Movie night from the comfort of home is an easy and fun activity for my family, especially during the colder months when its harder to spend time outside. This Peanut Butter Drizzled Popcorn is my favorite snack when it comes to craving something sweet, and it adds some added fun to movie or game night! Sweet, salty, crunchy goodness in every bite – you will be licking your fingers by the time you reach the bottom of the bowl.

Ingredients

  • Popcorn kernels: while you could use unflavored microwave popcorn, I’d recommend popping kernels on the stove or in a popcorn popper! Yellow or white popcorn will work.
  • Peanut butter: A perfect balance of nutty, sweet, and salty flavor while also being a great source of protein.
  • Salt: Enhances the flavors of the peanut butter and popcorn.

How to Make Peanut Butter Drizzled Popcorn

Popping popcorn on stove

Start your peanut butter drizzled popcorn by popping your popcorn kernels either on the stove or in an air popper.

Adding popcorn to bowl

Then pour the popcorn into a large bowl.

Sprinkling salt on popcorn

Then sprinkle with some salt to taste.

Drizzling peanut butter on popcorn

Put the peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl for about 30-40 seconds to melt it, then drizzle it over the top of the popcorn.

Stirring popcorn

Stir or toss well until popcorn is evenly coated.

Drizzle until coated to your liking, serve, and enjoy! Peanut butter drizzled popcorn is best served still warm.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What toppings can you put on popcorn?

There are all sorts of sweet and salty combos you can try. The classic butter is an easy go-to, or I also have a chocolate peanut butter popcorn recipe as well!

How do I add melted butter on popcorn without making it soggy?

Use clarified butter, or ghee, as it has less water than regular butter!

How would I make this with microwave popcorn?

Just pop in the microwave according to the instructions, then empty into a bowl and drizzle as instructed above. I would recommend only using lightly salted or unflavored microwave popcorn.

    Before pouring the pb on the popcorn, try adding 1T of honey (or sf honey) &/or ground cinnamon; I like to add both. Sometimes I just dip individual popcorn kernels into the pb mixture. Yum! It also works with my blood sugar goals, so that’s an added bonus!

    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

    What a great idea. I thought that was caramel for a second but peanut butter is way better. I love it!

    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!

    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 :)
