Today is the last day of Fall Snack Week.  Hasn’t it been fun?  I have loved it and I have saved my favorite treat for very last.  It happens to involve popcorn, peanut butter, and honey.  This after school peanut butter and honey popcorn is my new favorite and highly addictive treat.  It also comes together in a jiffy.

I found this yummy coated popcorn recipe over at Prudence Pennywise.  Love ya Prudy and so glad you shared this delicious recipe! This recipe is so easy to make that you simply must make it!  You really have no excuse unless, that is, you have a peanut butter allergy.

The popcorn has a perfect amount of peanut butter flavor. The coating is soft, chewy, and so ooey gooey.  It would also be excellent to drizzle with some melted chocolate chips over all of it.  You could use white, semi-sweet, or milk chocolate, The you could have a peanut butter chocolate popcorn.  It would be excellent to give as a gift too.  I think I need to go whip up another batch of this after school peanut butter and honey popcorn right now.

  • 8 cups popped lightly salted popcorn low-fat microwave popcorn is what I used
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla optional, but I totally used it!


  • Place popcorn in a large bowl. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and honey. Bring to a rolling boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth. Add vanilla, if using.
  • Pour peanut butter syrup over popcorn and stir to coat. (You can place the popped popcorn in a large paper bag, then pour over the syrup and shake.  That's how I did it)  Spread out on to a cookie sheet to cool for a few minutes and enjoy!

  1. Do you think this would be good with just the honey and not the half a cup of sugar too? I saw a recipe the other day that just had honey and peanut butter added, not the added sugar also… I was just trying to have less sugar. Thanks for any info

  8. This peanut butter popcorn is awesome! I have made ot several times already. I add pretzels to the popcorn before I put the syrup on it and then shake it up, also after putting it on the pan to cool I sometimes sprinkle 2 tablespoons of mini chocolate chips on top. Definitely a great sweet and salty snack. My whole family devours it.

  13. I just made this about 30 minutes ago and HAD to get on and writ to you!
    Talk about SCRUMPTIOUS!! I made it for our 6 year old as a treat and happened to, you know, eat some for myself…WOW So good….
    I haven’t made my own flavoured popcorn before, it’s always just lightly salted..eay that way i guess.
    Thankyou SO much for shairng this recipe! It’s a keeper =)

    1. Sorry for the typos, was a bit excited writing this! I also love that it’s chewy and gooey for a while then sets =)

  14. I just made this and it is SO good! I added an extra pack of popcorn and felt like it was still plenty of topping for it. This is going to get packaged up in cute bags for my daughter’s Halloween party at school. Thanks for a great snack!

  15. Made this and I can’t stop snacking! I just have a question…when it cools and dries, is it supposed to be DRY to the touch or still a little gooey/moist after sitting for a while? (not that it’s going to last that long at my house!) Thanks for the yummy recipe!!

  16. Oh my goodness this looks fantastic! What is not improved by the addition of honey and peanut butter??

  17. Ooohhh I love this idea! My man loves peanut butter, but this is an interesting way to serve it up. Thanks for sharing!

  18. I love popcorn recipes! This is one I have never heard of, peanut butter and honey makes sense on bread, why not popcorn?
