{peanut butter chocolate popcorn}

This recipe was created purely by accident. I really wanted to make white chocolate covered popcorn, mixed toffee bits, but a trip to the food storage pantry proved there to be no white chocolate chips. (which was a surprise to me...hmmmm)

So I improvised, and a new favorite was born!

PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE POPCORN


10-15 cups popped popcorn
1 bag peanut butter chips
1/2 bag chocolate chips

Place popcorn in large bowl. Melt the peanut butter chips in a glass bowl in the microwave, making sure to stir every 30 seconds. The chips will hold its shape even when completely soft, so check often to avoid burning. Pour the melted chips over the popcorn, and mix well, making sure to coat all the popcorn. I actually used my hands--it worked much better than just a spoon. Spread the popcorn out on a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil.

Melt the chocolate chips in another glass bowl, following the same method. Spoon into a sandwich bag (or piping bag), then cut the tip of one corner. Pipe the chocolate over the top of the peanut butter popcorn. Let cool for an hour or so, until the chocolate sets.

Enjoy!
