We coated chewy, ready-to-bake Betty Crocker sugar cookies with popcorn, pretzels, candies and peanuts for yummy slumber party or movie-night treats.

Ingredients

1
roll (16 oz) Pillsbury™ Ready to Bake!™ refrigerated sugar cookies
2
cups sugar
1/2
cup water
1
teaspoon kosher (coarse) salt
2/3
cup whipping cream
6
cups popped popcorn
2
cups pretzel sticks, broken into pieces
2
cups candy-coated milk chocolate candies
1
cup salted peanuts
Additional kosher (coarse) salt, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray or line with cooking parchment paper. Press cookie dough on cookie sheet.
  • 2 In large saucepan, heat sugar, water and 1 teaspoon salt to boiling over medium-high heat. Boil without stirring until mixture is amber in color, about 8 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat; slowly pour in whipping cream (mixture will sputter).
  • 3 In large bowl, toss popcorn, pretzels, candies and peanuts. Drizzle with caramel mixture; stir until well coated. Firmly and evenly press mixture on cookie dough. Sprinkle with additional salt.
  • 4 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until cookie layer is baked. Cool completely. Cut into 4 rows by 3 rows.
Tips  

Use 2 bags of microwave popcorn or purchase already popped popcorn to save time.

Place bars in the refrigerator for 1 hour to set up quickly and to harden the popcorn topping.
