  3. White Chocolate & Peanut Butter Popcorn Recipe

I will always choose to eat popcorn. If I have nothing made for dinner, I make popcorn. If I need a snack, you guessed it! I make popcorn.

This fall snack mix is more of a once-in-a-while snack. It’s fancy popcorn that’s perfect for a movie night or to bag up as gifts for friends. Peanuts and candy corn are added into this mix for more of a fall treat, but you can easily swap in your favorite candy. Or leave the nuts out entirely to make this customized for you.

Be warned that the peanut butter and white chocolate poured over the top are addicting. Not that popcorn needs the help, but you’ll love it!

    Amazing. But I think I messed something up. Mine never got hard. It is a bit soggy. What did I do wrong?
    Flavor is great and am going f to try it again this week. Any feedback is appreciated.

    1. I had the same issue. Not sure with the peanut butter it will really get hard. See my review and comments. But it was very good.

    Finally made a batch of this deliciousness and I don’t think I’ll make it again.
    Because I have eaten almost the entire batch myself!
    It is crazy good. It’s creamy and sweet and salty and oh so very good!

    Very yummy but we found that 8 quarts (32 cups) was way too much! Even when we cut the recipe in half, it was a huge amount of popcorn. The one thing that I was a bit disappointed about is that the popcorn didn’t stay as crunchy as I had hoped and was a bit soggy and I guess that is because of the peanut butter but we loved the flavor. I used mini M&M’s instead of the candy corn because that is what I had on hand and it worked really well.

    First – the taste is great. 8 quarts of popcorn seemed like too much after I had it popped so I removed about 1 quart. I upped the peanuts and candy corn slightly as it didn’t look like quite enough when mixed in. I put in on two large trays – it would not fit on one. After sitting for an hour it really does not break up as it not really adhered that much. When you pick up a piece you get about three or for popped kernels and a nut and maybe a candy corn. I think it needs more coating – or even less popcorn. Some of the kernels are not completely coated even though I mixed it well – again maybe a bit more coating. I will definitely make it again – it is very good – but I will experiment with more coating. I think upping the white chocolate might make it adhere together better. Love all your recipes and videos.

    1. If you watch the video – there is no way there is 8 quarts of popped corn in that bowl. I have a huge bowl that is about the same size and my bowl was almost completely full. Plus – he put it all on one tray – and 8 quarts took me two trays. I think this is why it does not stick together like expected – there is too much popcorn.

  5. DO NOT use 8 qts of popcorn! I believe he meant 8 cups. I ended up using about 10 cups and it turned out perfect.

    1. Hi Carol!

      I am glad it turned out perfect for you using 10 cups. The 8 quarts I developed the recipe for is correct. That works out to 32 cups of popped popcorn. This comes from using 1 cup of unpopped popcorn kernels. I just popped a fresh batch and measured it cup for cup and counted to make sure. It does sounds like a lot but it is one full (Stir Crazy) popper full, and the way popped popcorn is measured can be interpreted differently for each person measuring since they don’t fit in a cup measure perfectly. I do use the white chocolate/peanut butter on these 8 quarts.

  6. Is this a good choice for gift giving? How well does it keep and what’s the best way to store it? Looks perfect for the holidays!!
    Thank you!!
