The only change I made in the recipe was I used Wilton Christmas Sprinkles and Holiday M&Ms instead of the peppermint candies. Don't add the M&Ms in too quickly or they will melt. I also added an extra step to the recipe. I dumped the bags of popcorn onto a cookie sheet to get the unpopped kernels out before I coated the popcorn. I made two double batches and should have made more. Everyone loved it! Read More

It is easy to make only I put my popcorn in a brown bag after popping and pour the chocolate and nuts over the popcorn then shake until coated. It makes for a lot less mess. Read More

We left out the peppermint because we were just looking for the right amounts of almond bark to use. It's sweet it's salty - what more could you ask for?:D Read More

I ve made this twice. The first time I used one bag of white chocolate chips but tripled the popcorn using 3 bags of lightly salted microwave popcorn and 6 crushed candy canes. The second time I doubled the recipe using two bags of lightly salted microwave popcorn four candy canes and six squares of almond bark. I cooked bark in microwave for 30 second intervals until melted stirring after each time and it took about 1 1/2 minutes to melt. I liked the consistency of the bark better. Put the two bags of popcorn in a very large bowl drizzled 1/3 of melted bark sprinkled 1/3 crushed candy canes on top then mixed with a large spatula. Repeated two additional times. Spread on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. This is a refreshing holiday snack. Lots of compliments. Read More
