National Peanut Butter Day

January 24th is National Peanut Butter Day! (thank you Twitter for letting me know) So on this day, I bring you a sweet and salty snack that uses Reese’s Peanut Butter cups (a favorite candy of mine – and still able to enjoy because it is gluten free)

Reese’s Peanut Butter Popcorn

This popcorn is a twist on the delicious caramel popcorn but this treat has a peanut butter honey coating instead of the caramel. Drizzled with chocolate and mini Reese’s Peanut Butter cups this treat is great for game time, snack time, party time or anytime! 

Ingredients

  • 8 cups plain popcorn
  • Fine salt
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  1. Place the popped popcorn in a large bowl and salt to taste. Set aside.
  2. Mix the honey and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Let it simmer for about 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and add the peanut butter. Stir vigorously until all the peanut butter is melted, then mix in the vanilla extract.
  3. Immediately pour the peanut butter caramel over the popcorn and gently stir with a long-handled wooden spoon until it’s all coated. Spread popcorn on a large baking sheet. Drizzle popcorn with melted chocolate and let sit until chocolate hardens. Stir in the Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
HOW EASY IS THAT! Peanut, chocolate and popcorn. Now that is a winning combination. You can also do this with mini Snickers. Any chocolate candy you choose to use is sure to be delicious! Enjoy your National Peanut Butter Day. (or almond butter if you’re allergic to peanut butter, I definitely do discriminate almond butter. It is DELICIOUS and nutritious.
