Cookies and Cream Popcorn

Cookies and Cream Popcorn
I have been seeing some pretty amazing looking homemade gourmet popcorn going around the food blogging sphere for a while now and I have always wanted to try my hands at making some! With the holiday season here I was thinking that specialty popcorn would make for some spectacular gifts, I mean who wouldn't be happy to receive a bag of this as a gift! On the top of my list of popcorns to try was a cookies and cream popcorn that I came across on Chef in Training a while ago. This popcorn basically takes the idea of cookies and cream and turns it into popcorn by attaching crumbled bits of oreo cookies to the popcorn with melted creamy white chocolate. The next best thing about this popcorn is how easy it is to make! You just need to mix the popped popcorn with the crumbled cookies along with the melted white chocolate and then wait for the chocolate to set again. You could be enjoying a bowl of this wonderful popcorn in less than a half an hour with less than 10 minutes of effort!

Looks great, Kevin! I agree about "gourmet popcorn" going around the food blogging sphere, but it makes a fabulous gift for friends. Personally, I ate my recipe while watching vintage Christmas films. It was so fun! Thanks for sharing this "Cookies and Cream" version. I look forward to trying some myself! Happy Holidays! Hallie
