Cookies and cream popcorn -a delicious and easy no bake dessert or snack that can be made in 10 minutes or less with only 3 ingredients! You won’t be able to put it down!

One of my families favorite summer traditions is to have movie nights on the weekends with popcorn. We love the classic butter popcorn, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up a little bit and do more of a dessert popcorn. My kids absolutely love oreos, and we don’t buy them very often… but when we do I find there’s always a few that break. We usually put those ones in a bag and build up a supply of cookie crumbs. Those are perfect for this cookies & cream popcorn.

How to make white chocolate popcorn with crushed oreos

This recipe is so simple (you can find the printable copy below). All you need is freshly popped popcorn (sometimes we’ll even use skinny pop to save on time). Then we like to melt candiquik or almond bark to coat the popcorn. And then of course the oreos will go on top. YUM!

Whenever we make white chocolate to melt over the popcorn I prefer using vanilla candiquik, almond bark or candy melts (the ghirardelli brand). They melt quickly and smoothly in the microwave and coat the popcorn perfectly. I find if I try melting white chocolate chips it gets clumpy on the popcorn. No good.

I also like to use the regular oreos for this recipe. For whatever reason, they just stick better. :)

Mmm look at that chocolate goodness. Now I’ve got the snack munchies… which is not a good sign, since it’s already after 10pm. I better sign off and get this post scheduled!
