Fiery “Cookie” Caramel Corn

This dish is inspired by “Cookie Lyons” from the hottest TV show out – Empire. The blend of flavors speak to Cookies fiery side and blends in elements of sweetness, presented with a fashionable flare. From the sweetness of the caramel and the spice from the Cajun roasted walnuts to the crunch from the waffle cookies, this is the perfect treat at your Empire viewing parties!
