The great crunch of popcorn combined with peanut butter is a favorite for us. This is a fast and easy party-pleaser for your next activity or get together.

Peanut Butter Popcorn
16-17 cups popped popcorn
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter, creamy style
20 large marshmallows
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup dry-roasted peanuts or cashews (optional)
In a microwave safe bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, and marshmallows. Microwave on “high” at 1 minute intervals, stirring each time, until the mixture is melted and smooth. Stir in the peanut butter and salt until well blended. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir quickly to coat the popcorn (add the nuts at this time if desired). Spread out the popcorn on a large baking sheet to cool.
