this is my mother-in-law's recipe for the most delicious peanut butter popcorn in the universe. it is my favorite treat as of late and i kid you not when i tell you that i probably ate 5lbs of this stuff on sunday. it is really really delicious. and you don't have to be a huge peanut butter fanatic to love it because i'm not crazy for peanut butter...but this stuff...this stuff is what's up.
peanut butter popcorn
2 bags of microwavable popcorn
1 cup of sugar
1 cup caro syrup
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1. pop the popcorn as listed on the bag and set aside in a large bowl.
2. melt the sugar and caro syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil. let the mixture thicken slightly until all the sugar is dissolved and you can no longer see the granules.
3. mix in peanut butter.
4. pour over popped popcorn and mix.
5. try not to eat the whole bowl, but don't feel that bad if you do because you are not alone.
note: i like to let it cool and eat at room temperature, but that's just me!
