Banana’s and cookie butter is my new favorite! I will forewarn you that today’s recipe is HIGHLY addictive! I could not keep my hands out of the bowl.

This recipe really is so easy to make and I promise you the cookie butter makes ALL the difference. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, it is on Amazon… but a bit more pricey. It may be worth it though. ;)

Cookie butter popcorn recipe -easy to make and completely addictive!



  • 16 cups popcorn (air popped plain popcorn, I did 1/2 cup seeds + 1 TB oil)
  • 16 oz candy coating (1 package, Kroger vanilla candy coating or candyquik)
  • 3 tbsp cookie butter (found at Trader Joes … Biscoff or Peanut butter will work too)
  • 1/2 cup candy melts (colored)
  • 1/2 cup M&M's
  • Optional: Sprinkles


  1. Pop your popcorn and place in a large bowl. Next melt your vanilla candy coating in the microwave according to the package directions. Then add the cookie butter to the melted chocolate.

  2. Stir until combined. Drizzle the coating over the popcorn. Stir until evenly coated. Mix in m&m’s and then spread out on wax paper.

  3. Melt your colored candy melts in the microwave and then drizzle on top of the popcorn. You can always add a few drops of food coloring to white chocolate chips as well.

  4. Top with sprinkles. Enjoy!

  1. OH, MY GOSH! Cool — I have to make this for my popcorn loving sweet daughter! She just loves popcorn and will flip over this! Thanks for posting!

  2. My mother-in-law found the cookie butter on a trip to TJ. It is some tasty stuff! The ‘cookie butter popcorn’ sounds like it is right on the verge of being sinful ;) It does look like an excellent Easter treat to bag up and give away.

  3. I just need a Trader Joe’s near me :( Will have to try it with biscoff!

  4. Ha! I’ve never heard of this but you better believe I’m getting some very soon! The popcorn looks ah-mazing. Thank you!

  5. I can’t wait to try this, we can’t use m&me because of food allergies but I want to try mini eggs instead :) thank you for this recipe

  6. what is candy quick.

  7. Does anyone know if I can use plain pre popped, microwave or jiffy pop? I do not have an air popper and my pots are very heavy (not about to do the old school shake a pot method).

  8. It looks delightful! I don’t live near a Trader Joes and I have never heard of Bishcoff. Describe a little what the two products are and how they differ from plain peanut butter. Thanks.

  9. I can’t wait to try this! I LOVE TJ’s Cookie Butter!

  10. This looks so magical. Like unicorns created it and sprinkled it with sparkles. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Hi! I stumbled upon this while looking for candy recipes for Christmas. I’m from the Philippines and I don’t think we have candiquick here. What would be a good alternative that I can use? Will white chocolate work? Thanks!

  12. This looks AMAZING!!!!!!!!! I really want to make this as a craft at a cooking clinic with about 8 girls. How much popcorn do you think I will need? thanks!

  13. If you cannot find cookie butter, look for Biscoff spread. It is available at most major retailers/grocery stores and is the original cookie butter.

  14. Amazing! This is so good! I am making this for a baby shower (using blue candies!), but wanted to test out today, so I made it Valentine’s Day inspired. I only had 12oz. white chocolate and it was plenty to coat the popcorn.

  15. Re: popcorn with cookie butter recipe, did you salt the popcorn? Ty.

  16. I bet this would be good with rice chex too as a type of chex mix!

  17. Is there a difference between the candy coating and the candy melts? Could you just use alot of candu melts instead?

    Does the Biscoff keep the candy coating or chocolate from setting up properly? I made some, and the candy coating is still sticky soft.

  19. OMG made this today! Just amazing!!! Thank you!

  20. Can’t wait to try something new and Eggciting!!!!

    My popcorn went soggy and didn’t set at all. :(

  22. So does 1/2 cup seeds make 16 cups popcorn!? Sorry a little lost. Thanks in advance.

  23. Ahhh, this looks like the perfect afternoon desk snack! Sharing :)

  24. Do you put it in the fridge to set? I just finished making it and its still sticky.  How long should it sit before it hardens?

  25. do we have such a thing in Canada?

    • Hi Heather! I’m not sure if they sell cookie butter in Canada but they probably sell Biscoff Spread. It will be at the grocery store near the peanut butter. :)

  26. Gotta try that cookie butter popcorn with my granddaughter!! Thank you!!

  27. I used a 12 oz. package of white chocolate chips & pre-popped kettle corn & also put broken pretzel sticks. Worked great

  28. How far in advance can the cookie butter popcorn be made?
     I want to make it for my daughter’s birthday so I’m trying to plan. ahead.

  29. What are candy melts?  I will go to TJ’s tomorrow, for the cookie butter, which I’ve also never heard of.  I can’t believe I’m the only one who doesn’t know what candy melts are!

  30. Thank you for the popcorn recipe. I will make it very soon. It sounds and looks yummy.

  31. In Canada I’ve never seen cookie butter….nor have I ever heard of it before? Can it be bought in grocery stores in the USA? If so next time I’m over the border I’m buying some!

  32. This looks and sounds good
