Directions:
1. Pop your bag of popcorn. Most microwaves have a ‘popcorn’ button to press for the perfect time. After it’s popped, spread the popcorn out in a pan.

4. Next, crush up the candy canes into small pieces. Put them in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin or wine bottle to smash them into bits without making a mess.

5. Sprinkle the crushed candy canes on the popcorn. Then put it in the fridge for about 10 minutes so the chocolate can harden and there you have it! A holiday dessert/snack that you can get away with any time of year.
