Holiday Popcorn Crunch

This is something my Mom would make while I was growing up and I would get so excited for this sweet treat. It’s simple but I think your taste buds and/or guests will be happy! Warning: It’s like a bag of chips, once you start you won’t want to stop. Feel free to change up the colors or skip the “drizzle” to enjoy any time of year. I hope you love this popcorn crunch as much as I do!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Servings 10


  • 2 bags microwave popcorn
  • 5-6 oz dry roasted peanuts
  • 16 oz Almond Bark (or white chocolate)
  • Red and Green food coloring (or another color depending on your holiday)


  1.  Pop the popcorn and put into a large bowl

  2. Add peanuts to the bowl of popcorn and lightly mix

  3. Break Almond Bark up into the precut squares

  4. Add almond bark to a microwave safe bowl (leave out 3 squares - we will use this for our drizzle later)

  5. Microwave the almond bark in the bowl for 1 minute

  6. Take out and stir, microwave for another minute if needed, take out and stir again until smooth (you want it thoroughly softened, but not overheated)

  7. While the almond bark is heating get out a few cookie sheets and cover with waxed paper or parchment paper

  8. As soon as the almond bark is softened pour it into the bowl with the popcorn and peanuts (if you wait too long the almond bark will harden)

  9. Fold in the ingredients until evenly coated

  10. Pour mixture onto the waxed paper and spread evenly to let dry

  11. Melt the remaining squares of almond bark in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds, stir and melt more if needed (section off for the amount of colors you are wanting to use) *you can also use writing icing for this

  12. Stir in food coloring and quickly drizzle on the popcorn crunch

  13. Break up your popcorn crunch into clusters for serving & enjoy!
