How to make Christmas Popcorn using Orville Redenbacher’s Movie Theater Butter Popcorn:
- Pop 2 bags of popcorn and remove any unpopped kernals
- Melt your white chocolate, red candy melts, and green candy melts all in their own microwave safe bowls
- Mix the melted white chocolate into the popcorn, stirring to get all the popcorn coated
- Place popcorn on a baking sheet then drizzle with red and green melted candy melts
- Sprinkle with your favorite holiday candies and sprinkles
- Allow the popcorn and melted chocolate to set up and then enjoy!
How to get popcorn and chocolate to harden fast?
Simply refrigerate the popcorn after you are done adding all the candy, sprinkles, and candy melt drizzle for 5-10 minutes.
Where to get peppermint bark?
Adding peppermint bark to this Christmas Popcorn is so delicious. When I’ve made a batch of my own, I will chop a bit of it and add it to the popcorn, other times I will just grab some already made from the holiday candy aisle at my local grocery store!
This simple and delicious dinner and dessert are perfect for slowing down and enjoying the holiday season. Whether its prepared for your family or a group of friends who are getting together to write Christmas Cards, wrap presents or simply watch a Christmas movie- it is the perfect meal to embrace the Joy of Missing Out!
I have to say watching Christmas movies is definitely one of my favorite ways to get into the holiday spirit and relax- alongside an easy and delicious dinner!
I’ve grown up watching White Christmas every year and my husband always watches It’s a Wonderful Life. What are your favorite holiday movies to watch? What are some ways that you celebrate the Joy of Missing out?

In a microwave safe dish microwave your white chocolate. To do this place your microwave on 50% power, microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until white chocolate chips are melted.
Melt your red and green candy melts in separate microwave safe bowls the same way you melted the white chocolate chips.
Pour the white chocolate over the popcorn and stir until thoroughly mixed.
Spread the popcorn onto the parchment lined baking sheet.
Using a spoon or small spatula drizzle the red and green melted candy melts over the popcorn.
Sprinkle popcorn with crushed candy candies, chopped peppermint bark, candy coated chocolates, and lots of sprinkles.
Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until the popcorn has set completely.
Lisa’s Tips and Tricks
How to remove unpopped kernels:
Place a cooling rack on top of a large baking sheet. Pour half of a bag of popcorn onto the cooling racking and allow the unpopped kernels to fall through the cooling rack to the baking sheet. Remove popcorn and repeat with remain popcorn in bag.
