We’re BACK! But we’ve made some changes. Look around.
PB & J Popcorn is a bit sweet, a bit savory and a whole lot of crunchy yum! A kids favorite and is much healthier than any candied popcorn you would find at the store.
So to make this all stick together (literally) we use a white chocolate base. This enables the flavor to harden into a crisp shell and stick to the popcorn better than without.
You are going to make each popcorn (the nut butter and the jelly) separately and then just toss them together at the end. You could try combining it into one and seeing how you like that, but I like it this way because it gives you the fun contrast in the colors.
Also, once you pour the chocolate over the popcorn, immediately move to the freezer so it can harden. If you leave it out too long the popcorn will start to get soggy. I recommend spreading it thin on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and then sticking in the freezer.
Lastly, in the event you have any left over (which I doubt!), store it in the fridge, not in the pantry. Again this is to that it doesn’t get soggy.
In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:
