Popcorn Chocolate Chip Cookies

 Say what?? You’re putting popcorn in perfectly good chocolate chip cookies?? Well you have to understand something: my family LOVES popcorn. We try to have popcorn for dinner at least once a week. And when you get the chance to combine popcorn and cookies can you really pass that up? I think not.

You know those flavors that just go together? Peanut butter and jelly, hot tea and honey, apples and caramel. Well it’s time to add popcorn and chocolate to this list. Seriously delish. Make them. You can thank me later 🙂

Popcorn Chocolate Chip Cookies (found here)
2 T Oil
1 T Butter, melted
1/4 C Unpopped Popcorn Kernels
1/4 t Salt
1/2 C Butter, softened
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1/3 C White Sugar
1 Egg
1 t Vanilla
1 1/4 C Flour
1/2 t Baking Powder
1/4 t Salt
1/2 C Chocolate Chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then pop the popcorn. You can do this multiple ways, the easiest being with a popcorn popper. If you don’t have one you can pop it in a brown bag in the microwave or in a skillet on the stove. After the popcorn is popped (using the kernels, oil, butter, and 1/4 t salt) set it aside. In a mixer, mix together the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla. Add the flour, baking powder and 1/4 t salt until just combined. Fold in the popcorn. It will seem really uneven at first but keep stirring; the popcorn breaks down. Now fold in the chocolate chips. Drop on greased or covered cookie sheets by the spoonful and bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes. Let them cool for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire cooling rack. Enjoy!
