You are going to love how easy this recipe is and it’s just perfect for kids!  Last year I shared my Marshmallow Peppermint Crunch Popcorn Ball Pops with you and in the interest of saving characters, I opted for a much simpler Peppermint Crunch Popcorn this year :)

There isn’t any marshmallow in this recipe but it’s just as delicious and takes 15 minutes to pull together – INCLUDING popping the popcorn.  I love how festive it is with the sprinkles.  Of course, sprinkles make everything better.

I used Andes Peppermint Crunch chips for the peppermint flavor and a little bit of peppermint extract.  The first go around without peppermint extract just wasn’t pepperminty enough :)  I like using the Andes Peppermint Crunch Chips because they add all that amazing flavor and I don’t have to worry about the sharp edges of crushed candy canes.

  1. This would be a perfect gift to bring to a holiday party. I know I would be over the moon if I received a bag or bucket of this sweet and minty popcorn! Thank you for sharing it with us!

  2. I love this so freaking much!

  3. Hi there,

    How long would you say this stays fresh for? I am thinking of shipping this. So there would be approx. 3 days before anyone could eat it…

    What do you think?

  4. How many cups of popped popcorn do you use? I buy popcorn in bulk (already popped) for caramel corn and would love to try this, too! Thanks!

    • Just a rough estimate here, but I’d think between 12-14 cups of popped popcorn. I would start on the low end making sure you’re getting good coverage and then you add in more if it looks like it needs it. Enjoy!

  5. This is making my mouth water as I type, Trish! I’m a peppermint fanatic myself. I use it every chance I can during the month of December. Thanks so much for sharing! I hope you’re enjoying this magical time of year!

  6. Where do you buy the Andes peppermint crunch? Can yo tell I haven’t done this before? hehe

  7. Does this need to be refrigerated or is room temp ok? Looks amazing!

  8. Hi!
    I live in Australia and we don’t have any peppermint baking chips. Suggestions to replace it? Will smashed up candy cane work?

  9. I tried it with candy canes. Bit of a pain, but turned out fantastic!! Can’t wait until my students try this!

  10. Peppermint and Popcorn, two of my favorite things!!! I saw this on Wake up Wednesdays and it looks delicious!!! :)

  11. Monica Mrozek says:

    If you’re using microwave popcorn, how much would you use?? I’m assuming the 3/4 cup is if you pop it yourself Thank you :)

  12. When i are in Quarterly report as well as all of us don’t possess almost any peppermint cooking potato chips. Tips to change the idea? Can smashed way up sweet walking cane operate?

  13. How did you prevent the white chips from seizing up, when you added the extract??

  14. Of course I find this amazingly awesome page full of wonderful recipes a 6 year old would like 6 days before Christmas LOL!
