Popcorn Chocolate Chip Cookies

*I used a popcorn brand, which is already sweetened, but if you’re using another brand or butter popcorn you may want to increase the sugar content.
Makes a dozen
  • 1/4 cup/57.5g unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup/47.5g of light muscovado sugar*
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 87g of your favourite plain/AP flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • a dash/1/8 tsp of sea salt
  • 2 cups/40g of your favourite popcorn
  • 1/4 cup/40g chopped dark chocolate

Using the paddle attachment, cream the butter and muscovado sugar in your Kitchen Aid for about 3 minutes until light and fluffy.

Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.

Change the setting to low.  Add the flour, baking soda and sea salt and beat on low until combined.

Remove the bowl and use a spatula to fold in the popcorn. You may start freaking out and think there’s way too much popcorn in here for this to work, but it will! Trust me 🙂

Fold in the dark chocolate.

Heap about a 1/3 of a cup of mixture onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Make sure they are space wide apart because the mixture can spread a lot.

Refrigerate overnight.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C/ 350°Cfor 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown

Leave to cool, they are quite soft when first baked but harden and hold their shape better once cooled.
