The key to making this popcorn is to use fine quality white chocolate. I have seen similar recipes using candy wafers and almond bark, but my preference is great quality chocolate. I also pop my popcorn in an air popper. I find microwave bagged popcorn too oily and salty. For the candy cane coating I crushed the candy in a blender, pulsing, being careful to get crushed cane and not dust. You don’t want large bits that when you have a bite full of popcorn it breaks a tooth!
