I needed a snack last night, while doing my homework at midnight… I really wanted cold cereal, but we had no milk. So I settled for something with peanut butter and popcorn. I got browsing recipes and this is what I found. The topping is almost exactly like what I put on my Craisy Granola Bars but this is popcorn and nuts instead! It is a nice mixture of salty, sweet and gooey! It was a great find, and I would have eaten the whole batch myself if I hadn’t reserved some in a bag for my neighbors…
1/4 cup honey
3 TBS sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla
1 bag of popcorn, popped
1/2 – 1 cup peanuts (depending on how nutty you want it)
Put the popcorn and peanuts in a large mixing bowl.
Combine the honey, sugar and peanut butter in a sauce pan. Stir and heat over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil and the sugar is dissolved. Add the vanilla and stir to combine.
Pour the peanut butter mixture over the popcorn and peanuts and stir to coat. Spread the mixture on wax paper (or tin foil) to cool. Store in an air tight container… if you have any left to store!
