We are always ready to eat something cookies and cream inspired. Always! So this popcorn was the perfect snack mix for our last get together. It is a fun mix of salty, sweet, chocolaty goodness. Set it out in small bowls around your gathering space and people are sure to munch on it until it’s gone.

I first made this cookies and cream popcorn almost 5 years ago.  We through a Cracker Jacks themed party for Little Dude’s first birthday party.

chopped up bits of oreos on cutting board.

We had a popcorn maker and a table full of fun flavored popcorn.  Of course the birthday boy was too young to enjoy any of it, but he got his own cake so he made out ok.

Besides, I figured I only had so many years where I got to choose things like birthday party themes and Halloween costumes. So I had to make sure and get all of my favorite ideas in before he got a say!

Luckily he is still pretty amenable to my ideas, but he also has a say now. I can’t just take whatever crazy theme I want and run with it.

The cookies and cream popcorn was a hit at that party, so I knew I was going to have to make it again.  Plus my little sister had requested it a few times since, but I haven’t had a chance to post it here yet.

So when we had a crew over to watch the big game, I figured it would be a perfect time to whip up another batch to share.  Little Dude helped me get it ready and then put it in various popcorn themed containers and placed it around the room.

He wasn’t so sure it was a good use for the chocolate sandwich cookies.  He thought we should just save those for ourselves and dunk them in milk… you know, the way they are supposed to be enjoyed.

Then he took a bite and his mind instantly changed. It turns out the popcorn idea wasn’t such a bad one after all. Who would have guessed?

So make this fun popcorn mix for your next party and see how well it goes over! Let me know what you think.
