Buttered Popcorn Chocolate chip Cookie

Buttered it.  Chocolate them.  Put them together into a cookie???  Ex-squeeze me??!!

Okay, I'm game.  Let's try these (even though hubbie has already pooh-poohed them...even though he hasn't tried them....and now he's making me doubt them).  For shame, hubby, for shame.

Popcorn has been popped.  And okay, maybe I am seeing the hubbie's point of view about popcorn not being fully popped and then it being hard to chew.  But I've carefully picked through all the popcorn to take out any un-popped and half popped kernels.
It's all good...even though I just took a few popcorn pieces and did indeed get a couple of tough bits.  But I'm forging on with this cookie recipe.  I need this to work out. (And not just because I wanna say, 'nah, nah told ya so', to my hubbie.  I wouldn't do that!  Truth?  I'd totally do that.  And am getting my 'told you so' pants on. (this in no way should imply I'm not wearing pants now.)

I just ate a bit of the cookie dough ('cause that's how I roll...and maybe why I roll....a little).  Anyhoo, am now picking popcorn bits out of my teeth.  Damn it.  This is not feeling like an, 'I told you so moment'.

Cookies have been baked and are cooling (fingers are crossed).  Kettle has been put on, 'cause really can you have a cookie without a cup of tea?  Probably.

Well, I have had my first cookie, and I think they're good!  The baking seems to have softened any hard bits of the popcorn.  I am loving the salty and sweet combination.  And I would have  never in a million years thought to put popcorn in a cookie!  It's crazy I tells ya....crazy good.  And hubbie?  He likes them too!  And he also thinks that if the popcorn was caramelized, it would be really good in the cookies.  Hmm...that is a good idea. 

I found this recipe on Joy the Baker's site.  Joy adapted the recipe from the Smitten Kitchen cookbook.  This book is now on my wish list.


  1. Daring kind of cookie. I like that!

  2. Wow, those look and sound great! I have to try them. I will be able to say I had a veggie (corn is a veggie to me!!). I love salty/sweet combos... I love that you tried them even if hubby was a nay sayer. My hubby may question a recipe also, but funny how the guy always comes out to the kitchen to eat it! ha ha.

  3. This sounds good. I guess I'm going to have to try it too! Maybe I won't tell anyone about the popcorn until they eat it. Wonder if they would notice?

  4. YUM! How clever! I'm going to try it too, caramelized popcorn would be amazing!
