Peanut Butter Popcorn

Several Christmases ago a friend got us a popcorn popper with a jar of kernels. I have only used it a few times. So yesterday after talking with my coworker who went to watch a movie by himself, that he was happy with his soda and popcorn, I started thinking about making popcorn. So last night after I making dinner (Honey Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi, recipe to come in a later post), I went on working on my peanut butter popcorn, it was soooo delicious, I couldn't even stop eating it! Good thing I only made a small batch to test...

1/8 cup of kernels
1/4 cup of Honey
1/8 cup of Sugar
1/4 cup of Peanut Butter (crunchy or creamy)
1 tsp vanilla

1) In a sauce pan, heat honey, sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla together until well mix.
2) Pop the popcorn, let cool, then place in ziplog bag, picking out the unpopped kernels.
3) Pour in peanut butter mixture into the bag and shake and move the bag until the popcorns are evenly coated with the peanut butter mixture.
4) Optional: Drop the coated popcorn in a single layer on a cookie sheet until cool, OR place in preheated 250 degrees oven for an hour (take out every 15 min to stir the content) then let it cool completely.

The last step is to make your popcorn crunchy, but trust me, it doesn't need to because it was still good soggy!!

I haven't had bento pictures lately because I have been lazy. But summer is coming around the corner and that means I have to make bentos for lil P for his summer fun!! Won't be as cute this year though because he's already 10 and might not like the cute stuff anymore.....

On another note regarding summer, I find this DIY Address Book very useful. What a way for your child to keep in touch with his/her friends over the summer right?

  1. The DIY address book is cool but isn't WAY easier to buy one? I think kids' should write to their friends and family though. Texting is bad, very bad!
