Madhouse recipe : Toffee Popcorn Cookies

While standing in line at the checkout at Sainsbury's, I spotted that the September issue of Sainsbury's magazine was on offer, only £1 instead of the usual £1.80. That was enough for it to find its way into my trolley ! As soon as I got home, I flicked through the recipes - and so did the Madhouse kids - and it was decided that we needed to try out their recipe for Toffee Popcorn Cookies. (You can see the recipe online here.)

I just happened to have a pack of microwavable popcorn in the back of the cupboard so I didn't take much persuading !

Just cream together 225g of butter and 250g of sugar.

Beat in an egg.

Mix in 300g flour and half a teaspoon of baking powder. Add 50g of popcorn to the cookie dough.

Dollop onto a greased baking tray.

Push the rest of the popcorn on top.

Find a willing helper to eat the remaining popcorn (this part didn't seem to be a problem !) then bake for 12 minutes at 180°.

Before removing from the tray, drizzle with melted chocolate.

The only hard part was waiting for them to cool down enough to eat !

"Come on Mum, they'll be fine now !"

And they were ! Yum !

As they used up a packet of popcorn that had been lurking at the back of my cupboard, I'm adding these to this month's #KitchenClearout linky.

Link up your recipe of the week
