You can use any flavor of Oreo’s, but I used the regular ones.
Then place your candy canes into the blender and blend them up. Then sprinkle them into the popcorn; they give this snack a wonder flavor.
Then there’s the white chocolate, it make this popcorn fantastic. However, you could use any kind of chocolate that you prefer. I think that the white chocolate with the candy canes makes it very festive for this time of year.
Can I Use Popcorn That I Purchased Already Popped, in Oreo Candy Cane Popcorn Crunch Instead of Popping Popcorn?
- Yes, just make sure that it isn’t salted, buttered, or flavored with anything.
- Buy plain popcorn to use in this recipe.
How Can I Remove Un-popped Kernels From my Popcorn?
- Place a cooling rack over your bowl of freshly popped popcorn.
- Invert and shake the un-popped kernels out. (The spaces in your cooling rack are large enough to allow the un-popped kernels to fall through, but small enough to keep the popped kernels in)!
