White-Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Popcorn #FoodieExtravaganza

peppermint-crunch-popcornGot some leftover peppermint stick candy canes lying around? Me too! My kids love popcorn, and this white-chocolate covered version is a favorite of theirs. It is both salty and sweet. I am doing a peppermint version, with a touch of salt. If peppermint is not your thing, this recipe is so customizable and great for using up leftover candy (like my White Chocolate Salty-Sweet Popcorn with M&Ms). Or you can try some other great popcorn ideas from the #FoodieExtravaganza bloggers at the end of the post!

Foodie Extravaganza is where we celebrate obscure food holidays or cook and bake together with the same ingredient or theme each month. This month we celebrate National Popcorn Day (which is January 19th) by serving up popcorn as creatively as we can.

Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla is hosting and here’s the challenge she shared with the crew…

“National Popcorn Day is celebrated annually January 19th. It can be sweet, savory, buttered, plain, and even shaped into balls. So, bring your most fun, creative – or just your favorite – twist to eating popcorn.”

Posting day for #FoodieExtravaganza is always the first Wednesday of each month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza. We would love to have you!
