Peanut butter popcorn
Here’s a recipe for those of you with a serious sweet tooth. Peanut butter popcorn with chocolate drizzle. I didn’t enjoy this one any where near as much as I loved that cinnamon popcorn I made a while back. It tasted more like candy to me, than the salty/sweet snack I was craving. Jim and Sam liked it though, so I wanted to share it.
I’ve also got a camera update. I happily upgraded just a little from my old, broken point and shoot camera to a new Nikon L100. It’s still a point and shoot but it offers me more flexibility and choices when I’m taking pictures. Now I just have to learn how to use it! And thank you for all the blog-commiserating when my camera broke!
Recipe: Peanut Butter Popcorn
(slightly adapted from Frantic Home Cook)
8-10 c. popped popcorn
1 c. light corn syrup
1 c. granulated sugar
1. c. peanut butter (I used smooth, but I think chunky would be great too.)
2 pinches of kosher salt or sea salt
chocolate candy melts for drizzling
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Stir corn syrup and sugar together in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for one minute. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter. Be careful! This is super hot! Pour mixture over popcorn and stir to coat. Pour popcorn onto baking sheet and bake in oven for 10 minutes. Spoon popcorn onto wire rack covered with waxed paper or parchment paper. Allow to cool completely. Melt candy melts in microwave following package directions. Drizzle over popcorn and allow to set. Break popcorn into pieces. Store in airtight container.
