Chocolate and Peanut Butter Popcorn


  • 8 cups plain popcorn I used one large bag of Orville Redenbacher Natural Popcorn but you can use any kind you would like
  • salt or salted popcorn
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips melted (I used a microwave to melt the chocolate)
  • 1 1/2 cups Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups


  • Place the popped popcorn in a large bowl and salt to taste (skip this step if you have salted popcorn). Set aside.
  • Mix the honey and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Let it simmer for about 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and add the peanut butter. Stir vigorously until all the peanut butter is melted, then mix in the vanilla extract.
  • Immediately pour the peanut butter caramel over the popcorn and gently stir with a long-handled wooden spoon until it's all coated. Spread popcorn on a large baking sheet over a piece of wax or parchment paper. Drizzle popcorn with melted chocolate and let sit until chocolate hardens (I stuck it in the freezer for a couple of minutes to speed it along). Stir in the Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. You can also use chopped Reese's Cups if you can't find the Mini size.
