Popcorn Squares

1 pkg. lightly salted popcorn
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 bag (10 oz.) mini-marshmallows
1 bag (8 oz.) mini-Oreos, crushed

Cook popcorn according to package directions.  Place in a large bowl being careful to pick out any that didn’t pop.  Add chips, marshmallows, and Oreos.  Mix.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Line a large 13 x 10 ½ x 2 baking dish with parchment paper.  Bake 10 minutes.  As soon as you remove from the oven, cover with another piece of parchment paper and press down to ‘glue’ the ingredients together.  Remove from pan and cook completely.  Cut into squares. 

Comment:  These are a little difficult to work with but they are worth the trouble.  I did find that they must be completely cooled before cutting and they cut easier if you run the knife under water with each cut.  I've decided that these would be good with the addition of nuts or coconut.  You could also use other flavors of cookies.  The Oreos are a bit difficult to crush due to their filling but plain chocolate cookies would work great.  For my popcorn I used Orville Redenbachers Simple Salted.  It has just enough salt to give you the sweet and salty taste.
