We love popcorn for an inexpensive snack. We like to experiment with different flavours – savoury and sweet alike. Here is one we tried recently. It was a hit.
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER POPCORN
- 1 1/2 c. popping corn
- 1 stick butter (or coconut oil)
- 1/4 c. organic cocoa powder
- 1/2 c. organic sugar
- 1/4 – 1/2 c. organic peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tsp. salt (or to taste)
Pop your corn and set aside in a very large mixing bowl. It’s going to make a boatload – but we have an entire Navy’s worth of people here, so… Melt your butter over medium heat in a large saucepan, add sugar and cocoa. Continue to cook over medium low until the sugar completely dissolves; stirring constantly. Stir in peanut butter until completely blended. Remove from heat; add vanilla. Pour mixture over popcorn and toss. Sprinkle salt over all and toss again.
