Crunchy Caramel Peanut Butter Popcorn

Just a love seat for 2, a great movie, popcorn and the two of you.  That is all you need for the perfect date night.  The popcorn just got easier.
No popcorn can beat a crunchy caramel popcorn, except one with peanut butter too!

Movie night at home has become our favorite date night since munchkin was born.  I can say that I would much rather stay home and cue up Netflix and watch a movie in the comfort of our home, no crowds, just the two of us (with a pause button).

Sweet, crunchy and peanut buttery what more could you ask for?  How about easy prep and easy clean up.  That will get you to you the love seat and your sweetie sooner!  Enjoy!

Here are some more perfect desserts for movie night!  (Click on the pictures to open in a new window)

No fail Caramel Sauce, tastes like caramel with a hint of butterscotch.  It is a perfect no muss, no fuss caramel sauce!

Lime Coconut Sugar Cookies. A tropical twist on the the traditional sugar cookie; its soft, chewy and loaded with shredded coconut and lime.

Lemon Almond Crinkle Cookies are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside with the perfect amount of lemon and almond to wake up your cookie!

Crunchy Caramel Peanut Butter Popcorn
2 (3.5 ounce) packages microwave popcorn, popped

¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup unsalted butter
½ cup crunchy peanut butter
6 ounces marshmallows
kosher salt

Preheat oven to 300°F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Set aside. 

Pour popcorn into a large bowl.  In a microwave safe bowl combine butter, brown sugar, and marshmallows. Cook 1 minute at a time in the microwave, stirring between cook times, until the mixture is melted and smooth. Stir in the peanut butter until well blended. Pour the caramel peanut butter mixture over the popcorn, and stir to coat the popcorn before it cools.

Bake 15 minutes (until crunchy) and sprinkle with salt.  Serve and enjoy!
