You asked for it, here it is. Peanut Butter Pop Corn 💃 If you are looking for a quick and easy, lightly sweet, drizzled, creamy, peanut buttery, and pretty healthy popcorn recipe, then you are reading the right recipe. Peanut Butter Popcorn is fun and healthy at once. A snack that would replace the biscuits and cookies the kids' munch at school, and the buns and hot puff-puff you pick up on your way to work. If peanut butter drizzled popcorn is wrong, we don’t want to be right. 😂 The healthy fats and protein in the peanut butter combined with the whole grain fibre and other minerals in the popcorn make this a guilt-free snack.
This would definitely pass for a movie-night treat with bae. Once you try popcorn drizzled with warm, melted peanut butter for the first time you will be making it again and again. Now, let’s dive into the recipe.
½ cup Popcorn kernels (yellow or white)
1⁄4 cup sugar
½ cup honey
½ cup creamy natural peanut butter
Salt to taste
Heat your pan over medium heat and film the bottom with vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the popcorn, shake to distribute, then put a lid on the pan, leaving a small crack for steam to escape. When the first kernel pops, put the lid on all the way.
As the popcorn starts popping, shake vigorously to make sure the kernels are distributed evenly. When the popping slows to a few seconds between pops, take the pan off the heat.
Pour the popcorn into a bowl to cool, and attempt to remove any unpopped kernels. Lightly salt the popcorn to taste.
Mix the honey and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil on low heat. Let it simmer for about 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and add the peanut butter. Stir vigorously until all the peanut butter is melted.
Immediately pour the peanut butter caramel over the popcorn and stir with a long-handled wooden spoon until it's all coated. Allow it to cool.
Let the Chow BEGIN!!!!
This snack will definitely get you and your family hooked. Of course, you can use already popped corn to make this. Another twist to this may include using corn syrup and vanilla extract to improve taste and flavour.
