You read that right – Samoa Cookie Popcorn. And it tastes just as amazing as it sounds! Join us for this quick – ridiculously quick – popcorn recipe for a fun family movie night.
Moana Movie Night Popcorn – Two Ways
Our Samoa cookie popcorn is most definitely a treat popcorn, so keep that in mind when serving near bedtime (just as an example…). Because my husband is not a big fan of sweets, I made two popcorn recipes for our Moana movie night.
I made one batch for those with a sweet tooth and one popcorn recipe for everyone who hates smiles and rainbows.
But not really. Who doesn’t love Samoa cookies?! They are, hands down, my favorite Girl Scout cookie. When I get that knock on my door each spring, I am giddy.
And then I get all sad when I realize I mowed through two boxes (obviously, that’s not nearly enough).
But this Samoa popcorn recipe sure does hit the spot!

Coconut Popcorn (for Those Without a Sweet Tooth)
I get it – sometimes the sweets are reserved for others. I don’t know who can resist Samoa cookie popcorn but this alternative is still pretty tasty. Look at all this coconut goodness!
In order to get the full flavor of coconut popcorn, here are my best tips.
- Make popcorn on the stove in a pan, popping the kernels in coconut oil to add flavor. I use about 2 teaspoons for 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels.
- Melt a tiny bit of coconut oil (to be used as a substitute for the butter). I estimate here, but it’s about a teaspoon.
- Add unsweetened toasted flaked coconut (here’s how to toast coconut flakes – mine were done in just minutes on the stove). The toasted coconut is a very different taste than just unsweetened coconut, so don’t skip this step. Look at this gorgeous stuff… Mmmmm, toasty.
Girl Scout Samoa Cookie Popcorn
Much like our sweet Tangled movie night popcorn, this took minutes to make and only seconds of actual hands-on time once we toasted the coconut.
- Popcorn, popped and any kernels removed.
- Caramel sauce to taste (it’s okay to be generous)
- Chocolate sauce (we used dark chocolate because that’s what we had on hand)
- Toasted coconut chopped into fine pieces (here’s here’s how to toast coconut flakes)
Pop the corn (preferably without oil using something like this). Add a single layer of popcorn in a small serving dish. Drizzle caramel and chocolate sauces onto the popcorn and sprinkle on the toasted coconut. Repeat with another layer.
Serve and listen to the “mmmmmmmmm’s” coming from everyone.
