Author Susie Gall


  • 1 bag Kettle Corn I used Pop-Secret Kettle Corn
  • 1 teaspoon Canola oil
  • 15 White Chocolate Candy Kisses Candy Cane flavored, divided 10 & 5 (I used Hershey's)


  1. Pour popcorn into a large bowl.
  2. Pour 10 candy kisses & oil in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds, stir then microwave another 30 seconds.
  3. Pour the melted kisses over the popcorn and stir.
  4. Spread the white chocolate peppermint popcorn over parchment paper and let it cool for a few minutes.
  5. Salt with coarse salt if desired.
  6. Crush the 5 remaining candy kisses.
  7. After the popcorn has cooled a little, sprinkle the crushed kisses over the popcorn and mix gently.
  8. Allow the popcorn to completely dry, break apart any stuck pieces, then serve immediately or store in an air-tight container.
  9. It is best eaten within 2-3 days, but is still tasty up to a week.
  10. Enjoy!

    You're my hero! Had some while I was visiting family in the Midwest. Came home & it's nowhere to be found. This is amazing - can't wait to make some!!

      Ooh, I love being a hero!! :-) I played around with this idea and found this to be the easiest version and best-tasting popcorn for me. I know there are other recipes that use more white chocolate and/or peppermint, but I wanted a mild and not too sweet version. My husband and I couldn't stay out of this stuff:-) I did add a sprinkling of kosher salt to get that great sweet/salty taste I love. Thanks for taking the time to comment, Patricia, and I hope you love this popcorn. I would love your feedback. Your hero:-)

    This looks delicious. I'm with you, loving the white chocolate and peppermint. I made this over the weekend, I didn't use the kisses, that would have been fun, maybe the next batch. I didn't get photos until today, it's been so dark here with our nasty weather. I think I've eaten more of this than any other sweet so far. Love it. Pinned/shared.Joanne

      I know - it is dangerous stuff to have in the house. Thanks so much for coming by, Joanne, I'm wishing for you longer and brighter days to get those photos taken:-)
    This looks so amazing, I would eat the whole thing myself and then have to make more. Dangerously delicious!!

      Thanks, Tara. I know - I'm the same way, but luckily my husband ate most of the popcorn. Thanks for coming by.

      You are absolutely right, Chris. I'm so glad you came by - your blog is one of my all-time favorites. Thank you so much and have a great Christmas.
    Super fun food! So festive...pinning!
    We bought some white chocolate peppermint from Sesame Place during their Furry Christmas event a few weeks ago. It was delicious and my 11 year old daughter and I were determined to find an easy, DIY recipe to make together on Christmas Eve. We just finished! We used your recipe and it's so delicious and was really easy! Thank you for sharing! Merry Christmas!
