Superbowl Snack: Peanut Butter and Jelly Popcorn

To be honest, I wasn’t initially excited about the idea of “peanut butter and jelly popcorn” when this recipe first crossed my inbox. But, the novelty of the idea caught me and since I love food experimentation, I couldn’t help but try this recipe. That’s when I discovered that this popcorn is addictive. Yes, it is. It was nearly as good as caramel corn, but with far less sugar and only a few minutes of time invested. It’s my new favorite.

  2. If possible, use plain microwaved popcorn because you need to add melted butter to the peanut butter/jelly mixture to thin it out. Already flavored buttered popcorn would change the taste.

  3. Heather–when you make this with microwave popcorn, do you use already buttered popcorn or use unbuttered popcorn? I plan to make this on Sunday! It sounds so yummy.
