Popcorn is so good all on its own.  In fact, if it were up to me popcorn would be what was served for dinner most nights.

A big bowl of popcorn and an ice cold Diet Coke is dinner perfection in my book.

The only thing that could make popcorn better is adding it to a cookie.

Every single bite of this cookie will have you wanting more, so make a batch of Caramel Corn Cookies for yourself.

How to make a Carmel Corn Cake Mix Cookie

Begin by adding the cake mix {I used a Yellow Butter mix}, eggs and melted butter to a bowl and combine.

I like to use a hand held mixer so that everything mixes together nicely.

The cookie dough will be wonderful and thick.

Now it is time to add the very best part!  POPCORN!

I used microwave extra-butter popcorn because everything is better with butter.

Add about 1 cup of buttered popcorn to the dough.

Make sure that you break the popcorn down into smaller pieces so that it stirs in nicely.

Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop mounds of dough onto a silicone {or parchment} lined baking sheet.

How fun is it to have POPCORN in your cookies?

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 9-11 minutes or until the cookies are set.

It is so important to not over bake your cookies.  Remove them from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet.

About 2 minutes after you remove the cookies from the oven, press 2 large kernels of popcorn into the top of each cookie.

I am living by the idea that the more popcorn you have…the better.

Once the cookies are completely cooled, drizzle them generously with salted caramel.

I used caramel that I purchased from the ice cream section of the grocery store.

These just might be one of the most fun cookies I have made to date and they were certainly a family favorite.

If caramel corn isn’t your thing then change it up with a popcorn you love and enjoy every bite.

What other Kinds of Popcorn can I use for these Caramel Corn Cookies?

  • Cheddar Popcorn – it would create a super unique and fun flavor combination
  • Kettle Corn – such a natural option because of its sweetness
  • Butter Toffee – this would be great and you could skip the caramel drizzle and add chocolate
