During exam time I find myself on the hunt for snack food. I’m ravenous for it! The more sweet and salty the better – anything to get my mind off of studying, really.

With this massive snack craving, and with little time to make anything too wild, I thought of putting some of my favorite flavours together on some air-popped popcorn.

It was a good idea. Such a good idea that this popcorn lasted only two days! The peanut butter and honey come together to make an almost caramel-like consistency on the popcorn. I’m in heaven.

To begin, place wax paper on a large baking sheet and spray with baking spray. Pop your popcorn either with an air popper, on the stove top, or with bagged popcorn.

Place popcorn in a large bowl.

In a small saucepan, combine sugar and honey. Bring to a rolling boil.

Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth.

Add vanilla.

Pour peanut butter syrup over popcorn and stir to coat.

HELLO!

Spread out on to a cookie sheet to cool for a few minutes.

Enjoy!

  1. oh my, this sounds diviiiine. honey + peanut butter is one of the most glorious combinations ever + i loved that you made it into a popcorn topping. so delicious!

    This does sound amazing, and super easy besides! I think I might toast some whole nuts and add them to the mix as well, or maybe some sesame seeds…mmm. I wonder if there’s some way to get banana in there to create pb & honey & banana popcorn? Maybe half a super-ripe banana mashed thoroughly & added to the caramel mix?
