peppermint bark popcorn

If you liked my peppermint bark  you will love it on popcorn.  This is a fun treat to fill goody bags for a class party or small neighbor gifts.  A little goes a long way,  It is so addictive and yummy and easy to make.

16-20 C popped popcorn (fresh, or about 2 bags microwave popcorn)
1 lb Almond Bark
1 6oz box candy canes, crushed. (About 1-1 1/2 C total and Bob's are the best!)
2 tea. peppermint extract, or a few drops of peppermint oil
*one bag microwave popcorn has about 10 cups in it, so if you're air-popping, do about 20 cups.
Place popcorn in a very large mixing bowl.
   Unwrap all the candy canes and just like for the bark I place them in a zip lock bag and hit it with my rolling pin or let me kids do it.  it is fun!
  Then in the microwave in one minute increments  melt your chocolate stirring often. It is safer to melt in a bowl over  boiling water make sure not to let the water touch your bowl.  I am sometimes too lazy.
  After chocolate is smooth. Pour in peppermint.   In large bowl pour crushed candy over popcorn then pour melted chocolate over as well and mix carefully.
 Then lay popcorn out on cookie sheet to let dry. Once dry break into seconds and put into bags and enjoy.   
 Note:  In the past I have drizzled dark chocolate over the top too.  It is really pretty I just forgot this year til too late.
