Oreo Cookie Popcorn
Oreo Cookies are THE most popular store-bought cookie in America. That is pretty impressive for a cookie that first came on the market over a hundred years ago in 1912. But maybe not surprising since Oreo Cookies are a very yummy guilty pleasure! They were a natural mix-in for our Sweet and Salty Popcorn series and so we’d like to introduce our newest popcorn recipe — Oreo Cookie Popcorn — and boy is it delicious.
How to Make Oreo Cookie Popcorn
You will need:
- 10 Cups of Popped Popcorn
- 3 tbsp. Butter (Sweet Cream, Salted)
- 3 cups Mini Marshmallows
- Mini Oreo Cookies
Start with approximately 10 cups of popcorn. Make sure you get out all of the un-popped kernels. You don’t want to bite down on one of those! We pop our popcorn on the stove (you can find our directions on How to Make Perfect Popcorn here) but you can use air-popped or microwave. Once you have the popcorn made, salt it liberally. It is so nice to taste the salty with the sweet marshmallow coating. Not quite like Kettle Corn but close.
To make the Marshmallow Mixture for the Oreo Cookie Popcorn, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a medium sauce pan. Once the butter is melted, add 3 cups of mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are melted. Turn off the heat as soon as the last marshmallow has melted.
For our Oreo Cookie Popcorn we bought a bag of Oreo Minis. Break apart some of the Mini Oreos – we used about a cup of Oreo pieces in our popcorn. We did it by hand and broke each cookie into 2 or 3 pieces. We didn’t want a lot of cookie dust mixed in our popcorn so that is why we didn’t use a rolling pin or a food processor.
Toss the Oreo pieces in with the popcorn.
Slowly pour the marshmallow mixture over the popcorn and the Oreo Cookie pieces. Gently fold the marshmallow mixture in with the popcorn until the popcorn is mostly covered.
The amount of marshmallow mixture you want to add is really up to your own taste. The more you add, the stickier the popcorn will be so we suggest that you add it a bit at a time, stir the popcorn and give it a taste before you add more.
Now pour the Oreo Cookie Popcorn onto a cookie sheet covered with foil or a silpat liner.
Now it is time to add a few more whole Mini Oreo cookies. Don’t wait too long after you pour the popcorn onto the cookie sheet. You want the marshmallow mixture to still be warm and sticky. Toss the whole Mini Oreo cookies onto the popcorn. Allow the Oreo Cookie Popcorn to cool. Break apart into pieces and serve.
Our family loves this popcorn so it has never lasted longer than a day at our house. This popcorn definitely tastes best right after it is made but will keep for a few days in an airtight container. The popcorn is a little chewier the next day because it absorbs some of the moisture from the marshmallow mixture but it still tastes good.
Our Oreo Cookie Popcorn is a fun and delicious party treat. And it is so easy to make. Your family will beg you to make it again and again!
