My cousin's son is a teenager, but he still remembers the day he was 3, visiting our house, when we made peanut-butter popcorn. He stood on his tippy-toes to help me turn the popcorn popper, and watched as I melted the peanut butter for the topping. After all these years, he still vividly remembers that cool Kansas afternoon.
For our last Homemade Snacks installment, I'm sharing the simplest of recipes for one of the most desired treats by my children: Peanut Butter Popcorn. My mother used to make this as a treat for us as kids, and the peanut buttery, almost caramely, coating was to die for.
There are no measurements to this recipe; just eyeball it and enjoy!
Pop one batch popcorn.
Melt in microwave (30 seconds to one minute) peanut butter. (You can also mix in some butter, which will make the end product more caramel-like.)
Add in brown sugar to desired sweetness.
Pour over popcorn.
Keep napkins handy!
