Delicious, crunchy popcorn treat. Better than regular carmel corn.

This was great. A tasty change from traditional popcorn or caramel corn. The only change I made was to pour the popped popcorn in a brown paper bag, then pour the hot peanut butter mixture on top, close the bag and shake it to coat the popcorn. It gets the popcorn coated evenly and is less messy.

This is good, and though most would not bother to do this... it actually freezes well, when wrapped in plastic wrap. We don't eat lots of sugar, so I use about two cups of this sweetened popcorn to a three cups plain (lightly salted) popcorn. (personal preference; this is good as is, just too sweet for me.)

This turned out great - we'll be eating it often around here. Perfect treat for the kids & it was easy to put together. We did not use microwave popcorn, so I compensated by adding 1/2 t of salt.
