White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn

White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn- this is so delicious and easy to make!


There are so many delicious holiday treats on my “must make” list- but it’s hard to keep up this time of year! So I made this super quick, easy and delicious for white chocolate peppermint popcorn that will have your guests impressed- and you can let them think it took forever!

This is the perfect gift to give to neighbors, teachers, or coworkers- it is inexpensive and easy to dress up in pretty packaging!

There is something about the combination of salty and sweet that works so well with peppermint in this recipe- and the white chocolate isn’t overpowering so you can still get a popcorn flavor. The peppermint is best with slightly larger chunks to add a bit more bite- I just crush them in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. If you did it in a blender, I’d have a light touch so it doesn’t become a fine powder.

One note: you can use a bag of pre-popped kettle corn or microwaveable kettle corn- but I LOVE using the Perfect Kettle Corn recipe from Something Swanky. It is delicious, and so easy to make. SO worth the extra effort- and really- it is SO easy!


White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn
  • Classic Kettle Corn (I use a recipe from Something Swanky- it works perfectly every time!) or you can use a bag of kettle corn, or plain popped kettle popcorn (but really, the homemade stuff tastes best!!)
  • 20 White Chocolate Peppermint Hershey Kisses, unwrapped
  • 1tsp vegetable/canola/coconut oil
  • 6-10 mini candy canes, crushed OR 4-6 large candy canes crushed (depending on if you want more or less in the mix)
  1. Dump kettle corn into very large bowl.
  2. In a microwave safe dish, add white chocolate hershey kisses and oil.
  3. Microwave for 30 seconds.
  4. Give kisses a quick stir and microwave again for another 30 seconds.
  5. Repeat until kisses are melted and thin enough to drizzle (they will have small red bits that look like sprinkles- this is why using peppermint hershey kisses is essential because they naturally melt this way).
  6. Drizzle some of the chocolate over popcorn and sprinkle some crushed candy canes.
  7. Toss popcorn, adding more chocolate and candy canes as you toss until it is evenly coated.
  8. Let set for 10 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!
