How To Make Gooey Popcorn Mix

This popcorn was so simple to make and everyone gobbled it up. It’s basically a peanut butter and chocolate lover’s dream come true.

  1. Combine the popcorn and Reese’s Puffs in a large bowl, then set aside. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a small pot heat the honey and sugar and bring to a boil, then let boil for just 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Pour over the popcorn mix and stir to coat. Pour out onto the lined baking sheet into an even layer to cool.
  3. Melt the melting chocolates according to package instructions and then drizzle over the cooled popcorn, then sprinkle with the Reese’s Pieces candies.

I loved how the little Reese’s Puffs gave a big crunch while the peanut butter caramel stayed on the softer and gooey side.

I should mention that it’s not a gooey, stick-to-my-fingers-type-of-gooey, but a soft caramel type of gooey that is slightly pliable but doesn’t stick.

A little drizzle of chocolate and a shower of Reese’s Pieces give this crunch mix the perfect finishing touch.

One of my favorite things about General Mills Big G cereals is that they have Whole Grains as the first ingredient and include no high fructose corn syrup. In fact, I was telling my friend that the other day and even showed her the box to prove it. She was pleasantly surprised. 🙂
