This is one of my all time Holiday favorites in fact we made 75 bags as teacher gifts for our Elementary school last week.
This gift idea that doesn’t cost much and is so easy to make.  It’s Peppermint Popcorn.  After receiving a bag for Christmas last year, my husband asked me to figure out how to make it.  I took the recipe for White Chocolate Popcorn, and simply added the crushed candy cane… and the result was festive and very yummy.

Here’s the recipe:

    * 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn (16 cups popped)
    * 2 cups white chocolate chips
    * 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy canes
    * a dash of salt
    * popcorn may be lightly buttered if desired
I posted step-by-step photos and instructions here as well: http://makeitdo.wordpress.com/2009/11/19/make-it-do-gift-peppermint-popcorn/

Enjoy,

This is genius, I LOVE peppermint bark!  I am definitely going to give this a try... I will have to work out measurements for using bags of microwave popcorn though since we don't have an air popper... I hate math... haha!

Do you think it tastes better with the plain popcorn (we only have butter, but I have to get white choc. chips anyway...)?

Personally, I do think it tastes better with plain popcorn, but adding a little salt definitely enhanced the flavor.  I have to warn you though it is addicting  Smiley
