The Freshman Cook: Candy Cane Popcorn!!

Please Rate this Recipe

Every Christmas I make a lot of gift baskets filled with food. I stuff them with cookies, candies, and nuts, and sometimes I add sauces, like BBQ or hot fudge. The process of putting it all together, deciding what recipes to make, and how to package the goodies is a source of great joy to me. When I see how happy recipients of the baskets are, it really is a present ~ for me! This year I have an abundance of glass jars (remnants of my biscoff obsession) that I wanted to put to good use. I wanted something that would look pretty and taste great. That’s how I came up with this Candy Cane Popcorn!

Candy Cane Popcorn

16 cups popped Popcorn

12 squares of Vanilla Almond Bark

20 Candy Canes

Pop your popcorn and chop up your almond bark.

Let it melt slowly, stirring and using low heat.

Meanwhile, line 2 baking sheets with parchment.

 Crush your candy canes into small pieces.

Pour your popped corn in to a large bowl. 

You will need a large bowl for extra mixing room.

 Add your melted  almond bark. Mix thoroughly.

Distribute the wet popcorn between the two

baking sheets.

Sprinkle with your crushed candy canes.

Let dry.

Here is a close up to see how it sticks to the

popcorn with the help of the melted bark.

To make the jars I tied bakers twine around the lid,

 stuck a mini candy cane in the bow, and…..

 decorated the top of the lid.

They will be the perfect addition 

to the gift baskets!
