Step 1: Gather Supplies

26 Cups of popped popcorn ( About 2 cups of un-popped kernels )
3 Cups of white chocolate melting wafers
2/3 cup of crushed candy canes (Any flavor)
A small amount of oil
Tin Foil
Larger belt ( you'll need this later )

Step 2: Crush the candy canes

Crush the canes I found a food processor powdered them , so I used a plastic bag and rolling pin and after a few good whacks it was a nice size..

Step 3: Pop Popcorn

Pop the popcorn kernels, I use a stove top, but a hot air popper or a microwave also work great . When done allow the popcorn to cool.. ( I have also found it easier to make more popcorn, then trying to keep the kids hands out of the bowl )

Step 4: White Chocolate

Melt white chocolate melting wafers until smooth and all the wafers are gone, I recommend either a double boiler, or microwave oven however you can also do it on a stove top but be very careful not to burn the chocolate.

If you use white chocolate chips you need to add a tablespoon of butter once melted to soften the chocolate when it hardens , this will also make it smoother and easier to work with..

Step 5: Mix together

Add the melted Chocolate wafers to the popcorn and stir until it's fully coated, this is when the kids will make there second appearance just in time to lick the bowls clean.

Step 6: Add crushed candy canes

Add crushed candy canes and stir, the kids are helpful at this point if you can get them to slowly add the powder while it's being stirred...

I just tried making it a few hours ago. White chocolate turned into a dried out mush but I was able to salvage it canolia oil. Even messing it up, it still tastes great. The chocolate is a little soft though.

There's no such thing as too many flavored holiday popcorn Instructables!  Post yours too, and link to this one.

I suppose that's true. I just don't really have the time right now to make up all my flavors to take pictures for it : /.. Besides the featured instructables always win the contests, so there's almost no point..

There's always time!  And this Instructable is a year old, so not in this year's competition. And why not take great pictures and get yourself featured?

Good luck. ;)

Wow, this sounds excellent!
Perhaps I'll make it for a holiday party - safer than having it around the house. ;)
That... looks... incredible. I might use a mix of white and mint chocolate, maybe make a neat swirly effect. Yum.
