It's so easy to make a special homemade gift to give your friends and neighbors without spending a lot of time or money. Here's how I did it this year.
First I popped a huge portion of popcorn.
Then I melted some white chocolate.
You have to check it - to make sure you don't burn it.
I melt it slowly...checking on it as I go.
When it's smooth and glossy - you're ready.
I smashed about 8 candy canes -- but first I put them in a baggie to keep the mess contained - but you could use any peppermint candy - I just had these around the house during the holidays.
I stirred most of the crumbled peppermint into the white chocolate but I reserved some to sprinkle over the top of the popcorn to make it look prettier.
And I left a few big chunks of peppermint.
Then I poured the white chocolate and peppermint mixture over the top of the popcorn - in a stainless steel bowl - and I stirred it around to make sure it was well-covered.
Then I took some metal tins and lined them with aluminum foil and poured the popcorn inside.
That way they have the tin after they finish the popcorn for another little gift :D
But, if you don't have tins, you could use baggies - after the popcorn has cooled and the white chocolate has set - and wrap a pretty ribbon on the top and WAH-LAH a wonderful edible gift you can give and feel proud that it will be enjoyed. And, if you want to add a movie into the mix... no problem!
It can be a wonderful evening you can give a family...now, if only FROZEN was out in dvd. :D
