I have to admit, I am a sweet LOVER. I swear, I haven’t met too many sweet things that I didn’t like.
While I am watching my girlish figure, you guys may not be…so…
Here is a phenomenal recipe for a dessert popcorn.
4 bags microwave popcorn, popped
3/4 c. honey
3/4 c. sugar (granulated)
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. milk chocolate chips
1 c. butterscotch chips
1 c. of your favorite roasted, salted nuts
Pop popcorn. Spray a large cookie sheet or roasting pan with nonstck cooking spray. Put popcorn on, or in, pan. Set aside.
In a 2 quart saucepan, combine honey, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Add peanut butter and vanilla and stir in until dissolved.
Pour peanut butter mixture over popcorn and mix with spoon until all coated.
Melt chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in separate microwave safe bowls, for 1 minute at a time, stirring in-between, until melted. Be careful not to overheat the chips.
Drizzle melted chips, alternately, over popcorn. Stir to incorporate through the popcorn.
Sprinkle salted nuts on the top, stir, then sprinkle on more. Let completely cool and dry…approximately an hour.
Store remainder in an airtight container.
Also great as a gift.
