Three kinds of peanut butter goodness makes this Reese's Popcorn an unforgettable snack mix. It's great for munching on for movie nights or for packaging in gift bags for holiday presents.
There is a debate that goes on in our household every year about this time. The question we ask while we eat Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies and pull out the Christmas decorations is "what color lights will go on our tree this time?"
Unfortunately, I am the only one in the family who wants a tree with just white lights. This makes me the bad guy as we pull down the boxes from the storage space.
This year my husband decided that he wanted to put white lights on the tree and then put the colored lights on too. Now in my head this sounded like a bad idea, but there was no way that I was going to admit that to him.
We put the white lights on the tree first, and then I went to get the colored strand when my hubby stopped me. He was only half kidding about putting both sets of lights on the tree. The other half of him just wanted to see if I would concede to his colored light request!
I earned major bonus points for actually being willing to go through with something that I wasn't entirely happy with it. Go me!
My snowman tree is very happy with this decision too because it was getting scared of a huge colored mess being draped on the branches!
Speaking of a huge colored mess...how would you like some Reese's popcorn to munch on? Chocolate, peanut butter, candy...more chocolate!!!
Oh, yeah! This peanut butter popcorn has it going on!! Any treat that consists of THREE chocolates and THREE kinds of Reese's gets an A+ in my dessert book.
This easy snack mix is definitely going on my Christmas treat list this year because I can't wait to make another batch with our whirly pop popcorn maker.
How to make Reese's Popcorn:
- Mix together the popcorn, cereal, and marshmallows in a large bowl.
- Melt the white chocolate melts according to the package directions. Pour over the popcorn mixture and stir until everything is coated.
- Stir in the Reese's peanut butter cups and Reese's Pieces, then pour the mixture on a wax paper lined tray and let set.
- Drizzle the top of the Reese's popcorn with the melted peanut butter chips and the melted chocolate chips. Let set, then break into chunks!
