Chocolate Chip Popcorn Cookies

This past weekend, my niece and nephew came to visit for a slumber party! Abby, being quite the actress already at only nine years old knew that she wanted to star in one of my Youtube cooking videos. Requesting a simple but scrumptious chocolate chip cookie recipe, I got to work on figuring out the best one I could find. We stuck with a standard chocolate chip recipe but added walnuts and popped popcorn to the batter! The result was a combo of salty and sweet cookie bites that had a little bit of earthy flavor with the walnuts there to tone them down. We had a blast making this video below. Check it out and make this recipe yourself!
