Most of us think of popcorn as a delicious snack food, but we’ve learned that it can also be an excellent dessert. Whether using popcorn as a main ingredient or a topping for a popular dessert such as brownies, there’s something here for everyone! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite popcorn dessert recipes:

  • Caramel Popcorn Brownies These chocolate brownies are drenched in caramel sauce and then topped with caramel popcorn. If you want different flavors, you can make one of the variations, instead. Basically, you can use the same technique but change the flavor of the sauce or the popcorn.
  • Popcorn Cake This popcorn cake is certainly a crowd pleaser! It’s made with popcorn, marshmallows, and candy pieces and has a unique texture. The only similarity to traditional cake is the way it’s shaped – but the flavors certainly don’t disappoint.
  • Popcorn Chocolate Chip Cookies What could be better than traditional chocolate chip cookies? These cookies take two of our favorite snacks – popcorn and chocolate chip cookies – and mix them together! The end result is a snack that has a subtle hint of popcorn without being too overpowering.
  • Popcorn Chocolate Truffles
    Did you know that popcorn tastes great as a truffle? This recipe uses a classic chocolate-making technique to mix melted chocolate and popcorn together to create an interesting truffle-like treat. You can use any flavor of popcorn you desire. Follow the recipe as is, or try some of the variations to make truffles that are even more unique!
