Peanut Butter Popcorn

Nina requested one of our favorite snack recipes this past weekend. So easy and so-o good…how could i have forgotten about it? If you have plans to cozy up and watch a movie in front of roaring fireplace (ok in this day and age, most of us just turn the switch on, but doesn’t a roaring fireplace sound so much better???) Peanut Butter Popcorn is the perfect munchie!

Peanut Butter Popcorn

12 cups freshly popped popcorn

1 cup sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla


As you pop the fresh popcorn, place in oven at lowest setting to keep warm.

In a medium sauceapan, combine sugar and light corn syrup.  Cook over medium heat, storing until mixture comes to a rolling boil.  Remove from heat and immediately stir in peanut butter and vanilla.

In a large bowl, pour mixture over popcorn and stir to coat. Spoon into a greased dish and let cool. Break it into chunks or let your guests do that work!


**NOTE: my mistake is to your benefit…remember to take out any unpopped kernels before adding the peanut butter mixture.  That is, if you care to keep your teeth intact:)
