Thin Mint Popcorn

Thin Mint Popcorn | Crumbs and Chaos  A sweet treat made with thin mint or Grasshopper cookies, a super easy snack for your next movie night!  #thinmints #popcorn #movietreats   www.crumbsandchaos.net It’s Girl Scout Cookie time.  I know that all of those cookies are easily enjoyed on their own, but sometimes it’s fun to combine two of your favorite things to make the ultimate movie night snack.
Enter Thin Mint Popcorn…quick, easy,dangerously addictive and deliciously minty – it has all the qualities of a really great snack.  Do yourself a favor and make some soon!
This recipe makes a whole baking sheet full so you’ll have plenty to share with friends.  This is still delicious the next day, but the popcorn does soften up a little bit.  If you like your popcorn really crunchy, you may want to consider making this shortly before you plan on enjoying it.
