Superbowl Snack: Peanut Butter and Jelly Popcorn

To be honest, I wasn't initially excited about the idea of "peanut butter and jelly popcorn" when this recipe first crossed my inbox. But, the novelty of the idea caught me and since I love food experimentation, I couldn't help but try this recipe. That's when I discovered that this popcorn is addictive. Yes, it is. It was nearly as good as caramel corn, but with far less sugar and only a few minutes of time invested. It's my new favorite.

1 large bowl of popped popcorn (probably 2 bags of microwave popcorn)
3 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter
3 Tbsp. grape jelly (or jelly/jam of your choice -- I used strawberry jam)
2 Tbsp. butter

Melt peanut butter, jelly, and butter together in microwave or over low heat.

Pour over popcorn and toss evenly to coat.

Serves 4-6.

  2. Mmmm, sounds good. I think I'll use homemade blackberry jelly and see how it goes!

  3. Heather--when you make this with microwave popcorn, do you use already buttered popcorn or use unbuttered popcorn? I plan to make this on Sunday! It sounds so yummy.

  4. If possible, use plain microwaved popcorn because you need to add melted butter to the peanut butter/jelly mixture to thin it out. Already flavored buttered popcorn would change the taste.
