"Poppy Chow" is similar to the popular cereal snack “puppy chow,” but made with popcorn instead of Chex cereal.
And it is deee-licious!
Did you know that popcorn contains more than 40 different nutrients, has more iron than eggs, peanuts or spinach and has the most protein of any cereal grain?
Internet, popcorn is your friend.
So why not generously cover your healthy popcorn in chocolate and peanut butter and then drench it with powdered sugar? A healthy snack with a twist. I'm sold.
It is the beginning of a New Year so if you're still on the healthy eating bandwagon (I applaud you), I'm helping you justify a little treat. Work with me here, friends!
Adapted from: Two Peas And Their Pod
9 cups Air-Popped Popcorn
1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
½ cups Natural Peanut Butter
¼ cups Butter (1/2 Stick)
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1-½ cup Powdered Sugar
In microwave or double boiler, melt chocolate, peanut butter, and butter until melted. Stir in vanilla. Place the popped popcorn* in a large bowl and pour the chocolate mixture over all. Stir until evenly coated. Add the powdered sugar and stir until each piece is covered. Spread out on cookie sheets to set the chocolate. Try not to eat the whole batch immediately. If you have any leftover, store in an airtight container.
*Be sure to first remove any unpopped kernels from the popcorn! We don’t want any broken teeth!
