Ingredients You’ll Need

Here are the four ingredients you’ll need to make this Oreo popcorn:

Ingredients for Oreo popcorn on a countertop
  • Oreos: This is Oreo popcorn, so don’t be shy on the amount of Oreos you use! I like to chop the delicious cookies to get a mix of Oreo crumbs and chunks. The crumbs will stick to the popcorn, while the chunks will give a delicious crunch. Be sure to use gluten-free Oreos if you want this recipe to be gluten-free.
  • White chocolate chips: White chocolate chips add great flavor and help the Oreos stick to the popcorn. You could also add semi-sweet chocolate drizzle or melted white almond bark, if you prefer.
  • Popcorn: I highly recommend using popcorn kernels rather than microwave popcorn for all of my popcorn recipes. I’m using white corn kernels, but feel free to use any kind of dried popcorn that you like. White corn just makes for brighter white Oreo popcorn!
  • Salt: Salt helps balance out the sweetness of the white chocolate and Oreos. I like to use kosher salt, but sea salt will also work for this Oreo popcorn.

How to Make Oreo Popcorn

Popcorn in a pot
  • If you have an air popper, add the kernels to the machine and pop according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • If you don’t have an air popper, heat a large nonstick pot over medium heat until warm. Add the kernels and immediately cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid. Gently shake the pot every 5 seconds until the first kernels begin to pop. Then continue shaking the pot until popping is 5 seconds apart.
  • Immediately remove the popcorn from the heat and pour it onto a rimmed baking sheet. (Feel free to line with parchment paper, if you’d like.)
White chocolate in a mixing bowl
  • Place 1 ½ cups of white chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 second intervals, stirring between each one, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

  • Drizzle the white chocolate evenly over the popcorn and then sprinkle over the remaining white chocolate chips, chopped oreos, and salt.
  • Allow the Oreo popcorn to sit at room temperature until the white chocolate is set– about 30 minutes. Then break the Oreo popcorn into clusters. Store in a container until ready to eat the Oreo popcorn.

FAQs

Is there such A thing AS Oreo popcorn?

Yes, Oreo popcorn is a type of gourmet popcorn that you can make at home or buy at the grocery store from brands like Candy Pop. It’s typically made with popcorn, white chocolate or chocolate drizzle, and Oreo crumbles. The sweet and salty combination is hard to resist!

Who invented Oreo popcorn?

It’s hard to say who originally came up with the idea for Oreo popcorn, since people have been making unique popcorn combinations for decades. However, some trace the idea of Oreo popcorn to Frank Florio, the founder of Candy Pop brand. Florio said he had the idea for the company when he added Oreos to his popcorn in 2015. He founded Candy Pop shortly thereafter and introduced Oreo popcorn at a food tradeshow in 2016.

Is Oreo popcorn Vegetarian?

Oreo popcorn is vegetarian, but it isn’t vegan. It’s made from popcorn kernels, white chocolate chips, sea salt, and Oreos — which contain ingredients derived from animal products.

Expert Tips & Tricks

  • I like to chop the Oreos to get a mix of crumbs and chunks. The crumbs will stick to the popcorn, while the chunks will give a delicious crunch. Be sure to use gluten-free Oreos if you want this recipe to be gluten-free.
  • I usually chop the Oreos with a large knife, but you could also use a food processor (just be sure to pulse a couple times, and stop before it turns into crumbs!) or a rolling pin to crush the cookies.
  • Feel free to add a semi-sweet chocolate drizzle or mini chocolate chips to this Oreo popcorn, if you’d like! There are lots of ways to get creative with this recipe!

  • It’s normal to have some un-popped kernels in your batch of Oreo popcorn. You can remove them before drizzling the white chocolate, if you’d like. Or just eat around the kernels!
