White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn

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 PopcornYum

16 cups popped popcorn (about 1 cup kernels)
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
sea salt
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.

White Chocolate Popcorn

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?

    Laura, this sounds so good. I’ve had the popcorn with white chocolate, which is delicious, but it sounds so good with the peppermint. I’ll have to try both.

    I’ve never heard of such a treat! Sounds wonderful!! Since having to be gluten free, I miss white chocolate covered pretzels. This just might fill that void. :)

    Yum! I haven’t had chocolate popcorn but this sounds really interesting. I wish I had some white chocolate to try it.

    Will have to try a batch of both to decide. Thank you for the great idea and recipe. Have a wonderful Christmas at home!
