Grasshopper Popcorn

Grasshopper popcorn in a white bowl. Today I am sharing Grasshopper Popcorn my friend Something Swanky’s new cookbook Party Popcorn! I have know Ashton for a couple of years now and we met through blogging. I always looked up to her blog and would drool over all of the delicious treats she would create. I got to meet her in real life last year at a blog conference and she was just as awesome and sweet in real life. And last summer we met up in North Carolina for dinner. Her blog is loaded with all sorts of amazing treats! So I was so excited that she announced she was writing a cookbook all about popcorn!

From sticky wings and blue cheese popcorn, buffalo ranch popcorn, to cookies and cream popcorn and turtle brownie popcorn are just a few of the examples. I wanted to make them all!! I will never go back to making regular boring popcorn now that I have this book! 😉

I love anything mint and it is perfect for the season right now. The popcorn is coated in chocolate with Andes Mint pieces and grasshopper mint cookies hidden inside. As soon as I made it I couldn’t stop eating it! This popcorn would be the hit at any party that you have. Or it would even be a great neighbor gift for the holidays. No matter what the occasion this is sure too be a hit! We loved it at our house and I am sure that you will too!
