Peanut Butter Popcorn for WEE ones! Print Recipe Print Recipe

 

What kid wouldn’t want to come home to a bowl of this, Peanut Butter Popcorn? It’s an easy, healthy and fun snack for everyone. Adults included.

… as I sit here finishing off the last of it.

When I was growing up, we had a babysitter who would make us peanut butter popcorn for after school snack. It was always such a treat! I have such vivid memories of sitting on the counter, helping her stir. I’m not sure it ever made it into a bowl (she made it on the stove), we just continued eating it directly out of the pot with our sticky fingers. We may have even tossed in m&m’s… yep, there was definitely m&m’s.

 

 

My family and I are relatively obsessed with popcorn.

It’s at a weekly ritual. About an hour or so after dinner, I pull out the air popper (THIS one is our favorite), melt a little butter, and then pour a glass of wine. It’s a beautiful thing.

Instead of butter, what better topping then melted peanut butter for the kiddos. This is also something fun to do with the kids. Let them our the peanut butter over and mix to coat. It gets rather sticky, but that’s what makes it fun!

PRINT Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter or more if you prefer
  • optional – chocolate chips

Directions

Using an air popper, pop the popcorn kernels into a large bowl.

note: this is our favorite popper and has lasted us for years! This or a whirly-pop will do. 

Melt the peanut butter in a pan over low heat. If you’re using chocolate chips, add them into the peanut butter and mix until melted together. Remove from heat and slowly drizzle over the popcorn. Mix well to incorporate.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
