Print Recipe


  • 8 cups popcorn popped
  • 4 oz fine quality white chocolate
  • ½ cup crushed candy canes adjust to your liking


  • Using an electric grinder, grind candy canes until you get small bits. I make sure there aren't any big chunks, as that is way too hard on your teeth.
  • Pop the popcorn in air popper or stovetop.
  • Melt chocolate over double boiler just until melted.
  • Place popcorn in extra large bowl. You need lots of room to stir. If doubling the recipe you may want to work in batches.
  • Drizzle chocolate over popcorn while continually stirring. Be sure to coat the popcorn evenly.
  • Next, sprinkle with crushed candy canes, stirring continually to coat popcorn evenly.
  • Spread popcorn out on cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment paper.
  • Allow chocolate to set before packaging
