Salty Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn or the Everything Snack

During monthly times I have the need to snack on something and most of the time I can’t identify what that is. I want a certain texture, a certain taste, a mouth feel, (can you tell I used to work for a food company) that will make me happy. Last night I came up with such a recipe that not only made me happy, but caused a few squeals.

I call it Salty Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn – the Everything snack. A little bit of everything thrown in minus the turmeric I refrained from throwing on; in the right mind set, I might be persuaded for that too.

So here’s what I made:
3 tbsp worth of air popped corn
1 tbsp melted Earth Balance
1 tbsp organic peanut butter (I prefer chunky)
1/2 teaspoon melted chocolate – I used Enjoy Life brand (you can add more if you like)
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt

Combine all items and fold in gently. I saved the chocolate for last so I could see and control my drizzling. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this snack and the salty sweet combination was just perfect for my tastebuds. Please do let me know if you make this and if you have your own variety.

Happy eating!

  1. Sort of reminds me of college when we used to pop microwave popcorn and dump a bag of M and Ms in. The chocolate got all melty and gooey and it was wonderful with the salt. Obviously I don’t do that anymore but I am going to try your version–the peanut butter is a nice add!!

  2. This looks so good – thank you – I am saving this one!! :-)

  3. I love this! There is seriously no better combination than peanut butter and chocolate. And putting it on popcorn is an awesome idea. :)

      Hehe. Thanks! I’m glad you like the idea. This is what happens when I need a snack that I go foraging in the kitchen; voila! :)
