White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn

This was a serious hit with everyone! The kids loved helping make it - and it was easy and quick to whip together.  White chocolate with peppermint is a delicious combination, and adding that to the crunch of popcorn just makes it that much better!  A fun treat - one we plan to make again soon to pack into little treat baggies for Christmastime.  Enjoy!

White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn
Based off the 'Candy Cane Popcorn' recipe from the book "Popcorn" by Carol Beckerman (Yum!)
Makes 1 large tray of popcorn

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Pop 1/2 cup popcorn kernels in an air popper in a large bowl.  Scoop popcorn by hand into a fresh large bowl. (This allows any kernels or smaller pieces to get left behind.)
Fresh popcorn, ready for white chocolate and peppermint!

Melt in a microwave safe bowl at 50% power in 30 second increments, stirring regularly. You don't want to burn the chocolate:
12 - 14 oz good quality white chocolate 

Mix in quickly:
1/4 - 1/3 cup crushed peppermint candy (candy canes, small peppermint candies)
Crushed peppermint candies - then mixed quickly with the melted white chocolate.

Fold melted white chocolate/peppermint mixture into popcorn quickly!  Mixing with your hands is effective, since it helps you do this part quickly.

Scoop popcorn onto prepared cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Sprinkle over top of popcorn:
1/4 - 1/3 cup crushed peppermint candy
