Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn
This recipe comes from Our Best Bites and it was really good and easy.
About 20 cups of popped popcorn
2 cups honey roasted peanuts
3 cups peanut butter chips
2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 TBSP vegetable shortening or oil
Place the peanuts, popped popcorn in a very large bowl. In a microwafe safe bowl, combine the peanut butter chips and oil or shortening and heat for 2-2 1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Drizzle the melted pb chips over the popcorn and peanuts and toss to combine.
Spread the popcorn onto wax paper-lined baking sheet. In a ziploc bag, heat the chocolate chips until just melted and smooth (about 1 1/2 minutes), mashing the bag every 20-30 seconds. Cut a small corner in the bag and drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn. Allow to stand long enough to become solid. When done, break the popcorn into small pieces and enjoy!
