Thin Mint Cookie Popcorn...




If you love Girl Scout Cookies as much as I do, and popcorn, you'll love this tasty treat I've whipped up.

It takes absolutely no time at all. 

The local Girl Scout Troop were selling their famous cookies right outside the grocery store where I like to shop. How could I pass them up? There was no way I was NOT going to buy some of that deliciousness. 


Our family favorites are Thin Mints and Samoas. When we get these cookies in the house they are gone within days. 




I love throwing together recipes using popcorn as an ingredient, because it is so versatile. You can pretty much add anything to it and it will turn out fabulous!

When making this popcorn treat, I did use green gel coloring to color the white chocolate morsels, but it really didn't show up once I mixed in the crushed cookies, so I have it in the recipe as an optional ingredient.

Dress up your popcorn with some Thin Mints...... do it!


Thin Mint Cookie Popcorn

  • 10 Cups White Popcorn, Popped
  • 1 (12 oz) Bag of White Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 Sleeve of Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies
  • Green Gel Coloring (Optional)
Place the popcorn into a very large bowl (making sure there are no kernels) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set both aside.

Crush the cookies in a large zip lock bag, then set aside. In a double boiler, melt the morsels. Cool the melted morsels a few minutes. If using gel coloring, add a small amount of the gel coloring and stir until incorporated. 

Working quickly, pour the melted morsels over the popcorn, stirring to coat. Add the crushed cookies, also stirring to coat. Pour the popcorn mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, as evenly as possible and set aside to set. If you are in a rush, you can place the popcorn in the refrigerator to set. Break apart into pieces and serve.

*I love Girl Scout Cookies, and wanted to incorporate them into a recipe. I am not paid to endorse any of their products.


Enjoy!
