Ingredients in OREO Popcorn
-Popcorn: Air popped popcorn is the best kind to use while making flavored popcorn recipes because it is straight up, unapologetic unbuttered popcorn. You’ll want unbuttered popcorn so the chocolate sticks to the popcorn and doesn’t just slide off. If you don’t have an air popper on hand- look for a microwave bag of the all natural, unbuttered popcorn.
-Oreos: We will want both Oreo crumbs and broken up whole cookies, so grab an entire package while you are at the store.
-White Chocolate: You can use white almond bark if you’d like, but white chocolate chips work just as well.
How to make Cookies and Cream Popcorn
Making Oreo popcorn is a really easy and simple process.
First, we will start with popped, unbuttered popcorn. Remove any un-popped kernels.
Next, cover the popcorn in melted white chocolate before tossing Oreo crumbs all over the chocolate covered popcorn.
Lastly, lay the popcorn out on some parchment paper, add some Oreo cookie pieces and then drizzle everything with white chocolate.
Allow for the white chocolate to harden before breaking into pieces and serving.
- 9 cups popped popcorn
- 3/4 cup oreo cookie crumbs
- 10 oreos broken into pieces
- 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips divided
- Pop and measure the popped popcorn into a large bowl, removing any unpopped kernels. Place about 15 Oreo cookies in a quart sized bag and smash using a jar, the flat side of a meat tenderizer or a rolling pin. Set aside.
- In a microwave safe bowl, melt 1 cup of the white chocolate for about 1 minute 15 seconds. Let chocolate sit for 2 minutes, then gently stir. If it's not completely melted yet, return to the microwave in 15 second intervals, letting it sit for 1-2 minutes in between. Go slow- you don't want to seize your chocolate!
- Pour the white chocolate over the popcorn and stir to evenly coat the popcorn in chocolate.
- Grab the bag of crushed Oreos and, holding the bag closed most of the way, sprinkle the oreo cookie crumbs & smallest pieces over the popcorn. Gently stir until the popcorn is coated in cookie crumbs.
- Spread the popcorn out onto parchment paper and sprinkle with remaining Oreo pieces.
- Melt the remaining 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips and then drizzle over the top of the popcorn.
- Allow the chocolate to set up before serving.
How to easily remove un-popped Popcorn Kernels
My favorite way to do this is to pour your popped popcorn onto a cookie cooling rack. All of the big, popped popcorn will stay on top while all of the kernels will fall through the holes.
Just set your cookie cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet to catch all of the extra kernels. There is nothing worse than finding a hard kernel in your popcorn!
How to store dessert Popcorns
Storage is something that is so important when it comes to popcorn. If it is left in a bowl, uncovered, the popcorn will quickly become stale. Which we do not want! Don’t just leave it in a bowl! The best way to store your popcorn and keep it fresh is by putting it into large zip-top bags and removing as much air as possible from the top.
