trust me. it is!
i just made a batch the other night for the kids and their friends. and it’s all gone today! i wish i had doubled the recipe. probably best i didn’t do that. maybe i should not have eaten so much at each sitting. but it was so darn good. i just couldn’t resist! don’t worry, the kids got a little bit. haha
WORLD’S BEST POPCORN
1 (3oz) microwave bag of tender white microwave popcorn (no butter flavor)
1 1/2 c. dry roasted peanuts
6 Tblsp. unsalted butter
1 c. white chocolate chips
3/4 c. light brown sugar
1/3 c. light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter (i like jif)
preheat oven to 250. line cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper for easy cleaning. pop popcorn and spread over baking sheet. sprinkle peanuts over top. set aside. in pan, melt butter, white choc chips, brown sugar, corn syrup, salt and peanut butter. stir until smooth. pour over popcorn and peanuts. bake for 15 min. toss to coat. bake another 15 min. stir. cool slightly. you will be eating it already at this point trying to convince yourself you need to taste test it.
side note: if i don’t have unsalted butter on hand (like the other night) i use regular butter and reduce the salt by half (just a few shakes of salt is all i used on this batch because i used dry roasted peanuts with sea salt.
oh, and the cute glass cookie jar container in the photo is from pier 1 (www.pier1.com). i have a few of them. i write cute sayings on them and give them out as gifts. the table runner is from pier 1 also, but from years ago. love that print. and last but certainly not least, the bowls are from my all time favorite store in the world…. anthropologie (www.anthropologie.com). make sure you visit their sites… such cute kitchen stuff right now.
