you do is dump the popcorn in to the bowl of white chocolate and toss really well to coat all the popcorn.  Then sprinkle the peppermint crumbles all over the popcorn, try to distribute evenly.

Dump the coated popcorn out on to a piece of wax paper to dry.  Let sit for about 30 min.

Once dry you can place in a pretty serving bowl, wrap it up for a gift, or just eat right there!  You deserve it!

See the little peppermint on the popcorn?  Maybe me it's there and it's Heaven!!!

Peppermint Popcorn Snowflakes

6 Cups popped popcorn or kettle corn
1 9 - 10 oz bag of white chocolate chips, melted
6 - 7 peppermint candies, crushed


Melt the bag of white chocolate chips and place in a large bowl for mixing.  You can do this on the stove or microwave.  If using microwave stir every 30 seconds until melted about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.  Don't over cook or the chocolate will seize up.

Crust peppermints in a plastic bag using your rolling pin. 

Place popcorn in melted chocolate and mix to coat evenly.  Sprinkle peppermint on popcorn.  Dump out on to waxed paper to dry, about 30 min.  Store in plastic bags or containers up to a week.
