Popcorn is a staple in my house. Now I may occasionally run out of milk and bread, but you can be sure that somewhere in my kitchen there is always popcorn. Growing up my parents loved popcorn and so I have so many amazing childhood memories associated with popcorn. Like I remember piling into the car, before seat belts were required, and heading to the drive-in movie theater with our snacks already in the car.

One of the best treats of the whole outing is that my mom would always pop enough popcorn to fill a brown paper grocery bag and everyone would take turns holding the bag while each one of us would reach our hands into the bag of buttery delicious popcorn while enjoying a movie on the big screen.

I will also never forget the time that I stumbled upon a container of rainbow popcorn kernels in the supermarket and for weeks I begged my mom to buy it even though she warned me that it would just make regular popcorn because only the kernels were dyed those colors.

But me being the young persistent child that I was, of course, I had to see this for myself and so my mom finally gave in one day and purchased the over-priced rainbow popcorn kernels, took them home, and popped them. And do you know what happened? My mom was right and those beautifully colored popcorn kernels turn into regular ole popcorn. I was SO disappointed and I never asked for her to buy that popcorn ever again.

Did I still eat the popcorn after my disappointment you may ask? Of course, I did! No point in wasting some perfectly good popcorn. Right? But did you know that the month of October is National Popcorn Poppin’ Month? So, of course, I had to share a yummy recipe with you and even though original buttery popcorn is great, there are so many other quick and easy ways that you can dress up your popcorn and make it your very own before the month ends.

This recipe for cookies and cream popcorn incorporates chocolate sandwich cookies and melted white chocolate to make a salty, sweet, and crunchy popcorn recipe that everyone is sure to love.

    Wow!!!! That looks delicious. I never think about making my popcorn sweet. I always make it salty when I pop it at home. But this recipe would be a delicious treat.

      I love salty savory popcorn as well, but every now and then sweet popcorn is a nice treat 🙂

    I made this once and it was AWESOME.
    Popcorn is a staple here too. We often run out of milk or eggs but if we run out of popcorn, I want to cry.
