Peanut Butter Popcorn - Christmas Neighbor Gifts

Just 2 more days until Christmas!
We're in full blown excitement mode around here. 😁
 So I thought I'd sneak away from my hyperactive boys and share a yummy popcorn recipe with you.
This is what we passed out to our neighbors this year. 

We originally planned to make cookies to pass out to our neighbors, but let's just say they turned out a bit too crunchy and so I had to come up with a new plan. 😜
I basically already had all of the ingredient on hand, I just had to grab some fresh marshmallows at the grocery store, and then I whipped up some Yummy Peanut Butter Popcorn. 

Now I made a lot!  I'll share the recipe here in just a bit, but just so you know, I had doubled the recipe here to fill 5 bread bags.

I then packaged them up in some really cute black buckets with red and black buffalo check handles that I found at Target (of course) and they even had cute matching tags to go with.

My boys and I had a lot of fun putting these together and passing them out to our neighbors. It was a good way to pass the time as we wait for Christmas to get here. 

(Don't forget to pin it! You're going to want this recipe on hand. Trust me!)

Peanut Butter Popcorn.

You will need:
- 2 bags of microwave popcorn or about 12 cups of popped popcorn
- 1/2 stick of butter
- 1/2 bag of mini marshmallows (around 3 1/2 cups)
- 1/2 cup of peanut butter
- M&M candies 

Pop your popcorn and spread out onto a large piece of parchment paper. Remove all up-popped kernels.
Next, melt your butter in a saucepan. Add marshmallows and stir. Mix in peanut butter until well mixed.

Pour peanut butter mixture over popcorn. Using a rubber spatula, toss it a bit.
Lastly, sprinkle on the M&M's and let cool.



  1. Is that half a stick of butter?

  2. Just made this & it’s AWESOME!!! Added a little salt for a more sweet & salty effect – so addictive!!!

  3. Wow! What a gorgeous looking, delicious sounding, and ambitious peanut butter popcorn. <3

  4. I'll be making this with crunchy peanut butter, without the added sugar, for a slightly healthier version with a bit more texture!
