This Cookies & Cream Popcorn is so crunchy, chocolatey and delicious! It’s the ultimate sweet-and-salty snack.

You should know by now that I really, really, really love popcorn. I definitely get it from my grandmother.

From time to time, I even have social media conversations with friends who love popcorn as much as I do. (I have another good friend who despises it, though, so I don’t discriminate. All levels of popcorn love are welcome here.)

Thus, in planning the Bright Blog Bash, popcorn had to be included. My friend Amy (one of those popcorn-loving friends) had told me about a dessert popcorn she makes with almond bark and Oreos, so I asked her for the recipe. Boy, is it amazing.

I elaborated on Amy’s recipe a bit and ended up with this amazing Cookies + Cream Popcorn, which I served alongside my Sea Salt Caramel Popcorn at the party. 

The two kinds of popcorn were a great combination of sweet and salty, soft and crunchy. They fit in nicely with the black and white and gold color scheme, too.

Perhaps dessert popcorn is a bit of an unconventional thing to serve at a party, but I’d recommend giving this Cookies + Cream Popcorn a try.

You can divvy it up into cello bags, tie them up with sparkly ribbons and give the popcorn as tasty holiday gifts. Y

ou could also use peppermint Oreos, gluten-free Oreos or another kind of cookie all-together for something a little different.

However you do it, it’s pretty moreish, so you’d be the hero of your office. Just sayin’. // susannah

ingredients

  • ½ cup uncooked popcorn kernels OR 10 cups plain popped popcorn
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup 6 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 1 package Oreo cookies I used gluten-free Joe-Joe’s from Trader Joe’s
  • pinch of salt

instructions

Make the popcorn.

  • In a medium saucepan, bring oil to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often.
  • Add popcorn kernels in a single layer and cover saucepan with a lid. When the popcorn begins to pop (after about 2-3 minutes), shake the pot over the heat for about 3 minutes, until popping slows. Remove from heat immediately and let cool.

Make cookies and cream mixture.

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the popcorn out in a single layer.
  • In a glass, microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate chips for 20 seconds on 50% heat. Stir. Repeat until white chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Be careful not to overheat.
  • While chocolate is heating, place cookies in a gallon zip-lock bag and smash them with a rolling pin until you have large broken chunks.
  • Spread cookie crumbles over the popcorn, then drizzle with the white chocolate. Gently stir to combine evenly.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt. Let the popcorn cool on the pan. If desired, break apart any large clusters. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

notes

Since originally publishing this recipe, I discovered a better way to pop popcorn kernels in the microwave. Check out the recommended products section to see my favorite silicone, microwave popcorn bowl. I fill the kernels to the bottom line and then cook on High for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. It's always perfect.
