nearly every time we go to my family cabin in Pinetop someone ends up making peanut butter popcorn. I don’t recall who started this tradition (or who shared this recipe first) but I’m happy they did. just thinking about it makes me think of sitting on one of the soft leather sofas at the cabin in front of a roaring fire. we’re all gabbering about this and that, while the kids do gymnastic tricks on the wood floor. then, thankfully, one of my sisters announces that it’s bedtime for the kids and the whining begins. nevertheless, thirty-ish minutes later, the kids are asleep and we’re all back on the sofas except one person who’s at the stove (for approximately 10 minutes) making peanut butter popcorn. it’s a yummy, gooey, easy treat that’s great for sharing (with adults) while you sit around talking, playing cards, watching movies – whatever. mmmm, finger lickin’ good.
peanut butter popcorn
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup unpopped popcorn kernels
Pop corn in an air popper and place in a large bowl. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and corn syrup over medium heat. Stir until bubbly and sugar is completely dissolved. Remove the pan from heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth. Evenly pour the mixture over the popcorn and combine well. Let cool for 2 minutes before serving (best eaten with fingers).
