Popcorn Cookies


Popcorn Cookies

In honor of National Popcorn Day today,I thought it was only appropriate to whip up a batch of these totally unique cookies. As strange and different as they may sound, they are definitely worth a try to make. It’s the whole “don’t judge a book by its cover” deal. Anyhoo, these would be perfect for a movie party {the Oscars, perhaps?} or any time you need a little pick-me up. They are easy to make, so you should be done in a half-hour or so. To switch it up a little, my sister suggested that we drizzle chocolate over them. Everything is better with chocolate, right?! :)
