Ingredients

  • 8 Cups plain popcorn (about 1/3 cup popcorn kernels)
  • 2 Cups pretzels
  • 1/2 Cup honey
  • 1/3 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

In a large bowl, pour in the popped popcorn and pretzels; set aside.

In a small saucepan, mix the honey and sugar and bring to a boil.

Let it simmer for about 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and add the peanut butter.

Immediately pour the peanut butter caramel over the popcorn and pretzels.

Gently stir until well-coated.

Season with salt, to taste.

Stir in pretzel bites. Serve!
