Calories 171kcal


  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate wafers
  • 1/3 cup candy canes crushed (will need about 4 regular sized candy canes)


  • Pop the popcorn kernels with an air popper. 
  • Place several candy canes in a food processor or blender, blend until finely crushed. 
  • Melt the dipping wafers according to package directions. (I place in a microwave safe bowl and heat at half power in 30 second intervals, stirring well after each interval. Continue doing this until fully melted).
  • Pour the white chocolate over the popped popcorn, stir to coat. Add the crushed candy canes and gently mix. 
  • Let popcorn sit for 1 hour or so to let the white chocolate set. Store in an airtight container for up 5-7 days.
