What’s better than watching your favorite Christmas movie on a Friday night? Eating peanut butter popcorn of course! This recipe makes a ton which is a good thing because it’s so decadent and tasty that it’ll be gobbled up right away!
Peanut Butter Popcorn
1/2 C unpopped popcorn or 16 cups popped popcorn (I used 2 bags of microwavable popcorn)
3/4 C dry-roasted peanuts
1 C sugar
1/2 C honey
1/2 C corn syrup
1 C peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 C Reese’s Pieces
Pop corn and remove any unpopped kernels. Place in a large bowl and stir in peanuts. (Jennifer pops hers in a 9X13 pan and keeps it warm in a 250 degree oven)
In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, honey and corn syrup. Bring mixture to boiling; continue boiling for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not boil too long or your popcorn will be rock hard. Remove from heat.
Stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Immediately pour over popcorn and stir to coat. Stir in the Reese’s Pieces. Serve warm or a room temperature.
