Whip us this amazing popcorn recipe!
And, the best part, is there are only 5 ingredients!
To prepare, you'll need to gather:
- 14 c. of popped popcorn (I use butter popcorn (about a bag) plus half plain air-popped corn)
- 16 oz. white chocolate almond bark
- 3 T. peanut butter
- 3 c. dry roasted peanuts
- 2 c. Rice Krispies
Lay out about 4 feet of wax paper on a flat surface so it is ready to lay your popcorn on to dry once mixed.
Pop your popcorn as directed on the package and set aside in a bowl.
Combine Rice Krispies and Peanuts, set aside in a bowl.
Combine white chocolate almond bark and peanut butter in a double boiler stirring constantly, or microwave in 30 second intervals stirring frequently.
Transfer half of the popcorn to a large bowl. Once peanut butter mixture is completely melted with no clumps, slowly pour the peanut butter mixture over the popcorn and cup by cup add the Rice Krispie and peanut mixture to the popcorn, while also continuing to add more popcorn. It will become increasingly harder to stir and that is okay. The goal is to get all of the popcorn mixture somewhat touched by the peanut butter and chocolate mixture.
Lay out the peanut butter and chocolate covered popcorn on the wax paper to dry for 1 hour. Once dry, break in to pieces (however big or small you wish) and serve.
This whole process takes about 30-45 minutes and once dry makes about two (1) gallon zip top baggies full depending on how big your pieces are broken in to.
