Chocolate & Peanut Butter Popcorn (Poppy Chow)

Okay, so I have a serious weakness for chocolate and peanut butter. It is even more amplified when there is a sweet /salty combination. This just sounded too delicious to resist. It is called "Poppy Chow" not "Puppy Chow", because it is made with popcorn, of course! I love the original Chex cereal "Puppy Chow" but this one comes up pretty close in scrumptiousness. So for all you chocolate, peanut butter, and popcorn fans out there, get ready to fall in love.

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Popcorn (Poppy Chow)

Yield: About 8 to 10 servings
Prep Time: 25 minutes

  • 9 cups plain popcorn
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
1. Put the popcorn in a very large bowl.
2. In a microwave or over a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter until melted and smooth. Stir in the vanilla.
3. Pour the chocolate mixture all over the popcorn. Using a large spoon, stir until all of the popcorn is evenly coated with the chocolate/peanut butter mixture.
4. Sift the powdered sugar over the chocolate-covered popcorn and stir until each piece is evenly coated. Spread the mixture out onto a baking sheet and place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
5. Break it up and serve! Store leftovers in an airtight container.
