Chocolate and Peanut Butter Sea Salt Popcorn

How is it already the middle of December??!! Am I the only one who thinks this year has flown by?

I don't come from the most traditional family in the world. This in turn has made me someone that really likes traditions- it's funny how that happens, isn't it? I've always been a bit of the oddball in my family because I love hearing family stories and other people's family stories. One of my traditions (my FAVORITE traditions) I have every holiday is getting together with some my favorite girl friends and having a girls weekend. They're people I met when I moved who quickly became my urban family. Some have moved away, some have stayed, but we always  get together around the holidays to have what you can only call a completely decadent and completely amazing weekend.

This popcorn was the perfect thing to have as a snack while we caught up. Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Sea Salt. I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong with this combination on anything. Throw in popcorn and I'm yours forever. Seriously- this stuff is that good. The chocolate and peanut butter aren't overly sweet; the hint of sea salt is enough to make this completely addictive. (Have you realized by now that sea salt is my answer to everything?) I'm not going to admit how long this lasted with us- let's just say it wasn't long.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Sea Salt Popcorn

  • Popcorn 
  • 1 1/2-2 cups Peanut Butter (I prefer crunchy)
  • 1 12oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • sea salt
  • oil  for popping
Pop desired amount of popcorn. Meanwhile, melt chocolate in a double broiler. Once chocolate has melted, mix the peanut butter into the chocolate and stir until the peanut butter has combined with the chocolate. Lay the popcorn out on a cookie sheet and drizzle the chocolate peanut butter mixture over the popcorn. Sprinkle with sea salt.

Try your very best to share the bowl. I know, it's hard. 
Love you guys!
