  • 1 bag of microwave popcorn {or 1/4 cup popcorn kernels popped}
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4- 1/2 cups chocolate candy M&M's, etc.
  • 1/4 cup salted peanuts optional

  • Pop popcorn into a large bowl and throw away any unpopped kernels. If you need instructions for cooking popcorn on the stove, see our printable recipe here.
  • Combine corn syrup and peanut butter in a small saucepan. Over medium heat, melt and whisk gently until smooth. Mixture will begin to bubble up slightly- allow it to gently boil for about 3-4 minutes, then remove from heat. Add in salt and vanilla.
  • Pour over popcorn and gently stir to coat peanut butter mixture. Add peanuts, if desired.
  • Transfer to a sheet of wax paper to cool fully. Sprinkle with chocolate candy, if you'd like.
