Popcorn Peanut Butter Crunch (for Santa to Munch)


Popcorn Peanut Butter Crunch | TeaspoonofSpice.com

I had all intentions of making these into bars to put on the holiday cookie tray but alas, the popcorn, peanut butter, peanut, dried fruit and honey mixture didn’t quite gel thus resembling more of a Cracker Jack like product. Which still resulted in a very delicious snack and pretty enough for packing in a festive tin for gift giving. Or perhaps Santa would enjoy this as change from the usual cookie plate. (This snack’s combo of healthy fats, protein and whole grain popcorn would do him good for his long night.)

I think it tastes best with popcorn made on your stovetop. You can switch out the nuts and dried fruit for any flavor and color combo you like.
