"Poppy" Chow

This is a new twist on an old classic! You know puppy chow, right? Well, this is a quick and easy recipe inspired by that delicious concoction using popcorn instead of cereal! (Get it, POPPY chow? He he!)

This is great when you want a quick fix for your sweet-tooth. So simple to make, and SO YUMMY to eat!

Poppy Chow

Adapted from

1 bag microwave popcorn (or about 12 cups popped)

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

2 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)

3-4 cups confectioner's sugar (or 1 lb.)

Place popcorn in a large bowl and set aside. (I like to remove the unpopped kernels from the popcorn by "sifting" it over a cooling rack - the kernels fall through the holes.)

In a small saucepan melt butter, chocolate chips and peanut butter over medium-low heat, stirring often, until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour over popcorn. Stir until thoroughly coated. Add confectioner's sugar. Stir until all the popcorn in evenly coated with the sugar. Allow to cool to room temp before transferring to an airtight container. Enjoy!
