Make your movie nights a little more exciting with this Peanut Butter and Chocolate Popcorn Crunch Mix! Reese’s Puffs Cereal is combined with popcorn and covered in a soft peanut butter caramel and drizzled with chocolate for a sweet crunch you can’t keep your hands off of!
I can’t tell you how much I’m in love with this popcorn.
Not only are Reese’s Puff Cereal one of my favorites (who can resist a peanut butter and chocolate cereal??), but when it’s combined with this sweet popcorn it’s incredible! It’s basically the perfect MOVIE NIGHT TREAT!!
I’ve teamed up with General Mills Big G to let you know that this summer, specially marked boxes of General Mills Big G cereals will include codes to download a free movie. (two codes are needed to redeem a free movie)
There are several awesome family friendly movies that everyone can enjoy. Free movies include: Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Night at the Museum , Anastasia, Home Alone 2, Marmaduke, Dr. Dolittle, We Bought a Zoo, Mr. Poppers Penguins. It’s perfect timing with the kids out of school because they can help make an awesome treat and then enjoy some family time while you watch your free movie!
Speaking of treats.. let me introduce you to your new bff.
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.
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. 🙂
