Peanut Butter Popcorn!

So, the kiddos and I are headed to my BFF’s house for a pizza party/Wii party. We both have hubbies that are not going to be around this evening, so what better time to get the kids together and have some good, clean fun. Although we are planning on ordering in some pizza. I told her I would take care of some kind of snacks for the kids. I hadn’t made my peanut butter popcorn recipe in awhile, so this was perfect. My crew LOVES popcorn–seriously, we are getting to the point of making almost a bag of the microwave kind for each child. They also pretty much love anything peanut buttery, so it’s all good. Warning: this is highly addictive stuff! I have to get this in a bowl with a lid to remove the temptation of gobbling the whole batch down, especially if it’s one of those days.

Love that little hand sneaking in a bite!

Peanut Butter Popcorn

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 bags microwave popcorn, popped
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 3 TB butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 300 degrees F. Spray 2 baking sheets with non-stick spray. Place popped popcorn in a very large bowl or Dutch Oven. Combine peanut butter, corn syrup, butter, and salt in a medium saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat until mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat, add vanilla, and stir to combine. Pour warm mixture over popcorn and mix very well to evenly coat popcorn. Spread evenly over baking sheets, bake 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove and allow to cool.

A perfect blend of crunchy, salty, and sweet.
