Peanut Butter Chocolate Popcorn

Jake and I went to Trader Joe's a few days ago and found these de-li-cious mini milk chocolate peanut butter cups. I love them! In my personal opinion, they are better than Reese's. I combined them with popcorn and a little more sugar to create a great party snack.

Recipe slightly altered from Two Peas and Their Pod

Here's what you need:
-5 cups butterless, plain popcorn popped
-1/4 cup honey
-3 Tbs sugar
-1/4 cup peanut butter
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-A dark chocolate bar
-3/4 cup Trader Joe's mini milk chocolate peanut butter cups (or mini reese's cups)

Here's what you do:
-Lightly salt the popped popcorn
-In a saucepan, combine honey and sugar. Stir regularly until it comes to a boil, then let simmer for two minutes.
-Add peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until well mixed and peanut butter is melted.
-Stir into popcorn while still hot.
-Spread onto wax paper.
-Use a micro-plane to grate dark chocolate on top of the popcorn. (Use as much or as little as you want)
-Allow to cool completely.
-Break popcorn mixture apart into small pieces.
-Place popcorn pieces and peanut butter cups in a bowl and mix well.

I love finding new treats at Trader Joe's. What are your go-to Trader Joe's items?

  1. Looks delicious! I was so sad that Trader Joe's didn't come more than 1 month before we left! I will love it whenever we're home!

  2. That's a bummer. You'll just have to stock up when you come home and visit this summer!
