Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn Recipe
Did I mention that the other part of this recipe is that it’s super simple to make? You literally just need a handful of ingredients and that’s it.
We even make this together as a family and enjoy doing so! It’s a fun way to work together in the kitchen and watch how simple it is for a recipe to be created.
I make certain to let the kids take over and do the majority of the steps but of course, I’m here to supervise as needed.
The most tedious part of this recipe is to make certain that you get it all mixed together. (but don’t worry – the worst thing that is going to happen is that you “might” find a lump or two of chocolate!)
