let me start by letting you know that if you can't control yourself around salty sweet popcorn then you probably shouldn't make this.
because if you can't control yourself to begin with, then you're probably going to OD on this stuff. it's fan-freaking-tastic.
alright- i warned you.
Peppermint Cookies & Cream Popcorn (via plain chicken)
8 cups of popped popcorn (you can use the microwave stuff, but i prefer to pop it on the stove)
1 (6oz) box of candy canes, crushed
1 package of Oreos, crushed (i used double stuffed)
1 1/2 packs of Almond Bark, vanilla
1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
Directions: Pop your popcorn according to the directions & set aside in a massive bowl. Like a bowl WAY bigger than you think you'll need- because you will.
Crush the candy canes & the Oreos & mix with the popcorn.
Melt the almond bark according to the package directions & stir in the peppermint extract.
Pour the melted almond bark over your popcorn mixture & stir until everything is evenly coated. I used a nice stir/fold technique. I also used a spatula- worked better for me.
Then spread the popcorn out onto wax paper & allow it to harden.
Break it up & then get busy shoveling it into your mouth.
I'm telling you guys- seriously awesome. I made this & put it into cellaphane bags & passed them out as party favors at brynn's 1st birthday party. A hit- total win.
I'm also planning on making it & giving it as Christmas gifts (along with 2 other popcorn recipes that i'll share later this week)- cheap, easy & genius.
