In my ongoing quest to feed my (seemingly) endless desire for sweets without having to turn on an oven or stove, I came back around to popcorn.

Yes, popcorn.

Remember that tasty s’mores popcorn from a few weeks back?  Well, BF has been asking for it over and over again.  Me being the wonderful girlfriend that I am, instead of giving it to him, I made him something else!

Something I was pretty sure that he would still love.  Filled with one of his favorite candies.  And I made it so that I could eat it too, by adding lots and lots of extra peanut butter.  I know that we’ve recently exchanged words about my sentiment toward Reese’s Pieces, but I do still love peanut butter, and I had another half bag of adorable mini Reese’s Pieces to use up.

See that? Easy peasy!

Reese’s Pieces Popcorn

Makes about 10 cups popcorn

Printable Recipe

  • 1 3-ounce bag microwave popcorn, popped
  • generous sprinkle of salt, to taste
  • ½ cup white chocolate or vanilla chips
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup mini Reeses Pieces

1.  Spread popped popcorn on a large rimmed baking sheet.

2.  Microwave peanut butter and vanilla chips in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds or so,  until melted.  Drizzle half of the peanut butter mixture over popcorn and sprinkle with a generous helping of salt.  Toss to coat.

3.  Sprinkle Reese’s Pieces over popcorn, and drizzle remaining peanut butter in a pretty, haphazard pattern.  Allow to cool completely.  This popcorn is best eaten the day it’s made, but can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.

    • That’s my usual solution to things I wouldn’t generally eat, “COVER IT WITH PEANUT BUTTER, MMMM TASTES DELICIOUS” hahaha!

  1. I like that some of your recent recipes are… you know, normal people recipes. Easy to make, and things I’d actually stuff my face with. I don’t want to toast any mother freakin’ quinoa. I WANT to eat popcorn and candy.

    • I’ve been told, Movita, that I’m a “normal person”…

      Ok, that’s a lie, no one has ever called me “normal,” but I can’t imagine anyone turning down popcorn tossed with a bunch of candy, right?

      • it’s a good thing you admitted to the lie up there, b/c i was TOTALLY going to call you out. you have obviously never been referred to as “normal.”

  2. okay…i just need a really good reason to make this. really good…like legit reason to cover peanut butter in popcorn. should i invent a party to go to? should i just make it? no…then i’d eat it all myself. hmmm…problems.

  3. WHOA: slow down, fingers. i meant to cover popcorn WITH peanut butter, not the reverse. or i guess it could be covering peanut butter with popcorn, depending on your point of view.
