These peanut butter popcorn bars are chewy, sticky, and chock full of peanuts. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did, but beware- they won’t last long in your kitchen.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Yield: 8-10 servings
3 ounce bag of popcorn, popped
1/2 cup of honey roasted peanuts
1/2 cup of The Bee’s Knees peanut butter
1/4 cup of honey
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup cream
1 cup mini marshmallows
1. Line a rectangular pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper and then grease with cooking spray.
2. Place the popcorn and peanuts together in a large mixing bowl; set aside.
3. Place a large heavy pot on medium low heat and mix together the peanut butter, honey, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. Continue to stir until the peanut butter mixture is softened. Add in the butter and stir slowly until it is completely melted. Add in the cream once the butter is combined into the peanut butter mixture. Continue stirring until it is completely combined.
4. Pour the marshmallows into the pot and continue to stir until they are completely melted (keeping temperature on medium/medium low so the sugar doesn’t burn).
5. Remove the pot from heat and pour the popcorn peanut mixture into the peanut butter mixture. Stir until the popcorn is completely covered and sticky. Press into prepared rectangular pan and allow to set for about an hour, until cooled.
6. Remove from pan and cut into bars. Enjoy!
