Cookies & Cream Popcorn have a delicious crunch contrasted by a smooth richness from the chocolate. Perfect addition to watching a movie!
Last week I posted a technique for popping popcorn on the stove-top. Today’s recipe is a sweet, sweet way to use that popped popcorn. I actually got the idea when I saw a bag of cookies and cream popcorn in the store. It was a 7 ounce bag for $8… I could definitely make that at home for much cheaper. You can too!
By the way, I just realized that I surpassed 300 posts a few days ago. Yay! That’s a lot of food, rundowns, recipes, and photos. Thanks to anyone and everyone who reads this blog, you have no idea how much each subscriber, comment, and page view means to me. Here’s to 300 more posts.

How to make Cookies & Cream Popcorn
