Peanut Butter Popcorn Recipe

    A sweet and salty snack you will be making again and again – nothing is more crowd-pleasing or delicious than peanut butter drizzled popcorn. 

    Peanut Butter Drizzled Popcorn

    If peanut butter drizzled popcorn is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Sweet, salty, crunchy goodness in every bite – you will be licking your fingers by the time you reach the bottom of the bowl.

    I can’t tell you why I waited so long to share this recipe with all of you but I can assure you it will be worth the wait. In fact, it’s hardly a recipe at all, but it is my favorite way to enjoy popcorn when I’m craving something sweet. The healthy fats and protein in the peanut butter combined with the whole grain fiber and other minerals in the popcorn make this a guilt-free snack.

    If you love popcorn as much as I do, I must tell you about this Amish Country popcorn kernels. Giant, puffy, crunchy, and fragrant – each piece is always fresh and full of flavor. While I will tell you where you can buy it, I will not tell you how much we go through on a monthly basis… I’m pleading the fifth.

    1. For all those sweet tooths looking for a good snack with limited ingredients this is okay, after coating the popcorn with peanut but add sugar (to your taste) and a dash of salt! Also try using marshmallow fluff or Nutella with the peanut butter! Tastes amazing

    2. Well, now I know what to do with all that popcorn I’ve apparently I’ve been saving for a special occasion! This peanut drizzle is totally that special occasion.

    3. Seriously, what DOESN’T Bob’s Red Mill make? Just when I think I’m pretty familiar with most of their products, I’m like “What?!? Popcorn?”

      I imagine this would disappear in about 3-1/2 seconds at my next party!

    4. I just recently found out that Bob’s had popcorn kernels last week when I went to the store to buy 8 different flours. I love you, Bob!

      Peanut butter is my weakness and I’m a big fan of popcorn so this recipe is TOPS!

    5. I always love to have Crunchy, salty, buttery popcorn :D If I’m in hurry I prefer microwaved popcorn instead. Although, I’m on a strict diet, but would love to try Peanut Butter popcorn :)
