Sweet & Salty Christmas Treat

Thinking about how much I love icing and sugar got me thinking about a sweet and salty snack I could make this week. For Christmas happies this year I am making one of my favorite treats. I first tried this snack at Persnickety in Madison, MS.

I sent a picture of the popcorn to Bowen and said PLEASE buy me a bulk size bag of this stuff for Christmas. Well of course my mom knew it could be whipped in no time in our very own kitchen, we made it for Kim’s party (see HERE) and now I am making for my friends for Christmas. Hope you enjoy!

White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn 

1 bag buttered popcorn (you need the salty to counteract the sweet, trust me)

1 container almond bark (white or vanilla flavored)

1/2 c. crushed peppermint

Pop popcorn according to directions, lay cooked popcorn on sheet tray. In the meantime, melt white chocolate in glass bowl in 30 second increments until almost melted (not all the way!!), continue to stir until smooth and drizzle over popcorn. Now hurry and toss your peppermint pieces on the popcorn chocolate mixture before the white chocolate hardens. Enjoy or give away to enjoy!
