Ingredients

  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 cup milk chocolate melting candy
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup miniature peanut butter cups halved

Instructions

  • Pour the popcorn into a large bowl and remove any un-popped kernels
  • Place the chocolate melting candy and peanut butter in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power for 1 minute. Stir until melted and smooth. If needed, add additional heating time in 30-second increments, stirring after each time, until the candy is melted and smooth.
  • Pour the melted candy over the popcorn. Add the peanut butter cups to the bowl. Using a large rubber spatula, gently stir to coat.
  • Spread the popcorn mixture on a large piece of parchment paper or a large silicone baking mat.
  • Allow to cool until the chocolate coating has hardened, about 20 minutes. Break into pieces before packaging or transferring to a bowl to serve immediately. The popcorn may be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
