On Thursday we had some friends over for a game night. Since I have an obsession with making yummy popcorn, it’s my go-to snack when I want something sweet. Here’s my new popcorn (and instructions on how to make it):
I was going through my pantry and realized that I had a bunch of these mini oreos that I needed to use.
So I decided to make some oreo popcorn. I used 3 of these mini bags for the oreos, but you could use regular oreos also. I’m interested to try it with mint oreos and may do that next.
My husband bought this wonderful mini chopper for me for Christmas, and it was definitely worth the money. (especially since my husband hates chunks of tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc). I poured the oreos in and started chopping them up. You could also put them in a ziploc bag and smash them that way too.
I ended up with about 3/4 cup smashed oreos. I tried to leave some bigger pieces, but at the same time you don’t want them to be too big so they won’t stick to the popcorn.
You want to pop your popcorn next. If you are using an air popper, I did 3/4 cup unpopped kernels. If you are using microwave- I would say it is equal to 2-2.5 bags.
Next, I melted the chocolate. You can use white chocolate chips or vanilla almond bark. Since I had Almond bark on hand and think it’s easier to melt, that’s what I used. I used 3 cubes. Once it’s melted, pour it into the popcorn and mix it up.
And immediately pour in the Oreos. Mix well and try to resist eating it all now. I would recommend spreading it onto a cookie sheet with wax paper for the chocolate to harden. It’s not necessary, but that’s what I did.
I made two batches of this and by the end of the night it was basically gone. I would definitely make it again and would love to hear what you think if you try it!
