Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn

It finally snowed some here in the high deserts of Utah  It was pretty, but treacherous.  I made some delicious popcorn to go along with the season.  The white popcorn reminded me of snow.  It is just a simple recipe to throw together
Pop some white popcorn.  I made one batch in my air popper.  You could also use two bags of microwave popcorn, but then you won't get the white look that I desired.
In a large bowl, add the popcorn, some salt, and some melted butter, and mix well.  Then spread out popcorn on cookie baking pans or jelly roll pans.

Drizzle with some melted milk chocolate chips ( I used about 2/3
's of a 12-ounce bag) and then add some crushed peppermint sticks.  I always like the Bob's peppermint sticks that come in the little blue package; they are much softer than regular candy canes.

Add a cup of toasted pecans, cut in small pieces.  Make sure you add the crushed peppermint sticks and pecans when the chocolate has not hardened, and press the crushed peppermint and pecans to help it adhere to the melted chocolate.

Wrap it in a cellophane bag, and give it to someone you love.

Thanks for dropping by the couch.
