Peppermint Bark Popcorn
16-20 cups popped popcorn
1 pound white chocolate almond bark
1 6 ounce box candy canes, crushed (about 1 generous cup)
2 teaspoons peppermint extract or a few drops peppermint oil to taste
3/4 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
Place popcorn in a very large mixing bowl.
Melt almond bark according to package instructions. When completely melted, add extract or peppermint oil. If using extract, it's normal for the almond bark to seize (get lumpy) which is okay, just stir very quickly because the more you wait the more it will seize.
Pour melted bark mixture over popcorn, adding crushed candy canes on top. Stir to coat evenly. Pour popcorn onto waxed paper, parchment, or foil and spread out.
When chocolate is hardened, use your hands to break it into large chunks and then serve.
