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.
