Candy Cane Crunch Christmas Popcorn Recipe

“Party popcorn,” as my littles call it, is a staple in our house for every holiday. You remember those special holiday treats that you always loved when you were little, right?

This one has always been a go-to in our house because it’s easy and inexpensive to make for large families. I always keep the ingredients on hand so that when it’s time to break out a Christmas dessert, this party popcorn recipe is ready to go.

The best part about this popcorn recipe is that it can be altered to any occasion or color scheme or to use ingredients you already have on hand.

This is our Christmas version . . . perfect for snuggling up and watching a movie or just for a festive snack any time. Need something to snack on for your Netflix holiday binge? This recipe is it!

Funny side note: growing up, we always popped our popcorn in a $5 garage sale popcorn popper my mom found.

We did this even thought microwave popcorn was available.It always seemed kitschy and fun and we always thought the popcorn tasted better!
