Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn — Reese’s peanut butter cups added to popcorn; a perfect snack for all you chocolate and peanut butter lovers out there!
For as much as my family loves popcorn, I realized I have not posted many recipes for popcorn. Time to remedy that, don’t you think? Let’s start with this decadent Peanut Butter Popcorn. Because it is right up there with some of the most addicting popcorn I’ve ever tasted. I mean you can’t really go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate, can you?
It took me a couple of tries to get the recipe perfect. The first time I made it, I used less popcorn, and the coating was so thick that it made the popcorn soft. It was still yummy, but I wanted my popcorn more on the crunchy side. So I changed up the ingredients and used less of the coating. Perfection!
This snack couldn’t be easier to make. You just melt some Reese’s peanut butter chips with peanut butter, then drizzle it over your popcorn. Add some chopped peanut butter cups and a little melted chocolate, and you are done. The hardest part is waiting for the chocolate to set up so you can dig in!
- 10 cups popped popcorn
- 1 cup peanut butter chips
- 3 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
- 16 mini Reese's peanut butter cups, quartered
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- Place the popped popcorn in a large bowl. In a small glass bowl, melt the peanut butter chips and peanut butter in the microwave at half power, stirring every 30 seconds. When melted and smooth, pour over the popcorn and stir till evenly coated. Add the chopped peanut butter cups and spread onto cookie sheets.
- Melt the chocolate chips in a little ziplock bag in the microwave. Snip one corner and drizzle the melted chocolate over the coated popcorn. Let the chocolate set, then serve!
