This is a quick and easy treat to make for a party or for individually bagged treats. There is a little peanut butter in it, but it isn’t over powering. I believe that the peanut butter cuts the sweetness of the white chocolate and creates a nice creamy texture. The peanuts really give you get that sweet and salty taste. I hope you enjoy it!
I want to remind everyone that the autumn doilies giveaway ends Monday, October 17 … don’t forget to enter!
This is what you will need … white chocolate, dark chocolate, popcorn, Rice Krispies cereal, peanut butter, salted peanuts and candy corn.
Microwave the popcorn and pour it into a large bowl … no unpopped kernels, please … add the Rice Krispies and peanuts … stir it all up! Use your favorite spoon … this is one of mine. Do you remember old Saturday Night Live episodes? This is my “OH, NO MR. BILL!” spoon … maybe I need help … I am now naming my spoons …
Melt the white chocolate and stir in the peanut butter …
Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the popcorn mixture and stir well …
Pour it onto a cookie sheet covered in waxed paper or parchment …
Spread it out …
Drizzle some dark chocolate on top … just use a teaspoon or fork or whatever works for you … it adds some color contrast …
Sprinkle the candy corn on top …
Let it harden up (or pop it in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to speed up the process) … break it into serving size pieces …
