I don't know about you, but I just can't get enough of that delicious gourmet popcorn that comes around (usually in a very ugly tin!) during the holidays. I get going on one of those tins of popcorn and before I know it, half of it has disappeared... and I am left with orange-stained fingers! Gourmet popcorn is just SO GOOD.
Tonight I decided to create a recipe for an easy, lower-calorie gourmet popcorn. What I ended up with is a sweet and salty... crunchy and chewy... peanut buttery and chocolatey... better-than-gourmet popcorn! Seriously, all I have to say is 'YUM'... this popcorn has it all. Not to mention, it only took me 5 minutes and 4 ingredients to make... so quick and easy. You could enjoy this popcorn as an indulgent little snack, light dessert, or even give it away as a holiday gift!
Peanut Butter, Honey, and Chocolate Popcorn
makes 2 servings
1 (1.2 oz) mini bag, microwavable popcorn (100 calorie, 94% fat-free)
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon peanut butter
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
Prepare popcorn in microwave as directed on bag, then pour popcorn into a large bowl.
In a small bowl, pour honey and peanut butter. Place in microwave and heat for 20-30 seconds, then stir until ingredients are well combined. If peanut butter is not melted completely, place back in microwave and heat in 5 second intervals.
Pour peanut butter/honey mixture over popcorn.
Add mini chocolate chips and stir until popcorn is coated well.
Allow to cool for a few minutes, then enjoy!!!
There will definitely be more variations of this recipe coming soon.... :)
