I love popcorn, but popcorn drenched in a peanut butter glaze and drizzled with chocolate creates such a decadent, crunchy snack that you should be prepared to make a second batch! The peanut butter glaze is very simple to prepare and uses just two ingredients. For those who want a healthier option, I have included that as well. Both recipes are delicious!
Because we have a peanut butter allergy in our household, I have used almond butter instead of peanut butter. Luckily, this recipe will work with any kind of nut butter!
What do you need?
12 cups of Popcorn
1/4 cup Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
1/4 cup White Chocolate
4 oz Chocolate ( milk or dark) for drizzling
Into a small microwavable bowl, mix the peanut butter and white chocolate. Microwave 30-60 seconds or until the peanut butter is warm. Remove from the microwave and stir until the white chocolate has melted and the two ingredients are combined.
After spreading out your popcorn in a shallow pan, drizzle with the peanut butter glaze!
You can toss the popcorn gently with a spoon to help distribute the glaze!
Melt 4 oz of the chocolate of your choice and drizzle it over the peanut butter glazed popcorn.
Allow the glaze and chocolate to cool and enjoy!
Now for the Healthier Peanut Butter Popcorn Recipe!
This healthier recipe is just as tasty as the first, but it does not set up as well. If you are hoping to keep your peanut butter popcorn around for a day or two, I would suggest using the first option. If you are like me and the popcorn disappears in less than 30 minutes, then this is a great option for you!
Place 1/4 cup of peanut butter and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a small microwaveable bowl. Heat for 30-60 seconds. Remove from the microwave and mix together until the coconut oil has melted and the two are combined. If you would like to sweeten the glaze, add up to 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar. Drizzle your peanut butter glaze over the popcorn and finish it off with a chocolate drizzle. Allow your popcorn to cool and enjoy!
