This is a recipe that I know will make my fellow peanut butter lovers out there smile! It’s ridiculously simple and unbelievably tasty. And addicting. You’ve been warned!
The good news? You probably already have all of the ingredients that you’ll need to make this snack in your pantry.
Popcorn. Cinnamon. Honey. Peanut butter. That’s it!
I created this on a night when I had a serious peanut butter craving (shocking!) and started playing around in the kitchen after dinner. The end result was this cinnamon peanut butter popcorn!
After one bite, I knew Ryan and I would have no trouble polishing off every last kernel while we watched some TV.
The popcorn is easy to make and so incredibly delicious, and perhaps the best news is that you can make an extra batch and take it to go — it holds up really well.
I have to give some credit to Becca for inspiring this recipe. She commented on an Instagram photo I posted of almond butter. She said she likes to drizzle the nut butter over popcorn and when I read that my mouth started watering and I knew I had to give it a go… with a little twist!
I tossed a bag of natural popcorn in a sweet and salty mix of peanut butter, honey and cinnamon and couldn’t get enough!
Take natural popcorn and make it special with this sweet and salty mix of peanut butter, honey and cinnamon. It’s great for make-ahead snacks, too!
- 1 bag natural popcorn, freshly popped
- 1/4 cup natural creamy peanut butter
- 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Combine peanut butter, cinnamon and honey in a large bowl.
- Stir together and microwave until slightly runny, about 30 seconds.
- Pour popcorn on top of peanut butter mixture and toss to coat.
- Allow to cool slightly and enjoy!
Ryan and I ended up throwing a handful of chopped pecans in the mix after I was done photographing the popcorn and I loved the added flavor. I highly recommend adding a handful or two of your favorite nuts, dried cranberries or butterscotch chips to the popcorn. The possibilities for add-ins are endless, but it’s quite good without any help!
