And if your family likes to go out and about and look at all the Christmas lights, load up a bag of this yummy popcorn and take it with you on your outing.
There are so many fun parts to this recipe that everyone in the family can help out on. The only real part that needs close supervision is the microwaving of the chocolate. It’s going to be very hot when it’s done and you don’t want anyone to get burnt.
One of the funniest “jobs” of this entire recipe is being able to crush up the peppermints into small pieces. In fact, if you have more than one child, you can put a few in a couple of bags and let them both have fun doing this!
As long as they get them all crushed up well and have fun doing it, there’s nothing wrong with letting everyone have a turn.

- One bag popcorn, popped
- 2 cups white chocolate chips
- 15 peppermint candies
- Red jellybeans for garnishing
Start by lining a baking sheet with wax paper. Set it aside for later.
Next, take the chocolate chips and melt them in a micrwave-safe container in the microwave in 30-second timeframes. Mix after every 30 seconds.
Once done, put your popped popcorn in a large bowl and combine the melted chocolate with it. Fold together carefully.
Once it's all mixed, lay the coated popcorn out on the baking sheet.
Take your peppermint candies and crush them up using a rolling pin. I put them in a bag first and seal it to avoid having a mess.
Once they're all crushed, sprinkle it over the popcorn and let it set for about 30 minutes before eating.
Give everyone their own bowl and don't forget to top with red jellybeans!
