Movie Night Gift Part 1: Candy Cane Popcorn Bark

Here's a cute gift idea.

Make some yummy candy cane popcorn bark and deliver it in a Christmasy popcorn bag. 

If you're extra sweet, throw in a movie ticket and get a good Girls Night Out in the works.

(to be scheduled once the holidays are over, of course... wink)

This stuff is ridiculously easy, but so good.

Melt one entire package (16 oz.) of vanilla flavored almond bark. Stir in a popped bag of popcorn (I like salted), picked free of any kernels, 6 crushed candy canes and 1/2 t. peppermint extract.

Spread on a greased cookie sheet and let cool. Break apart when hard.

Hide it from your husband and the kids, er, I mean, share with loved ones.

  3. Very lovely and thoughtful gift. I love how you so casually mention 'popcorn bark' like I know what it is!! But then, true to form, you come through with the recipe. Thank you! x

  5. I think this is a fabulous idea! My grandmother loves the peppermint chocolate so much & this is a wonderful alternative, that can be made year round. Thank you so much! & to the writer that asked how long it would last. I would have to say that it ends up like a tootsie pop. The world may never know :)
