Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn

I decided I needed one more "treat" for a bridal shower gift(more coming on that soon). I remember seeing this recipe a while ago and wanted to make it, just hadn't had time or the opportunity to yet. I knew this would be the perfect time! This would make a great gift for Christmas or teacher's gifts as well! Afterall who doesn't love some gourmet popcorn?

Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn-shared from Annie's Eats
1/2 cup popcorn
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp butter
2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 cup(or more chocolate chips)

Place oil in pan and pop corn. I use a whirlypop, but you can also use an air popper or a regular pan and just shake it until the kernels are all popped. Spread popcorn out onto cookie sheets lined with waxed/parchment paper. In the mean time, place pb, sugar, and butter into microwave safe bowl and heat until melty so you are able to drizzle it. BECAREFUL THE BOWL IS HOT! (and ultimately the peanut butter is too!) Drizzle over popcorn and turn to coat, this works best with your hands. Spread to cool. (For me, I had enough pb mix to make another batch so I did, I also didn't measure out the pb so that could have been why).

Next melt, chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl until it is able to drizzle. Drizzle over popcorn and let set and cool.

I packaged mine into a big batter bowl with a lid for the shower gift, after all I thought she might like to share with her husband to be. But you can also use mason jars or pretty cellophane bags tied with a ribbon.

**This was tasty and it made A LOT of popcorn. This was a good thing since the boys were oogling over it while I was making it. I forgot to mention that next time I think I will add a touch of salt perhaps once I get the popcorn on it. It didn't give me a sweet/salty taste much(it could be the pb i used). And yes my kitchen was covered in chocolate...along with myself!

  1. Mmmm this sounds SO good. I wonder how long it would keep? It seems like the perfect snack to pull out of a stash when unexpected visitors show up!

  2. well i made it yesterday and it still pretty good. Ill let you know how long it takes for us to finish it. it doesn't take long to make really its more cooling. i may put the pb and choc together and just drizzle it next time!
