Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn

Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn
Recipe and Photo by Our Best Bites

About 20 cups of popped popcorn
2 c. honey roasted peanuts
3 c. peanut butter chips (I used Reese's)
1 Tbsp. vegetable shortening or oil
2/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Place the peanuts and popped popcorn in a very large bowl. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the peanut butter chips and vegetable oil or shortening and heat for 2-2 1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Drizzle the melted peanut butter chips over the popcorn and peanuts and toss to combine.

Spread the popcorn onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet. In a Ziploc bag, heat the semi-sweet chocolate chips until just melted and smooth (about 1-1 1/2 minutes, mashing the bag every 20-30 seconds). Cut a small corner in the Ziploc bag and drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn. Allow to stand long enough to become solid (you can transfer the pan to the fridge or freezer to hurry this step along). When done, break the popcorn into small pieces and enjoy!
