I got the wonderful idea for this recipe when I was at a friend’s house recently for a baby shower. It’s so simple, yet turns popcorn into an extra special treat.
White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn
16 cups popped popcorn (about 1 cup kernels)
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1 cup white chocolate (this works great)
1 Tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
Stir melted coconut oil into the popped popcorn and sprinkle with salt according to your taste. Pour prepared popcorn onto two cookie sheets or two 9×13 inch pans. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, melt white chocolate and butter together until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in peppermint extract.
Drizzle melted chocolate over the popcorn and stir immediately to coat. Allow chocolate to harden on the popcorn for 30 minutes to an hour. Or just start eating it right away because it’s too hard to wait.
You might think I’m on a bit of a peppermint kick since I’m posting this recipe right after the Peppermint Cream Cocoa recipe. What can I say? I think of peppermint when I think of Christmas.
If peppermint isn’t your thing, you can definitely skip the peppermint extract in this recipe and just enjoy yourself some White Chocolate Popcorn.
What do you think? With peppermint or without?
