Peanut Butter Popcorn

If you like peanut butter, 
then you'll ♥ Peanut Butter Popcorn.

This has been a favorite recipe of mine for a bazillion years or more... 
and I'm not really a peanut butter fan. 

I remember how my kids always loved this for a 
Family Home Evening snack. 

It's lip smacking, finger licking good.

1/2 cup unpopped popcorn  (1/2 cup unpopped popcorn = 3 qts popped)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Pop the corn and remove any unpopped kernels.

Butter sides of a heavy saucepan.

Combine honey, corn syrup and sugar in the saucepan.  Bring to boil, stirring continuously.
Boil hard for 2 minutes (no longer) as you stir.
Remove from heat.

Stir in peanut butter and vanilla.  Immediately pour over popcorn. Stir to coat well.
Spread out on a clean surface to cool.

At this point you may wish to make popcorn balls by coating your fingers in butter and pressing a handful of popcorn lightly into a ball.  A great way to limit the portion, otherwise it will all disappear in minutes.


  1. YESSSSS! I have so been wanting this recipe. Thanks Mom!!!

  2. I made this over the weekend and am in love with your recipe. It was the perfect combination of soft and chewy and peanut butter and I love when I ate the last of it it was still soft even though it was 2 days old. Thank you for sharing!

  3. Just made this, it's good! I actually don't remember eating it growing up, must have been with the older kids. I DO remember lots of caramel popcorn though. I make that at least once a month, but I might be switching it up every now and then with this recipe :)
