Peanut Butter Popcorn Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 cup water
  2. 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  3. 1 tablespoon honey
  4. 1/2 cup plain peanut butter
  5. 6 cups popped popcorn (about 1/4 cup dry kernels popped)
  6. Salt

Directions

  1. Prepare the popcorn either in a popper, on the stove top, or in the microwave.
  2. This step is just for adults due to needing to use the stove. Place the brown sugar, water, and honey in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Let boil for about two minutes and then turn off the heat. Measure and add the peanut butter and stir until it melts together.
  3. Measure and add six cups of the popcorn to a large bowl and then pour the warm peanut butter mixture over the popped kernels. Invite your child to help stir and mix the popcorn and peanut butter together using a large spoon.
  4. Give the finished snack a dusting of salt and serve.
