or 1 cup of white chocolate chips sprinkles or crushed candy
Make popcorn in a popcorn machine or on the stove.
Pour popcorn into a large bowl, and slowly pour melted butter on top. Sprinkle salt on next. Toss to coat popped kernels with butter and salt.
Warm chocolate in microwave or on double boiler. If using microwave, cook for 15 seconds at a time and then stir gently. This will prevent over cooking. When the chocolate is almost melted, but some chunks still exist, remove from microwave and stir to melt remaining pieces.
Gently pour all over popcorn, tossing popcorn gently as you go to coat.
Place peppermints in a reusable storage bag and use a rolling pin to crush. Sprinkle crushed peppermint over popcorn mixture.
