Irresistible Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn

That's right Poppy Chow. No I didn't misspell "Puppy Chow"-the sweet treat you might be familiar with  using rice Chex. This recipe is even better than that one, in my opinion, because you use popcorn=Pop-py Chow!
 And it is an easy, delicious snack to make and place in a pretty tin as a Christmas gift  or whip up for those hungry house guests.

About a month ago I shared an amazing cookie recipe from a great blog called Brown Eyed Baker. This recipe is also hers. She uses my favorite combination of peanut butter and chocolate to make amazing things. It is a dangerous site! Here are the easy steps to follow:



pop a large amount of popcorn-I used a tall stockpot.









{Peanut Butter Chocolate Popcorn} 
Yield: About 8 to 10 servings (possibly more if you’re not chocolate/pb obsessed like me)
Prep Time: 25 minutes
9 cups plain popcorn
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
½ cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ cups powdered sugar
1. Put the popcorn in a very large bowl.
2. In a microwave (at 50% power) or over a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter until melted and smooth. Stir in the vanilla.
3. Pour the chocolate mixture all over the popcorn. Using a large spoon, stir until all of the popcorn is evenly coated with the chocolate/peanut butter mixture.
4. Sift the powdered sugar over the chocolate-covered popcorn and stir until each piece is evenly coated. Spread the mixture out onto a baking sheet and place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
5. Break it up and serve! Store leftovers in an airtight container.

I bet there are lots of variations you could try with this recipe (think melted M & M's, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups....mmmm...)  .

Linking up with these parties and this party.
