Peanut Butter Popcorn Treats


This is a really quick and easy, no bake recipe which is also gluten free. They were a real hit at work and would be great for parties too. As it contains popcorn and peanut butter, both of which start with the letter P, I'm entering them to AlphaBakes which I co-host with Caroline from Caroline Makes who is hosting this month.



 popcorn, dark chocolate peanut butter, peanut butter cups

 freshly popped corn (in the microwave!)



1 packet of microwaveable popcorn
110g sugar
185g honey
150g dark chocolate peanut butter
peanut butter cups


  • Pop the popcorn in the microwave according to the instructions on the pack.
  • Melt the sugar and honey in a pan over medium heat. 
  • Stir in the chocolate peanut butter (or regular peanut butter).
  • Pour the mixture over the fresh popcorn and mix well.
  • Add peanut butter cups to the mixture.

  1. I'm so saving this recipe for Popcorn Month, Ros. We celebrate it here in the states in October. No bake goodness is always best. I've been feeling lazy these days. Must be the change of seasons:)

    Thanks for sharing...
