Candy Cane Popcorn

During the Christmas season I’m always looking for friend and neighbor gifts that are tasty, pretty, and easy. This Candy Cane Popcorn is all three. I know it sounds simple but these three ingredients come together to create magic.

This creamy popcorn tastes like Christmas! I was surprised how much I enjoyed it because it was so easy to throw together and when you’re making mass amounts of edible gifts, that’s important. This is definitely on the top of my favorite popcorn list.

I tested it out on my neighbor’s taste buds too. Yes, I’m that crazy woman giving my neighbors Christmas treats in November. They all gave me the thumbs up.

If you want to make these cute tags, just print this document I made here on some white cardstock. Here are the Candy Cane Popcorn Tags.

You can pop your own popcorn but I actually just used one bag of microwavable popcorn which turned out to be 8 cups. Just don’t use one that’s super heavy on butter.

You want a blank canvas to put your toppings on. Crushed candy canes are stirred into the almond bark to help it stick to the popcorn with additional candy canes sprinkled on top.

Recipe Notes

This time of year almond bark can usually be found in your grocery store. I also can find it at Target and I can always find it at Walmart. It melts so much better than white chocolate.
