Kettle Corn Chocolate Chip Cookies – Cake Over Steak

On her blog Cake Over Steak, Sara Cornelius shares a recipe that combines two snack favorites: kettle corn and chocolate chip cookies. 

"I developed my deep affection for kettle corn at Hersheypark," she explains. "I would buy a fresh, warm bag of kettle corn by the front of the park, and then swing over to one of the gift shops to buy a bag of Hershey’s miniatures. These two items had to be enjoyed together."
