Peanut Butter, Honey, and Chocolate Popcorn

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.... :)
