Candy Cane Popcorn Recipe and Labels

This year we made a bunch of candy cane popcorn to give as gifts. We covered a folding banquet table with freezer paper, set up an assembly line, and went through 15 pounds of almond bark and 120 candy canes. We used this recipe but added extra almond bark.

Candy Cane Popcorn

24 oz. vanilla almond bark
12 peppermint candy canes, crushed in a food processor
1/2 cup popcorn kernels, popped

Follow package directions to melt almond bark in the microwave, oven, or on the stovetop. Stir 1/2 cup of the crushed candy canes into the melted bark and pour over the popcorn (you need a very large bowl). Stir to coat popcorn while sprinkling with remaining crushed candy canes.

Each batch makes approximately 16 cups popcorn.

We packaged the popcorn in red Chinese take out containers and added a label. Here is a pdf of the labels (cut with a 2" circle punch).

Yum this looks so good! The packaging is great too - I might have my girls try that for Valentine's Day:)

How many Chinese take out boxes did you make? I need about 125 and want to figure out how much stuff I need to buy.

This was a few years ago so I don't remember exactly, sorry!

1/2 cup popcorn kernels equals about 16 cups of popcorn so you could figure it out that way (not sure what size of boxes you are using).

I'll update the recipe with that info.

Thanks for the question!
