Today I am going to share my new favorite snack recipe with you. I found it on Pinterest, and it is a definite do (unless you’re on a diet, then it’s a definite don’t because you will not be able to say no to it. You’ve been warned.)
It is so easy and pretty too. I think I might give some away for Christmas. Act surprised if you get it, okay?
This is the official recipe from the blog, Chef In Training. Nikki has loads of great recipes that you should check out, but this one was the one I was thankful for a couple of days back in my FB status. Sorry, Nikki, I was mostly joking when I also mentioned I wanted to slap you for inventing this snack crack. It has ruined all my efforts to lose weight, but let’s be honest, who tries to lose weight over Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas anyway. Masochists, that’s who.
Back on task…
THE Cookies and Cream Popcorn
2 bags of Healthy Pop White popcorn by Jiffy, popped
20-ish Oreos, finely crushed
24 oz White Almond Bark, melted in the microwave according to the directions on the back of the package
- Line 2 cookie sheets with Parchment or wax paper.
- Pour the popcorn into a bowl. Transfer it to another huge bowl leaving the unpopped kernels behind while you’re melting the almond bark.
- Pour 1/2 of melted bark onto the popcorn and toss. Pour on the rest and toss.
- Pour on 1/2 of the crushed Oreos; toss. Pour on the rest and toss.
- Spread the popcorn out on the 2 baking sheets while the almond bark sets up.
This is a photo of it from “the party that wasn’t” last weekend.
I wish I had a better photo of just it by itself, but I didn’t know this was going to be my next post
and now this is all that’s left.. There were 2 gallon bags full 3 days ago.
I don’t dare make anymore right now just for a photo because I might abandon all reason and eat it for breakfast with my coffee in front of the computer instead of eating my good girl greek yogurt and “training” for my first 5K next week.
Which brings me to my last thought on this matter. If you do manage to get some of this from me as a gift next month, consider it a real Christmas miracle because I promise the entire way from my house to yours I will be dreaming of ripping open the packaging and double fisting it into my mouth. Sharing it may ultimately be too much for me.
