Say Hello to Your New Addiction: Popcorn Inspired by Girl Scouts Cookies

If you tend to cave at the grocery store and buy more Girl Scout cookies than you care to admit, you’re not alone. As a former Girl Scout, I have a hard time saying no to those eager faces. I usually stick with Thin Mints, although the occasional Samoa (the one boasting chocolate, caramel and coconut with a little hole in the center) can be a treat. This Samoa-inspired popcorn recipe is evidence that the flavors translate well to other recipes, too. 

What I love about this recipe is the use of both shredded coconut and coconut oil, the latter imparting its subtle sweet fragrance (along with a little sugar) into the popcorn itself. Toss in a little salt and chocolate, and this is looking to be my go-to snack all summer long. I imagine it would be wonderful with a handful of chopped nuts as well — hazelnuts would be my first choice although peanuts would likely be delicious, too. Now enough writing: it’s time to make some popcorn!
