The mister and I came up with this recipe one day when we had some left over chocolate almond bark. We decided that you can't go wrong adding some peanut butter to the melty chocolate. The question was what to drench in our yummy, melty chocolate peanut buttery concoction? So we popped a bag of popcorn, coated it with the stuff, let it harden, and viola! A light, crunchy dessert/snack, sure to cure any sweet tooth! The slightly salty popcorn works really well with the sweet chocolate peanut butter coating. If you don't have any chocolate almond bark on hand, you could use chocolate chips mixed with a little milk or heavy cream. You could also easily mix in other things you have on hand, like peanuts. Enjoy!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Coated Popcorn
- Chocolate almond bark, about 4 pieces
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 bag of regular popped popcorn
Melt the chocolate almond bark in the microwave for 30 seconds. Add the peanut butter and stir. Return to microwave and continue to microwave in 15 second increment, until the mixture is completely melted.
Add half of the popcorn and half of the melted mixture to a bowl and stir until the popcorn is fairly well coated. Spread on to wax paper. Repeat with the other half of the ingredients. Let cool for approximately 15 minutes before serving.
