Did you know that tomorrow, January 19th is National Popcorn Day? I love popcorn of all kinds. It’s just such a fun treat and you can really do a lot with popcorn. Of course I won’t deny, a big bag of movie theater popcorn with extra greasy butter is probably one of my main guilty pleasures, but I like fancying up my popcorn sometimes too.
One of my big indulgences is Reese’s Peanut Butter cups and combining that with popcorm sounds like the perfect marriage to me. It’s the perfect combindation to satisfy both your sweet and salty cravings. I hope you emjpy this one as much as I do!
8 cups popped popcorn
12 mini Reese’s cut into small pieces
¾ cup light corn syrup
¾ cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
4 teaspoons coconut oil
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
In a small pan, over medium heat, combine corn syrup, sugar, and peanut butter. Mix in 2 teaspoons coconut oil. Stir until well combined.
Place popcorn in a large bowl and fold in the peanut butter mixture until popcorn is coated.
The mixture will be gooey and you will probably have to use your hands for the next step.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread the mixture over the cooking sheet.
Be sure to push out to the edges of the cookie sheet.
Sprinkle Reese’s over the popcorn mixture.
Melt chocolate chips with 2 teaspoons coconut oil.
Drizzle chocolate over popcorn.

I love chocolate and popcorn together. Adding reeses to it just makes it heavenly!

That certainly does sound like a winning combination. I have always loved the taste of peanut butter and chocolate combined (like in Reeses Peanut Butter Cups). I never thought of combing that with popcorn–what a great idea for a party.

Snack Time, my kids would love this for sure. Reeses chocolate is one of my kids favorite.

This recipe seems amazing and I cannot wait to make a batch! could you please let me know how long you can store this when made and what is the best way to store it? I want to make little goodie bags for the kids this christmas.

Honestly I’ve never really stored it for any length of time – it usually gets eaten within the weekend when I make it, but I just store it in some tupperware or rubbermaid containers and it’s always been fine. I bet if you did goodie bags and then stored them in a good sealing container until you were ready to distribute them you’d be just fine for at least a week or more ahead of time.

This doesn’t need to be baked ?
Alison saysDecember 7, 2017 at 7:17 pm
Nope! No baking necessary!

Can’t wait to try this. All of the ingredients are my favorite. I make a white chocolate mix for Christmas and it never lasts very long. My family loves it so very excited about trying this recipe.

Let me know how you like it! It’s really a fave around here!
