Movie Snack Cookies
Popcorn and M&Ms in a cookie might sound like the creation of a stoner with a wicked case of the munchies, but it's actually pretty good. I mostly stole this recipe from the Smitten Kitchen cookbook, which has been my bible for the past few months. After making these cookies a few times I decided they needed chocolate, so I added M&Ms. These babies are a great take-along for Movies-in-the-Park, plus it's always nice to take credit for how surprisingly delicious they are. My biggest suggestion is not to use microwave popcorn, because it's gross.
You will need the following
4 c popped popcorn (drizzled with butter)
1-1/4 c flour
1 stick butter
1/2 c brown sugar
1/3 c white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 packs M&Ms
Step 1: Pop popcorn accordingly. Drizzle with butter and salt. Try to remove all the leftover kernels so nobody breaks a tooth.
Step 2: Preheat oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients. Cream butter with sugars, vanilla and egg. Mix dry with wet. Add popcorn in small handfuls and finally M&Ms.
Step 3: Scoop chilled dough with a tablespoon onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool 5 minutes on baking sheet.
