Popcorn is a popular treat during the holidays.
It’s one of the easiest edible gifts to whip up and give to neighbors and friends. But seriously, I could make a batch of this Peppermint Popcorn Mix and eat it all by myself.
It’s filled with delicious things like Candy Cane Kisses, Peppermint Oreos, fluffy marshmallows and it’s covered in a peppermint flavored white chocolate.
In order to flavor the white chocolate with peppermint, I used Peppermint Oil. The oil is much more potent than an extract, so you don’t need as much. It also mixes very well with the chocolate, to create a silky texture. You can find flavored oils in the cake decorating section of Walmart or most craft stores.
Once it’s all mixed up, spread it out to cool on some wax paper. You can drizzle some dark chocolate all over because… well, it’s the Holidays, and a little more chocolate never hurt anything. 😉
This refreshing little treat didn’t hang around our house for very long. It disappeared as quickly as it was made.
Darn… looks like I’ll have to make another batch! 😉
