Did you know that October is National Popcorn Month?
Yeah, pretty sweet right!? I thought I would come up with a fun popcorn treat to share with you for this month long celebration.
Who doesn’t love Muddy Buddies?! It’s the combination of creamy peanut butter and melty chocolate drizzled all over Chex cereal, then coated with a nice helping of powdered sugar.
Well this is National Popcorn Month, not National Cereal Month…so obviously we have to coat some popcorn in peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar!
This is some really addictive stuff right here.
Before you know it, your fingers and face will be coated in powdered sugar from the uncontrollable urge to stuff your face with this chocolaty goodness.
Pop 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels in 3 tbsp of oil. I use coconut oil cause it’s so much lighter tasting and better for you.
In a separate bowl combine some chocolate chips and peanut butter. Microwave for a minute then stir until smooth. Add a little vanilla and stir that in too.
Drizzle the chocolate mixture over the popcorn and gently stir to coat evenly.
Place a third of the popcorn in a gallon zip-close bag and add 1 cup of powdered sugar. Zip it closed and shake to coat the popcorn with the powdered sugar. Spread the coated popcorn out on some wax paper to cool, then repeat the process for the remaining popcorn.
I’m sure you will love it just as much as I do!
