Microwave Peanut Butter Popcorn

  • 1/3 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 3 T. maple syrup
  • 6 c. popped popcorn, plain
  • Fine sea salt, to taste depending how salty you would like it

In the microwave, heat the peanut butter and maple syrup in a large glass measuring cup on HIGH for 1 minute. Stir the mixture and if it's not pourable, continue microwaving for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating period.

Pour this mixture evenly over the bowl of popcorn and immediately stir with large spoons and toss like a salad until the popcorn is evenly coated. Be careful not to crush the popcorn while stirring. Sprinkle on the sea salt to taste. Place the popcorn on baking sheets to cool and dry. Serve when the stickiness factor is to your liking. Best enjoyed within a few hours of making it.

  • Yields: 6 cups popcorn
