50 Flavored Popcorns -- Chocolate & Peanut Butter Corn

I have written about popcorn already. As our go-to favorite snack, butter popcorn beats all other snacks. Popcorn is also the most versatile snack I can think of. I make butter popcorn, caramel corn, kettle corn and a few savior flavors like chili corn and bacon corn with my Back to Basics Popcorn Popper.

I was so thrilled to see in the Jan / Feb 2014 Food Network magazine, the recipe book insert was "50 Flavored Popcorns". Tonight, I made a variation of #39: "Peanut Butter". My variation was inspired by one of my favorite candy bars - the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

39. Peanut Butter Heat 1 cup honey and 3/4 cup sugar over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Stir in 1 cup peanut butter and 1 teaspoon each vanilla extract and kosher salt until smooth; pour over 16 cups hot popcorn and 2 cups peanuts and toss. Spread on baking sheets and let cool.

MADCookie Peanut Butter variation:
Replace peanuts with roughly chopped chocolate.
Note: my Chica thinks it should be called "Get-Behind-Me-Satan popcorn"
