Monster Cookie Dough Popcorn

A couple weeks ago I finally splurged on a jar of Biscoff spread. Let's just say, I now understand why people eat this stuff by the spoonful! It's honestly that good, but also almost $4 a jar. Not something I will be purchasing on a regular basis.

My good friend Angie had recently made up a batch of this popcorn and brought over a container to share with us. Actually she was returning my container, she told me how her neighbor said to never return an empty container, it should always be full of something else. I've never heard that saying before. But I like it!

This popcorn is utterly addicting, I'm not kidding. Good thing I sent home a bag with my in-law's the other night. You've got all kinds of good stuff going on in here, everyone is bound to fall in love with this popcorn treat!

Monster Cookie Dough Popcorn

7 cups popped popcorn
1-1/4 cups white chocolate chips
1-1/2 tbsp shortening
1/3 cup biscoff spread
1/3 cup quick oats
3/4 cup miniature marshmallows
4 oz. pkg cookie dough bites candy (found these at Wal-Mart)
3.4 oz. pkg M&M candy (again at Wal-Mart, theater candy boxes)

In a microwave safe bowl, melt white chocolate chips and shortening together. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring each time until smooth. When completely melted add in biscoff and stir until melted through. Add in quick oats, stir and let cool for a few minutes. Add popcorn and marshmallows to a large bowl, pour melted chocolate mixture over popcorn and toss together well until all popcorn is coated.

Sprinkle in both chocolate candies and toss with a spatula to combine. Lay wax paper out on the counter top and pour popcorn onto lined counter to let cool. Let set out for awhile and then transfer to air tight containers.

In other news, check out all the pears we picked from my in-law's tree yesterday after church! We haven't even put a dent into it. Last year with the drought the tree just didn't produce so I've been anxious to get over there and get some this year. I've been checking each week to see how they're doing and afraid all the older ladies in the neighborhood would snatch them all up before I got a chance :)

We made up some pear sauce last year and it was so good! I can't wait to make a bunch and stash it away in the freezer for winter.
