Cinnamon Peanut Butter and Honey Popcorn

When we went to the Farmer’s Market in Virginia we picked up a carton of cinnamon peanut butter. If you’re a frequent reader then you know of my cinnamon obsession. How was I to pass up cinnamon peanut butter?! This peanut butter created by Sprelly is thick in texture so I thought the best way to use it would be to heat it up to make it more spreadable. I thought about making an ice cream with it (and still might!) but when my friend was hosting a “Going to the Movies” game night I knew immediately that I’d make popcorn! Funnily enough, she was also providing four different popcorn flavors to munch on – one of which was a peanut butter and honey. I’m pretty sure we followed the same recipe! Her peanut butter coating did coat the popcorn better, and I’m going to guess that’s because she used a creamy peanut butter. This popcorn can be stored in an air tight container and will stay fresh 2-3 days.

Cinnamon Peanut Butter and Honey Popcorn

Ingredients:

  • canola oil, enough to coat bottom of pot
  • 1/2 C unpopped popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1/4 C cinnamon peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (I used Nielsen-Massey)
  • salt, to taste

Steps:

  1. Put canola oil in pot over medium high heat along with 2-3 kernels of popcorn. Cover and stand by. Once you hear the kernels pop, add the 1/2 C of popcorn. Cover and cook over medium heat until popping slows. Gently shake the pot during the popping process so as not to burn the popcorn at the bottom. Remove from heat and remain covered until popping has ceased, unless you want to be pelted with popcorn. (If you have another method of popping popcorn, feel free to use it.) Place popcorn in a large bowl. Note: It is highly suggested you remove any unpopped kernels as they’ll be hard to pick out once mixed with the peanut butter coating. 
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine honey and sugar. Allow to simmer two minutes. Immediately add the peanut butter and vanilla. Whisk until smooth, if the mixture hardens simply reheat. You can also add some more honey if needed.
  3. Pour peanut butter mixture over popcorn and toss to coat.
  4. Spread popcorn onto baking sheets to allow it to set. Store in an air tight container for up to three days.
