Not your average chocolate chip cookies, these come packed with crunchy caramel popcorn.
Some desserts are just so brilliant, that you almost want to smack yourself in the head and think “of course! why didn’t I think of that?”. The buttered popcorn cookies from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is one such recipe for me. One of my most favorite snacks, baked into a cookie. Genius!
Only, when I finally got around to baking a batch, I couldn’t leave it alone. So I added chocolate chips. And crunchy caramel popcorn.
And my tinkering paid off! These cookies are fabulous and incredibly addicting, so bake with caution. I love how the caramel popcorn enhances the butterscotch flavor of the cookies and the added texture is so fun. Some kernels seem to melt into the cookie, leaving behind a pocket of flavor. Others hold their shape and give a little crunch.
Who knew it would be so fun to bake with popcorn?
