Gimme "Samoa" That Popcorn

My daughter, Isabella, is a Girl Scout. You know what that means....Girl Scout cookies!!! Even though I am watching what I eat, I had to buy some Girl Scout cookies to support her troop. The girls have their next meeting on Friday and each girl was asked to make a recipe using Girl Scout cookies. I woke up this morning and knew what I was going to make. It was almost as if I had dreamt about it because I had never thought of this during my waking hours!

Gimme "Samoa" That Popcorn

  • 1 bag microwaveable popcorn (I used Smartpop 94% fat free...we'll add lots of fat later)
  • 10 Samoa Girl Scout Cookies, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips + 1 tablespoon crisco
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips + 1 teaspoon crisco
Pop the popcorn in the microwave and dump it into a nice big bowl. Make sure you sift through and remove any unpopped kernels...you would NOT want to accidentally bite into one later!

Cut up the Samoa cookies and mix them up with the popcorn.

Melt the butterscotch chips with 1 tablespoon crisco in the microwave for 1 minute, remove and stir. Continue to melt in 30 second increments and stir until the mixture is smooth. You only want to do this until it is just melted, otherwise it could seize up and get lumpy.

Spoon the mixture over the popcorn/Samoa mixture and stir with two spoons until all the popcorn is coated with the butterscotch chips.

Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Spread the popcorn on the paper in an even layer.

Melt the chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon crisco in the microwave for 1 minute and then stir. Continue melting in 30 second increments until it is smooth. Spoon the chocolate into a ziplock bag and snip a tiny corner off the bag. Drizzle the chocolate over the top of the popcorn. Put the baking sheet in the fridge and let it set. When the chocolate hardens you can take it out of the fridge and break the popcorn up into pieces.
