This quick and easy dessert is both simple and delicious. Perfect for a make-ahead treat, and kids love it! Recipe source: adapted from Handle the Heat
Serves: approximately 10-12 servings
4 cups popped popcorn (any flavor you like, I usually use plain)
8 ounces Almond Bark or white chocolate
¼ cup mini chocolate chips
15 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped
Pop the popcorn, and pour into a large bowl. Take care to remove unpopped kernels.
Chop the Oreo cookies into large pieces, and pour into the bowl with the popcorn. Mix well to combine.
Pour mixture on to a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top of the mixture.
Melt the white chocolate/almond bark according to package directions (heat in microwave for 30 seconds at a time, and stir until smooth. Don't over-heat or it will burn and sieze. You can also use a double boiler for this step.
Allow the melted chocolate to cool for a few minutes, but don't allow it to firm up again.
Pour melted chocolate over the top of the popcorn/cookie mixture.
Use two large spoons to stir the mixture until evenly coated with the melted chocolate. Spread into an even layer, and set aside for 15-20 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
Break into pieces, and serve.
