Peanut Butter and Honey Popcorn

I first started making this popcorn recipe last year and my kids love it!  For some reason it is a fall-ish snack to me so I haven't made it in almost a year.  The kids were delighted when they saw it spread out on the table when they came in from playing outside.  It's really easy, different, but delicious!

Peanut Butter and Honey Popcorn

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 bags microwave popcorn ( or 16 cups popped popcorn)
brown grocery bag

Make popcorn according to package directions.  Place popped kernels in bowl and then sift through popcorn to place it in grocery bag, careful to not get any seeds.  (Biting on one of those is a major bummer!) In medium saucepan, combine sugar and honey and bring to a rolling boil.  This will take a few minutes.  Remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla.  Stir to combine then pour mixture into bag on popcorn.  Shake vigorously to coat the popcorn.  Spread out on cookie sheets or waxed paper to cool.  Note- this popcorn doesn't harden like caramel corn.  It's stays soft and somewhat sticky, but not stuck-in-your-teeth sticky.
It makes a great treat for school parties or fall activities.  These are all packaged up and ready to go with Mati to his Harvest Party tomorrow at Tuesday School.  Free printable bag labels are from here.  I printed and cut them out and them folded in the edges of snack size ziploc bags and stapled on.  Easy and so cute!
