Peanut Butter Popcorn Recipe

Sometimes, I feel like my love for peanut butter is way deeper than most people's.  It's my go-to for any kind of decadent dessert.  Come to think of it, a couple of dollops on pretty much anything, and I'm a happy camper 😛  (hello, peanut butter BACON anyone??  Will save that nugget for another blog post...)

Turns out that if you combine it with popcorn, you've got the perfect cozy fall night snack!  My mom used to make this recipe when I was little.  She loved popping up popcorn as an easy treat for us kids, and she was pretty creative about it.  There were all kinds of flavors up her sleeve, but PB would always reign supreme for me.  So I decided to dust it off for old time's sake.

Sigh.  Making childhood recipes for nostalgia is a certain kind of happiness, isn't it :)


+ 4 cups popcorn
+ 2 Tbs Butter
+ 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
+ 1/2 cup Peanut butter
+ Salt for taste
+ Optional- crushed peanuts for topping


+ Dissolve the brown sugar in 1/2 cup water.
+ Melt the butter in small sauce pan
+ Add brown sugar mixture.  Simmer for 7-10 minutes, or until most of the water has cooked off.
+ Add peanut butter, and stir until completely combined, and a consistency that you like (remember that once it cools, the mixture will harden a bit.)
+ Let cool for 5-10 minutes.  Be careful, the mixture will be very hot!  
(Optional)  Add a pinch of salt.  I did use unsalted butter, so I required a little bit of extra salt.  But I felt like a little extra brought out the butter taste more 😃

HELLO YUM.  ❤️  

Also, WARNING.  This recipe was a little bit addictive.  Share liberally!
