oreo popcorn

Popcorn is was my least favorite snack.

It was probably the last thing I would eat if I can’t find anything to munch on.

I usually find popcorn to be bland and tasteless and it leaves me thirsty.  I guess it might be different if you air pop the corn instead of using packets, which contains a lot of butter? Maybe.

Well today, something changed.  It’s not as dramatic as it sounds. Ha-Ha.  We have tons of Oreo’s at home and small carton of butter popcorn packages.  I decided to combine the two since I was really hungry after work-out.  I usually like drinking smoothie or eating homemade larabars as a post-workout snack, but today was different.  I got this sudden urge to crush some Oreos and mix it with popcorn.  I followed my desire to do so and to be honest I didn’t really feel guilty about eating it.  It was so delicious.

I think I kinda sorta changed my mind about popcorn being my least favorite snack.  I mean anything with chocolate and oreo’s is simply scrumptious.  I’m afraid I might get addicted to this unhealthy snack.

If you never had oreo popcorn before, you must try it.   Especially if you love Oreo’s.

I believe this will be great for parties, game nights, or casual get-together with family and friends.   Just triple the recipe to serve the crowd.
