Popcorn Candy Cane Bars - Recipe

I love this time of year...My main reason for loving it is because of the food....hehehe

You may remember the Bonfire night recipe I shared using Metcalfe’s Skinny Popcorn.....Now they have came up with another great recipe perfect for this time of year!


To make the perfect edible gift or just a treat for yourself you need:

100g Metcalfe’s cinema sweet popcorn
4 crushed candy canes
100g Chocolate beans (Christmas colours)
450g white chocolate
100ml double cream mixed with 2 tsp peppermint flavouring
White chocolate and red gel colouring for decoration (optional)
Candy canes to decorate (4)

To make:

1. Line a 20 x 30cm brownie tin with parchment and set to one side.
2. Heat the cream & peppermint in the microwave but do not boil.
3. Pour this over the white chocolate and stir until everything has melted – if the mixture is too thick heat a little in the microwave to loosen.
4. In a bowl, combine the popcorn, crushed candy canes and half of the chocolate beans.
5. Pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn and fold with a spatula ensuring everything is coated.
6. Spoon the mixture into the lined tin and spread out evenly.
7. Top the bar with the remaining chocolate beans, whole or crushed candy canes and drizzle with the red coloured chocolate.
8. Allow to set in the fridge for an hour or two or overnight.
Once set, remove from the tin and wrap whole or divide into smaller bars and wrap, ribbon and tag!
