White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn

Earlier this week my older daughter was home sick. We ended up baking together all day and having a wonderful time. Normally making sweet treats is two gifts in one, the opportunity to spend time with my girls and the sweet treat itself. Right now, using M&M’S®s in our baking is extra sweet because for every bag of M&M’S® purchased at Walmart, money will be donated to food banks all over America. I love knowing that we are making a treat together and helping people in need all at the same time. We made lots of different yummy M&M’S®s treats but this White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn was one of our favorites. 



You will need:



Unwrap 2-3 candy canes and put them in large bag, use a rubber mallet or rolling pin to crush them into fine pieces. This is my daughter's very favorite part of making this recipe! 



Place the almond bark in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir the almond bark and microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir the chocolate again. Keep repeating until it is melted. When I was making this recipe I only had to microwave the almond bark for 2-30 second increments, be careful to not overheat.


Once your almond bark is melted, mix in the crushed up candy canes. (optional step Cut up DOVE® Peppermint Bark (Limited Edition) pieces into small bits.)


Pour the chocolate/candy cane mixture over top of the popcorn. Stir the popcorn until it is evenly coated. (Optional Step: Throw the peppermint bark in while the popcorn and white chocolate are still warm to help those pieces melt.)


Spread the popcorn out on the parchment paper, sprinkle a full bag of M&M’S® Brand White Peppermint (Limited Edition) Candies and mix them in to the popcorn. Let the popcorn set up until the chocolate is no longer melted.


This popcorn has just the perfect touch of peppermint to it, I loved getting a bite with  M&M’S® in it to give it an extra peppermint punch. We picked up our M&M’S® at Walmart because right now Every time you buy M&M’S® at Walmart, milk is donated to your local food bank*.


Childhood should be filled with playing, learning and growing. But for many children who face hunger, even basic staples like milk are missing.This Season, help The Great American Milk Drive  deliver its 1 MILLIONTH gallon to Feeding America. Head to visit www.milklife.com/give learn how you can help give back to kids in need this season.  

What are your favorite M&M’S® to buy and help kids in need?
