Chocolate peanut butter drizzled popcorn

Make your popcorn really pop with this simple and quick recipe.

Print
  • Yield: 10-12 cups popcorn
  • Prep time: 20 minutes

One of my favorite seasonal snacks is the peppermint and chocolate drizzled popcorn that shows up on the shelves around the winter holidays. This gourmet snacks run about $4 for a bag that serves two on a good day, one if it’s been stressful.

But alas – I have discovered you can make your own chocolate drizzled popcorn, customize the drizzle, add your favorite nuts, and yield a much larger portion for a fraction of the price. And you can do it all year round!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 bag chocolate chips
  • 1/2 bag peanut butter chips
  • 1 cup peanut halves, optional
  • 1 large bag kettle corn, or
  • 10-12 cup homemade popcorn

Directions

Put chocolate and peanut butter chips into two microwave safe bowls. Heat for 2-3 minutes on medium heat.

Remove from microwave and stir well. If chips still hold their shape, heat for another minute or two.

Transfer melted chocolate to a small Ziploc bag. Repeat with peanut butter chips. Seal bags well, removing all air.

Snip a tiny corner off each bag with a scissor.

Drizzle melted chocolate and peanut butter chips over popcorn.

Place in fridge to harden for 10-15 minutes. Break up chunks, serve, and enjoy!

*You can use white, butterscotch, mint or any kind of chocolate chips to customize the drizzle to your taste. Go crazy and mix a bunch together, and then add several kinds of nuts to create an out of this world, sweet and crunchy snack.
