Candy Corn Popcorn

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 …
