White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn

White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn

White chocolate and peppermint.

A match made in heaven.

I would love to paint a beautiful holiday picture in your head and tell you that I made this recipe last night and Ryan and I cozied up on the couch together in front of the fire to enjoy it while watching A Charlie Brown Christmas.

But that would be a lie.

First, during round one of this recipe, I burnt the popcorn

Second, we don’t have a fireplace.

And third, while we did eat it together on the couch, our movie of choice had a little less Snoopy and a lot more wolf pack (umm, The Hangover).

Ingredients

  • 1 100 calorie-size bag butter popcorn
  • 3 ounces white chocolate (I used Baker’s white chocolate baking blocks)
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 5 peppermint candies or one candy cane (plus more for garnish, if desired)
