Ingredients
  • 10 cups popcorn, popped (2 bags will do it)
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup roasted salted peanuts
  • ½ cup white corn syrup
  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup chocolate covered raisins (optional)
  • quick healthy snack
Instructions
  1. In large bowl, combine popcorn with peanuts; set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup, stir together over medium-low heat until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to high and let it boil, without stirring. If you are using a candy thermometer when it reaches 250ºF you can remove it. If you are not using a candy thermometer, let it boil for right around 8 minutes, then remove from heat.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the ½ cup of peanut butter until it is liquid, about 30 seconds. Carefully, stir the peanut butter into the caramel mixture you have created. Drizzle over popcorn mixture, stirring to combine. Add raisins if you would like. Mix until popcorn is coated and chocolate is melted.
  4. Spread on waxed paper–lined baking sheets. Let stand in cool, dry place until set, about 20 minutes. Break into clusters.
