Peanutbutter Popcorn

DSCN2572

My kids love popcorn, I’m sure yours do too.  I make my own – because it’s easy, and most popcorn sold in Taiwan is sweet.  Strangely enough I grew up in another culture that liked sweet popcorn.  Still haven’t gotten around to enjoying sugar on my popcorn yet.  But this is honey, so it doesn’t count 🙂

1.  Pop your popcorn however you do… I use a soup pot, some oil and about 1/3- 1/2 c. popcorn kernels.  Once popped, I’m not sure how many cups that is.

2.  Melt 2 TB butter with 1/4 c. honey and 1/4 c. peanut butter (I used natural peanut butter ground up by my sister in law 謝謝!)

3.  Let it bubble a bit, but stir it well so it doesn’t burn.  Take it off the heat once it thickens up a bit.

4.  Pour the mixture over your popcorn, and give it a good mix.

5.  Spread your popcorn on cookie sheets (for me that was 2 because I use a toaster oven) Sprinkle with salt.  I really like how the salt cuts through the sweet honey so I use about 1/2 tsp.

6.  Bake for 5-10 minutes at 375 until brown – not burnt!

Let cool and enjoy.
