Chewy Peanut Butter Popcorn

This is my last sweet treat, well at least for now. It was definitely worth trying. It is a great change of pace from caramel popcorn .

Chewy Peanut Butter Popcorn from The Double Dipped Life
(Printable Version)
Makes: 3 Qts of popcorn!

1/2 cup unpopped popcorn, or 2 bags microwave popcorn
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter (crunchy is best!)
1 teas. Vanilla

*I use a disposable turkey pan for making popcorn. You can get them at the Dollar Store for $1.00. Otherwise, use 1 very large bowl, or 2 large bowls.

**Another hint: have your peanut butter and vanilla measured out before you start the mixture boiling!

Pop the popcorn, and place in a large bowl. Remove kernels.

Butter sides of a large 1 1/2 qt saucepan. Combine sugar, honey, and corn syrup in pan. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly! Boil hard for 2 minutes, without stirring. Remove from heat.

Stir in Peanut Butter and vanilla until melted.

Immediately pour over popcorn mixture, stirring to coat well. Cool; break into bite size pieces.

***Chocolate drizzled over the top of the popcorn is awesome. Melt some chocolate chips in the microwave and spoon over the peanut butter popcorn.
