I've been making this recipe for a few years now. I got the idea somewhere on the internet, but I can't remember where- it's super, super simple, quick, easy, and perfect for a party or just snackin' around. A chewier, peanut butter version of caramel corn, if you will- that's the closest comparison I can make! Let me show you...
|Pop up your popcorn- I used 1/2 cup of kernels and my air popper.|
|Put your honey and sugar in a pot on med-low heat, stir until melted and uniform.|
|Take off of the heat, add the peanut butter and vanilla, and whisk until uniform.|
|Here's your topping, all ready to go- the more liquidy it is at this point, the easier it will be to toss with the popcorn.|
Peanut Butter Popcorn
-1/2 cup popcorn kernels, popped
-1/2 cup honey
-1/3 cup sugar
-1/2 cup peanut butter
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Put popped popcorn in a large bowl with room for tossing (you can definitely use less or more popcorn, depending on your tastes).
Put honey and sugar in a pot on low-medium heat and stir until melted completely and uniform.
Take off the heat and add peanut butter and vanilla. Stir well until combined and uniform.
Pour peanut butter mixture over popcorn and toss well.
Store in an airtight container- this popcorn isn't supposed to be crispy at all, but it will be no good if it gets completely humidified, so make sure it's airtight!
|Your finished popcorn- chewy and peanut buttery. Snack away, just make sure to store in an airtight container when you're not eating it!|
