PB & J popcorn

  Snow days need a special treat don't you think?

Our favorite popcorn is covered in peanut butter caramel and tossed with peanuts and craisins.  Perfect to snuggle up and play Star Wars Legos with after a hard day of playing in the snow.  Of course its not just for winter days, it disappears before I can turn around when our family comes to hang out any time of the year.  

PB & J Popcorn

16 cups popped popcorn
1 cup sugar
1 cup honey
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup peanuts
1 cup {or more} craisins

Place popped popcorn in a large bowl, big enough to stir everything together in.  In a heavy saucepan, heat sugar and honey over medium heat, stirring constantly.  When it starts to boil, cook and stir 2-5 minutes more.  Less time if you like softer caramel popcorn and longer if you like it crunchy.   Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and peanuts.  Pour the peanut butter caramel over the popcorn, tossing and stirring to coat.  Add the craisins, stirring to mix everything together.   Then spread it out on wax paper to cool.   I like to snack on it while its still warm for the ultra gooey caramel.  Break in to pieces to seve. Store in an airtight container.

I'd make it for those rosy cheeks any day!
