If you’ve never tasted popcorn bark before, you’re totally missing out – it’s an awesome combination of nuts, candy, chocolate, and of course, crunchy popcorn kernels. Here are two easy recipes to get you started!

White Chocolate and Peppermint Popcorn Bark

Peppermint isn’t just for the holidays – this minty popcorn bark is a great snack all year round. We found this recipe on food.com.

12 ounces white chocolate chips
1 cup peppermint candy, crushed
5 cups freshly popped popcorn

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler – a microwave is not recommended for white chocolate as it burns very easily.
Stir through the peppermint candy and popcorn.
Spread the mixture evenly over a lined baking tray, and leave in the refrigerator until set.
Break into bark, and enjoy!
