  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • 8

    cups lightly salted popcorn (I used Orville Redenbacher’s Natural Lightly Salted)

  • 9

    oz. vanilla candy coating (I used Kroger brand, found in the baking aisle), divided

  • ¼

    tsp. peppermint extract

  • 18

    Thin Mint cookies, roughly chopped

  • green food coloring


Place popped popcorn in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, place 8 oz. of the candy. Melt, in the microwave, for 45 seconds. Stir. Cook for 15 second intervals, stirring after every beep, until fully melted and smooth. Stir in peppermint extract. Pour the candy mixture over the popcorn and, with your hands, carefully coat the popcorn. Add the cookie pieces and toss some more. Spread the mixture out on one or two cookie sheets that have been lined in wax paper or parchment. In a small bowl, melt remaining 1 oz. of candy. Add a drop or two of green food coloring and stir to combine. Drizzle over the popcorn pieces. Let the popcorn set up for about 20 minutes before diving in…if you can wait that long. Store in an airtight container. ENJOY!
