real food. real life.
Yes, you read it right. Peanut Butter. Chocolate. Popcorn. Combined to make the ultimate dessert snack! I wouldn't suggest eating a lot of this in one sitting, obviously, but even when you're eating healthy, you deserve to treat yourself now and then. This is a snack that I've adapted to suit my dairy/soy/sugar free diet, my love of peanut butter and popcorn, and Lee's cravings for chocolate. It keeps well, so make a batch and put it up in the cupboard to bring out little bits at a time!
Total time from start to finish: 30 minutes
Food I used:
Air popped popcorn - about a half cup or so of un-popped kernels
Honey, half cup
Maple Sugar, half cup
Natural Peanut Butter, half cup
What I did:
Pop popcorn. Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine honey, maple sugar, and peanut butter in a small pot over medium heat. Add vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon, and nutmeg and stir to combine, off heat.
In batches at a time, drizzle honey mixture over top popcorn and stir to evenly coat.
Grease baking sheet and spread popcorn mixture over sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes to give a bit of crisp!
This is amazing. If you don't like it, you're crazy! But seriously, don't eat it all in one sitting, stay healthy while treating yourself!
We really cooked these things. From scratch. On weeknights. And we even had time to do the dishes.
They have real, simple ingredients that you'll find in your cupboards. They're healthy and delicious. No lies.
