Christmas Peppermint Popcorn

I love the mix of white chocolate and peppermint in this popcorn mix. It offers a great balance of flavors. Plus, the touches of red make it look so festive. These go well with the Snowman Ding Dongs that I made not long ago. It makes a great treat for the kids. 

Do you like the salty/sweet combination of your snacks? If so, then this Christmas Peppermint Popcorn is definitely for you. Be sure to tag me on any pics if you decide to make it for your family!
